Slow Cooker BBQ Loaded Baked Potato Soup

New England weather is always something you'll hear people complaining about... it's either too cold, too hot, too snowy, not snowy enough, too rainy... blah blah.

We New Englanders are never happy with the weather... it's never just right.

When the rest of the US was enjoying their late spring day of sunshine and grilling outside last week. I was stuck in the house with some cold rainy days. I was also sick.

I had a little bit of  a predicament...

I was cold and sick... so I wanted soup and something hearty that would stick to my bones.

But because it's late spring... I also wanted some BBQ... but with the rain and my cold I wasn't going outside to cook!

This soup solved all my problems... It was hot, it was hearty, it had the BBQ flavor I was craving... and it was easy to make in my no fuss slow cooker!



Slow Cooker BBQ Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Ingredients:

6 large potatoes peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
1 cup diced onions
4 cups chicken or vegetable stock
2 tbs minced garlic
1 tbs BBQ seasoning ( I used this Sticky Sweet BBQ Dry Rub from Mystic Blue Spice)
1/4 cup BBQ sauce
 1 cup of heavy cream
1 cup of sour cream
1 cup of extra sharp cheddar cheese
8 slices of bacon cooked crispy and crumbled

Directions:

In your slow cooker add your potatoes, onions, stock, garlic, BBQ seasoning, BBQ sauce. Cook on high for about 4-5 hour or low for 6-8 hours.

Mix in heavy cream cheddar cheese.

Dish up into bowls and dollop each serving with sour cream, sprinkle with bacon and scallions.
Sliced Scallions.

  16. What size crock pot did you use for this recipe? Trying to figure out if I need to adjust the ingredients to use my 6 quart crock pot. Thanks - Hillary

  17. Hi there, so you bake the potatoes first, don't they get really mushy in the crock pot for 6-8 hours after they are already baked?

  18. Crockpot has finally come to Norway! And this is my first time using it. High hopes, but i didn't realize that I had to bake the potatoes first. Its cooking now, and hopefully it will be ok in 8 hours when I try it. It looks delisious though. :-)

    1. We also call it heavy whipping cream! It sounds like it could be double cream.
