Hash Brown Slow Cooker Potato Soup

I love the ease of a slow cooker for busy weeknight meals. What’s even better than the help of a slow cooker is products that are healthy, but already prepped for you. This makes getting your recipe ready even quicker.

Less time prepping means more time with what’s important, spending time with your family.

Hash Brown Slow Cooker Potato Soup Tips

  1. First, if you don’t have a slow cooker, you can make this stovetop in a large pot. Add your ingredients to a large pot. Then, cook the potatoes on simmer for 2 hours.
  2. As well, change up your soup by adding one cup each of corn and/or ham and 1/2 cup of celery.
  3. Finally, Simply Potatoes in the refrigerated dairy section of your grocery store. They’re in the cooler next to the eggs at my store. (Simply Potatoes are really better than frozen hash brown potatoes. Therefore, I highly recommend them. However, you can use frozen.)

    I also use a can of cream of chicken soup. A block of cream cheese and it really kicks up the flavor! The flavor is rich and creamy. My family goes crazy over this recipe! Good for family parties especially during winter cold months with a bread bowl! Yum!

  2. Can you freeze this delicious soup? I’m the only one in my household and I really enjoyed this recipe but I’ll like to freeze part of it for later.

  3. 5 stars
    Great recipe! I didn’t have heavy cream so I subbed a block of cream cheese and a 1/2 c of milk. It was delicious… I added real bacon bits and it seriously tasted just like outback’s loaded potato soup.

  4. 5 stars
    I made this last night for my family. My son just kept saying how good it was. I’m making it again for a work party today. It is delicious! It has such depth of flavor. You had me at heavy cream!❤️

  5. This was so yummy! Tastes very much like Stuart Anderson’s Cattle Company’s baked potato soup but SO much easier! Thanks!,

  6. 5 stars
    My schedule these days is so busy, I have to do crock pot recipe pretty often. This was so creamy and good that my picky husband was impressed. I made on change but my husband hates onion, I precooked then so they would pretty much disintegrate and he wouldn’t find one.

    1. I used to do this when my boys were little. I’m sure my mother did it when I was little too. lol Thank you, I’m happy you liked it.

  7. 5 stars
    Soooo good and simple to prepare but certainly doesn’t skimp on depth of flavor! This is such a great soup! Rich and flavorful!! ♥️

    They didn’t have the hashbrowns so used the diced potato version. Blended before I added the cream mixture. Added garlic powder and a bit of paprika. Turned out thick and delicious. Topped with cheese, bacon and a little sour cream. Awesome on this snowy day

  9. 5 stars
    Very easy! I have been eating it for 3 days now. I added garlic powder and onion powder for more flavor.

  10. Do I need to change anything if I use frozen hash browns? My store was out of the simply potato kind.

    1. My store was also out of simply potatoes, so I tried the frozen ones. When I made this with simply potatoes it was fabulous. Seriously not as good with frozen. Glad I made it the correct was first!

  11. 5 stars
    Dynamite! Added a touch of nutmeg but otherwise played by the rules. Doubled the recipe and it was SOOOO Good! My soup-hating son even loved it. (Adding bacon helped!). I will for sure make this again.

  12. My slow cooker doesn’t have a medium temperature. So do I use low or high for the last 30 minutes?
