Course Main Course
Servings 8 servings


  • 6 cups chicken broth {or vegetable}
  • 5-6 medium russet potatoes {peeled and diced}
  • 8 oz. cream cheese {cubed}
  • 1 cup heavy cream {or milk}
  • 2 oz. pkg. instant mashed potatoes
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder


  • 1 1/2-2 cups cheddar cheese {shredded}
  • 6-8 slices cooked bacon {chopped}
  • 3-4 green onions {thinly sliced}
  • 1 cup sour cream


  1. Line your crock pot with a liner. Add the chicken {or vegetable} stock and potatoes to the crock pot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.

  2. 30 minutes before serving, add cubed cream cheese, heavy cream {or milk}, instant mashed potatoes, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Stir to combine. Continue stirring off and on for the remainder of the cooking time to be sure that the cream cheese is melting into the soup and everything is warm.

  3. When ready, serve with desired toppings. We love shredded cheese, chopped bacon, sliced green onions and sour cream but there are so many wonderful things you can use. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
