Foodie Friday - Potato Soup

Foodie Friday is always a great recipe swap day -- I've tried lots of new dishes since Gollum started this party months ago. I haven't shared anything for quite awhile -- but since so many of us are experiencing such cold weather I thought I'd share one of my favorite crock pot soup recipes.

There really wasn't much way to make this look "pretty" -- it just sort of looks like white stuff in a crock pot. And you'll notice my "lazy gal" liner -- I use these all the time. They make cleaning up so easy -- just lift out the liner and wipe out the pot -- no scrubbing!

Maybe this looks a little better -- a ladle of "white stuff" -- anyway's the recipe:

1- 30 oz. bag of frozen hash browns
3- 14 oz. cans of chicken broth
1- 14 oz. can of cream of chicken soup
1- 14 oz. can of cream of celery soup
1/2 Cup chopped onion
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 small container sour cream

place in crockpot for 6 hours low

Simple! Easy!

I just read today that if you don't put the sour cream in until the last 15 minutes -- it will look better. (wish I'd known that before I took these pictures!)

Since I often don't leave my office until 6 or 7p.m. --- it's wonderful to come home on a cold night to a hot bowl of soup -- just add good bread and a salad and you've got a wonderful winter supper.

Now to see what everyone else is cooking up -- be sure to visit Foodie Friday over at "Designs by Gollum" .

See ya!

  6. Potato soup is a household favorite here, and I'll be posting the batch we made this week tomorrow for the new meme at Once in a Blue Moon! Mine had to turn into vichyssoise to suit the topic, but it was still potato soup!
    And I have to say, that it does look pretty because it tastes so good!

  7. Sounds and looks tasty Martha! I never heard of lining the crockpot before. May give that a go!
