Crock pot potato soup …YUM, that’s all I have to say! A few weeks ago I was in charge of making soup for a church event and I asked my friends what to make. My friend Kristyn recommended her crockpot potato soup and it did not disappoint. It was so good, I decided to share it with you guys too. I adapted a few things, but overall this recipe is SO simple to make and super yummy. Just throw it all in a crock pot and your done. Seriously! Oh did I mention it’s super healthy too? Right…butter and cream. Shh don’t tell! ;)

    This looks like one I make, except I only add 2 potatoes and then a head of cauliflower. This might be a good one for when company comes over and I’m not counting calories. yum!

    • Jamielyn posted on March 1, 2013 at 3:37 pm (#

      I’ll have to try it with cauliflower sometime. Thanks for your comment! :)

    This looks amazing! Love slow cooker soups!

      Me too! They are the best kind of recipes. ;) Have a great weekend!

    It looks absolutely delicious Jamielyn! I’ve just gotten back from the store and have everything I need to make it for dinner tonight. My crock pot is patiently waiting for me to step away from the computer. Will let you know how it turns out. Thanks for sharing!


    • Jamielyn posted on March 1, 2013 at 3:38 pm (#

      Thanks for your comment Debbie! Hope you enjoyed it! :)

        Just wanted to come back and let you know that it was FANTASTIC!! I accidentally bought the shredded hash browns, but it was fine. Next time, I’ll get the chunks. Anyway, my whole family loved it, including my very picky son. Tonight was leftover night, so my daughter and I cleaned it up. It will definitely go in my favorite recipes pile. So glad you shared. Thanks!


      • Jamielyn posted on March 4, 2013 at 11:41 am (#

        Yay! So glad your whole family loved it!

        Jamie, do you have any heart healthy recipe s? My husband has heart condition which requires low sodium also, his kidneys were damaged. Trying to learn new things/ways to cook healthy for both conditions. Any ideas? Substitutions for to make low sodium & low protein, high carbs, & reduced fluids. Can you help? Thank you.

      • Jamielyn posted on July 23, 2014 at 8:30 pm (#

        Hi Suzanne! I’m sorry it has taken me a while to get back to you! Some of my favorite heart healthy recipes are my whole 30 recipes! I love my mexican chicken soup: and my summer salad:

    Just had this for dinner tonight and wanted to stop by and tell you that it was excellent! I added some bacon but otherwise followed your recipe exactly. Thanks for sharing!

    • Jamielyn posted on March 4, 2013 at 8:30 pm (#

      Ooo bacon makes everything better. ;) Thanks for commenting!

      • Jaclyn posted on March 6, 2013 at 3:44 pm (#

        I added bacon and sour cream!! Amazing!!

  6. Kathy posted on April 24, 2013 at 7:48 am (#

    Has anyone tried cutting this in half for a smaller crockpot? It looks delicious but I have a “crockpot for two”…

  7. Karleigh posted on October 21, 2013 at 5:43 pm (#

    How long does it take for the potatoes to cook/soften? I started at 1:30, and they’re still pretty chunky. Thinking of switching it to “high” for an hour or so. Thanks!

    • Jamielyn posted on October 26, 2013 at 4:54 pm (#

      I cooked mine on low for six hours and the potatoes turned out perfectly soft! :)

    I only have one can of cream of chicken, do you think I could use 1 cream of chicken, 1 cheddar cheese soup (campbell’s) and 1 cream of celery?

    • Jamielyn posted on October 31, 2013 at 1:39 pm (#

      I think using 1 cheddar cheese soup would make it really yummy! It will change the flavor a little bit, but the consistency should stay the same. You’ll have to give it a try and let me know! :)

  9. Katie posted on February 16, 2014 at 10:31 am (#

    What is the pint half and half. I really wanna try this tonight

    • Jamielyn posted on February 17, 2014 at 5:12 pm (#

      Hi Katie! You can find Half & Half by the milk/dairy section at the grocery store! It is a mixture of milk and cream. Hope you enjoy it! :)

  10. Autumn posted on April 3, 2014 at 2:52 am (#

    This looks awesome! I’m a vegetarian, so I’m going to try it with cream of mushroom soup (or maybe cheddar broccoli soup?) in place of the cream of chicken. Hopefully the flavors taste just as great!

    • Jamielyn posted on April 4, 2014 at 7:04 pm (#

      You’ll have to let us know how it turns out! I’m sure either one would be yummy! :)

      • Julia posted on April 27, 2014 at 1:14 pm (#

        How many cups if hashbrowns?

  11. Julia posted on April 27, 2014 at 1:22 pm (#

    How many cups of hashbrown potatoes should I use?

    • Jamielyn posted on April 29, 2014 at 12:31 am (#

      Hi Julia! I’m not sure how many cups it is, but you should use the whole package! :)

  12. Kristina posted on June 8, 2014 at 12:16 pm (#

    Just wondering if you need to add a can of water as directed for each cream soup?

    • Jamielyn posted on July 2, 2014 at 4:10 pm (#

      Hi Kristina! You don’t need to add the water, the half and half and butter will be plenty of liquid! :)

  13. Laura posted on October 3, 2014 at 10:19 am (#

    Hi Jamielyn! How many does this soup serve? 

    • Jamielyn posted on November 24, 2014 at 8:10 pm (#

      Hi Laura! This soup should feed 4-6 depending on how hungry your eaters are. :)

  14. Katherine posted on October 26, 2014 at 1:44 pm (#

    I know someone who cooks this similarly, but they use some type of cheese to it, like, while it’s cooking. And it tastes realllll cheesy and loved it. But I want to try this.

    • Jamielyn posted on November 18, 2014 at 9:16 pm (#

      Mmmm sounds delicious! I love cheesy soups!

  15. Ames posted on November 6, 2014 at 6:03 pm (#

    My little family won’t touch veggies (the boyfriend despises celery). Is the taste apparent? Could I sub a can of cream of cheddar, to give it a cheesy touch or would it be overwhelming?

    • Jamielyn posted on November 19, 2014 at 5:59 pm (#

      The taste is not very apparent! I think the cream of cheddar would be too strong, but you could definitely try it if you like a lot of the cheesy taste! :)

  16. Karyn posted on November 14, 2014 at 10:12 am (#

    Hi  Jamielyn,
     I was just wondering how many servings you get out of that exact recipe??? Thank you in advance , I will definitely  try it , it sounds delicious!

    • Jamielyn posted on December 2, 2014 at 11:01 pm (#

      Hi Karyn! This recipe should serve 4-6 people. :)

  17. alex posted on January 8, 2015 at 8:19 am (#

    I was so excited to do this recipe…. but really sadden to read that you use several can of soups in this recipe. I understand the logic behind that. But guess I am disappointed as I wanted to make from scratch I could just throw into the crockpot/slow cooker and not use already made soup.

  18. Allison posted on January 24, 2015 at 7:11 pm (#

    Hello! I made two big crockpots full of this wonderful recipe for a retreat for college students and they raved about it! Thank you for making such a lovely recipe that I could wake up and throw together before breakfast at the campground and have it ready for lunch! :)

    My Walmart was out of frozen hash browns, so I ended up using 4 cans of diced potatoes per recipe and it turned out perfectly! 

    • Jamielyn posted on February 2, 2015 at 4:43 pm (#

      I’m so glad it turned out well for you! Thanks for your comment. :)

  19. Liz posted on April 5, 2015 at 1:27 am (#

    Your recipe looks amazing can’t wait to try it. This is a stupid question but want to make sure I’m right but does  TB stand for tablespoon of butter? 

    • Jamielyn posted on April 19, 2015 at 12:40 am (#

      Yes it does! Hope you enjoy this soup! :)

  20. christal harris posted on May 3, 2015 at 5:57 pm (#

    With the chicken soup and celery soup do I add the can of water for each can of soup or just the soup?

  21. Mari Diaz posted on September 22, 2015 at 10:28 pm (#

    Let’s  get cooking! 😉

  22. Jen posted on October 31, 2015 at 10:27 pm (#

    What size crock pot is this recipe for? I am thinking of doubling it unless it is already 6 qt. Size. Thanks! 

    • Laura Capello posted on November 1, 2015 at 12:13 pm (#

      Hi Jen! I am not certain what size we used. I did a rough estimate based on the ingredients, and I think you’d be good to double the recipe for a 6 qt – but it might be very full. :)

  23. Diane posted on February 16, 2016 at 5:06 pm (#

    This sounds fantastic! I love easy cock pot recipes, and I can’t wait to try this. Thanks for sharing Jamielyn!

    I was wondering how many servings does this make?

    • I Heart Naptime posted on July 16, 2016 at 8:06 am (#

      I have found it serves 4 to 6, depending on how hungry everyone is. :)

  25. Laura posted on October 20, 2016 at 10:56 am (#

    Can I use regular milk instead of half and half? 

    • I Heart Naptime posted on October 20, 2016 at 6:17 pm (#

      You could, but it will be thinner and not as creamy.

  26. Tammy posted on January 12, 2017 at 4:17 pm (#

    the hashbrown size is 26oz. Do I add the whole thing?

    • I Heart Naptime posted on January 12, 2017 at 4:46 pm (#

      I would! :)
