Kitchen Confessions: Easy Crockpot Potato Soup

Do any of you struggle with what to cook on a busy weeknight?  Jen and I were talking recently how we need easy meals that can be ready for our families to eat whenever they are home because these days it feels like everyone eats in shifts.  With everyone's practice and sports schedules it is rare that we are all sitting down to eat at the same time during the week. Some of us eat at a normal dinner, some eat a little something before practice and others eat super late after practice.  

Enter my favorite kitchen appliance...the crockpot!  There is nothing I love more than putting everything in it earlier in the day and having your dinner ready that evening.  It keeps food warm so people can eat in shifts and usually means there are less pots and pans to clean up.  

When I'm looking for recipes if it has too many steps or too many ingredients I'll usually avoid them.  Also, too much prep before is usually a no-go for me.  I like the "just pour it all in and let the crockpot do it's magic" kind of recipes. 

In an effort to branch out a little and try some new recipes I found a winner. I've made Potato Soup in the crockpot before, but it has been a while so I took a look at a few different recipes and sort of combined them all to make my own.  

Easy Crockpot Potato Soup 


1 32 oz bag frozen cubed hash browns 

1 can cream of chicken soup 

2 cans chicken broth 

1/2 cup chopped onion

ground pepper to taste 

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese 

Optional toppings: 

shredded cheddar cheese 

crumbled bacon 

sour cream 

green onions 


1. Pour frozen hash browns, cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, chopped onions and pepper in a crockpot. 

2. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours. 

3. Cube block of cream cheese and add to crockpot for 30 minutes.  Stir occasionally. 

4. Once all cream cheese has melted into the soup, use a potato masher, big spoon or spatula (my utensil of choice because I don't own a potato masher) to smoosh hash brown pieces into a smooth, creamy consistency. 

5. Stir well and serve with desired toppings!  

My kids loved this and my daughter told me I should make it ALL the time.  I'd say that is a dinner winner and is totally going to be added into the dinner rotation at our house.
