I love cooking anything in the crockpot, why I had never thought of making my favorite dish, Loaded Baked Potato Soup in the crockpot is beyond me. I saw a recipe for crockpot Loaded Baked Potato Soup on Youtube and had to try it, after all, I love all potato recipes and I also love my crockpot so it was an obvious match made in Heaven for me. The recipe couldn’t be easier, I just threw all these ingredients into the crockpot, (no pre-cooking necessary). I started by adding all my ingredients to the crockpot.
Then I just covered the crockpot and set it on high for 3 hours and let the crockpot work it’s magic! Let me tell you this Loaded Baked Potato Soup is the best I’ve ever tasted, I highly recommend this recipe.
