Take a 1/2 a pound of Bacon, onions and celery and fry it up in a dutch oven on the stove, while this is cooking, peel and cut up 4 or 5 cups of potatoes.

Once your veg and bacon are cooked throw in 2 Tablespoons of flour, and stir it up, add potatoes, Milk , Chicken bouillon to taste, and some more flour maybe another tablespoon, add salt and pepper, cook till potatoes are done and you have some darn good potato soup.

Oh and if you want you can add carrots thily sliced.....Yummy

  • 4 to 5 cups cubed potatoes, about 3 pounds
  • 1 can cheddar cheese soup
  • 1 can cream of celery soup
  • 1 soup can water
  • 2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules - I used Wylers Shakers chicken garlic herb flavor
  • 6 to 8 slices cooked bacon, diced
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper (or use 2 tablespoons chopped pimiento)
  • 1 cup chopped green onion, with much of the green
  • Dash ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • dash thyme


Combine in crockpot the cubed potatoes, soups, water, bouillon, bacon, bell pepper, and green onion and pepper. Cover and cook on low heat for 6-7 hours. Add parsley and thyme for the last hour of cooking time.
Potato soup serves 4
