Going Back For A Second Bowl? Oh Yeah!

  • slow cooker roasted garlic baked potato soup

Although the recipe calls for Monterey Jack and cheddar, don’t be afraid to experiment with different cheeses when you make this soup. Think Swiss cheese and smoked Gouda. Maybe Bleu cheese and Havarti. Each combination you try will give the soup a totally different flavor profile.

This is a soup that is very heavily-laden with garlic, so proceed slowly in adding the garlic. Garlic powder has a very strong flavor, whereas roasted garlic will have a sweeter taste, so decide how much of each you prefer.

If you really love garlic, roast a little bit extra and use it, along with crumbled bacon, as a garnish. If you want to save a little time, just put the garlic cloves in with the broth, instead of roasting them separately.



3 lbs. red potatoes, organic

4 cups chicken broth, low sodium

1½ cups heavy cream

1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, grated

1 cup cheddar cheese, grated

Chives, sour cream, and cheese to serve, if desired



Rinse the potatoes and cut into quarters. Place potatoes in slow cooker with broth, celery, red onion and spices. Mix well and cook on high for 3½ hours.
