Slow Cooker Potato Soup

It is officially fall which is soup time. Here is a great potato soup that we had tonight. Sorry, I forgot to take a picture.

Slow Cooker Potato Soup

6 slices of bacon, cooked
1 small/medium onion, chopped
2 cans chicken broth
5-6 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut into pieces
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1/2 cup flour
1 pint half and half
1 can evaporated milk

Cook bacon and set aside (refrigerate). Cook onion in a little bacon grease. Place onion in crock pot. Put potatoes on top and cover with chicken broth. If needed, add enough water to cover potatoes. Cook on low 6-7 hours, or high for about 4-5 hours. 1/2 hour before serving, use a potato masher to mash up about 1/4 of potatoes in soup. Whisk together half and half and flour then add to slow cooker. Pour in evaporated milk and add bacon that has been cut into pieces. After 1/2 hour it will be thick and yummy! Serve with shredded cheese on top and a hot loaf of bread.
