Baked Potato Soup

So, I thought I would share a really yummy soup recipe I made this week. It has become one of my new favorites and is perfect for a cold wintry day.

6 medium Russet Potatoes cubed
1 large onion chopped
3 cans chicken broth with roasted garlic (I couldn't find this, so I used 1 can with roasted veggies and 2 cans regular.)
1/4 cup butter
2 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 tsp. pepper

Put above ingredients in crock pot and cook until potatoes are tender. (I just did it on the stove because I didn't have all day.) Mash potatoes until soup is slightly thickened then add:

1 cup Half and Half
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese (I used medium.)
3 T chives (I used a little less.)

Stir and serve with sour cream, crumbled bacon, and more grated cheese.

Seriously DELISH!! (And no, it's not even close to fat free.) Hope you enjoy.

That sounds so good!--We always have plenty of potatoes and onions on hand. I'll have to make some for the day after Thanksgiving.
