Pinned it, Made it! Monday ~ Week 15 ~

I’m sorry to be a little later getting the Pinned it, Made it! Monday post on today. We decided as a kind of last minute thing to go on a fall sightseeing weekend trip and didn’t get back in until late last night.

For my Pinned it, Made it! Monday entry, I’m sharing a recipe that I came across on a new blogging friend’s blog a week or so ago. I knew it would be good and pinned it to my What’s For Dinner Pinterest board. I made it for supper and we loved it! As a matter of fact, we ate every single bite between having left-overs for supper again and then for lunch until it was gone!

Here’s the original pin from Kelly:

And the recipe:

Loaded Potato Soup

6 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 large onion, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
3- 14 oz cans chicken broth
1/4 c butter
2 1/2 t salt
1 1/4 t freshly ground pepper
1 c whipping cream or half and half
1 c shredded SHARP Cheddar cheese
3 T chopped fresh chives (I used about 1 T dried chives)
1 (8 oz.) sour cream (for garnish only if desired)
4 bacon slices cooked and crumbled Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Combine first 6 ingredients in a stock pot (or in a 5 qt. slow cooker).

Cover and cook on medium-high until potatoes are tender (slow cooker: high for 4 hours or on low 8 hours).

Mash mixture until potatoes are coarsely chopped and soup is slightly thickened; stir in cream, cheese and chives.

Top with sour cream and sprinkle with bacon and Cheddar cheese before serving.

And here's mine before adding our individual extras:

Note from Tammy:

I cooked mine in the crock pot on high for 4 hours.  I added some (just a little) sour cream, bacon, and shredded cheese into the entire pot of soup right before I put it on the table and then we added more of those ingredients individually to our taste. Oh, and instead of using crumbled bacon, I used real bacon bits.

It was delicious! And it’s perfect for a cold day!
