  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Chopped green onions, for garnish (optional)


  1. Cook Bacon and Onion: In a skillet over medium heat, cook the chopped bacon until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and drain on paper towels. In the same skillet with the bacon drippings, sauté the diced onion until softened and translucent.
  2. Combine Ingredients in Slow Cooker: Transfer the cooked bacon and onion to the slow cooker. Add minced garlic, diced potatoes, chicken or vegetable broth, dried thyme, salt, and pepper to the slow cooker. Stir to combine everything evenly.
  3. Cook in Slow Cooker: Cover the slow cooker and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours or on high heat for 3-4 hours, or until the potatoes are tender and easily pierced with a fork.
  4. Blend Soup (optional): For a creamier consistency, use an immersion blender to partially blend the soup directly in the slow cooker until desired thickness is reached. You can also blend a portion of the soup in a blender and then return it to the slow cooker.
  5. Add Cream and Cheese: Stir in the heavy cream and shredded cheddar cheese until the cheese is melted and the soup is creamy. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
  6. Serve: Ladle the creamy potato bacon soup into bowls. Garnish with crispy bacon pieces, chopped green onions, and extra shredded cheese if desired.
  7. Enjoy: Serve the Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Bacon Soup hot, accompanied by crusty bread or your favorite side for a cozy and satisfying meal.

This hearty and flavorful soup is perfect for cozy evenings or any time you want a comforting bowl of goodness. The slow cooker makes preparation a breeze, allowing the flavors to meld together beautifully for a delicious dining experience!
