My kids are not going to be happy. I’m winging dinner tonight. I am basing it on a recipe I made before but just can’t quite put my hands on.
Here’s what I did:
Pealed and sliced a tick under 10 lbs of potatoes (there’s a bunch of us so we do volume)
- 1 large onion – sliced and diced
- 1 box of chicken broth – 32 ounces. I probably will need more.
I put them all in my crock pot and turned it on high. In 1 hour, I will turn it down to low. We had a power outage so I am behind in putting this together.
Later, I will add:
- 1 cup or so of grated cheddar cheese
- 4 or 5 slices of bacon
- 3 or 4 cups of skim milk.
I am going to cook it around 5 hours or until it seems done. Hopefully, 5 hours or my kids will be cranky. We don’t do hunger well.
Well with a little work, it turned out great. I would add more cheese and more bacon. For the amount I made, you could barely taste it.
After 5 hours, the potatoes were still hard and I had hungry people. I think I overloaded my crock pot. To solve the problem, I just moved it from the crock pot to the stove. After cooking it on a medium heat for about 30 minutes, it was ready. The soup tasted great.
The family gave it 1 and 1/2 thumbs, 2 being the best. It would have been two thumbs up but they wanted more cheese and bacon. We solved the cheese problem by grating a little more and just adding it when you dished it up. Bacon could have been added too, but I didn’t have any.
