Slow Cooker Shredded Potato Soup
When making this recipe for Slow Cooker Shredded Potato Soup I was very thankful to have another adult around as I ended up having to rinse out all the milk that I accidentally added way too soon. Nothing like throwing an ingredient in and going…oops..how do I get that back out?
Luckily it was easy to fish out what couldn’t get rinsed off, and rinse off the rest. Then start over again. We had guests over that evening and they said it tasted just like their mom’s made, and my kids enjoyed it as well.
The shredded potatoes make for a smoother soup than if you used cubed potatoes like you would find in other potato soup recipes. You still get some nice potato texture but they are not quite chunks of potatoes. Corn is a nice addition too that adds another flavor profile as well as more texture. You could also add some cooked and diced bacon at the end of the cooking time when you add the milk and Velveeta. That would add a nice smoky flavor. And let’s face it, bacon is always a good thing!
