Loaded Crockpot Potato Soup with Bacon

Loaded crockpot potato soup with bacon is the ultimate comfort food: it’s perfectly satisfying and full of flavor. This recipe is easy to prepare and can be done in only 5 hours with your crockpot on high.

This recipe will also make enough to feed a group! Or if you’re cooking for yourself, you’ll have plenty of leftovers.

The best part of this recipe is that it uses red potatoes. Of all the potato soups I’ve tried (and I love potato soup), the red potatoes add an extra tasty element. Combined with the other flavors of the soup, and topped with more bacon, cheese, and green onions – this is the ultimate loaded potato soup.
