SO GOOD! Tastes like a loaded baked potato! Fully cooked in 3 hours. I left the skins on my potatoes for a true baked potato taste. I used a crock pot liner for easy clean up, and since my slow-cooker is a 5 quart, I cut the recipe down to 8 servings (used 3 cans soup + 3 1/4 can milk + 1/4 can half-and-half) but still used 4 slices of bacon and 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese. I also used dried minced onions and dried chopped chives, which turned out just fine.

I didn't have a problem with the soup burning and sticking to the bottom. It definitely took about 3 hrs for the potatoes to become tender though. The flavor is delicious! I didn't have 4 cups of milk and didn't feel like running to the store/my crock pot was also a little to small to hold all the ingredients, but the soup still turned out amazing and tastes great. I put in 1 and 1/2 cups of milk and the soup is nice and creamy. 4 cups would make a thinner soup, so it's all preference. This is a great recipe!

I try to follow the recipe the first time, and that was a mistake on this one. I'd highly recommend that you not set this on HIGH and leave for 3-4 hours. All you're really cooking here are the onions (which take next to no time) and the potatoes which are cut into 1/2-inch cubes which isn't going to take that long either. Actually, I think this could be prepared just as easily on top of the stove. I was gone for about 3 hours, and when I came back, this chowder was well on its way to being totally burned on the bottom. I managed to salvage it, and all things considered, it turned out pretty well. I didn't measure the cheese and I probably added more than called for, but the cheddar flavor in this is nice. I wish this were lower in sodium, but I will make this again on a day when I plan to be home and check it every hour to get the timing correct.
