Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup
This was really good. I don't know what happened to those who thought theirs was too thin-mine was almost too thick. I will have to thin the leftovers.I browned the bacon, then cooked leeks in the bacon grease. I added the leeks along with the bacon grease, keeping the bacon out to add when I served it. I also used fat-free half-and-half.I also used a box of chicken broth instead of the concentrate and water.
