Slow Cooker Bacon Potato Chowder
I used the recipe as a baseline and made some modifications. It turned out delicious and so easy to make!! Below is the recipe with my own personal touch.
-4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled – (I used a jar and a half of the Hormel real bacon bits)
-Ham, cooked and cut into bits- (you can find these already pre-cooked and cut in the meat and cheese section at Foodlion) I used the whole bag. About a cup or two.
-1 large onion, chopped (I used a large white onion)
-4 (10.75 ounce) cans Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Potato Soup
-4 (10.75 ounce) cans milk (to make a thicker soup only use 3 cans)
-1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper or to taste
- Salt (you’re going to have to taste and add salt as it cooks)
-2 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces (I used 3 potatoes)
-1/2 cup chopped fresh chives
-2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1. Stir the bacon, ham, onion, soup, milk, black pepper, salt, potatoes and 1/4 cup chives in a 6-quart slow cooker.
2. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours or until the potatoes are tender. Stir occasionally.
3. Add the cheese and stir until the cheese is melted. Sprinkle with the remaining chives.
*Instead of adding Cheese into the entire soup I just sprinkled it on top of each serving and also added some more of the Hormel real bacon bits as a topper.
*Also, I added diced green onions to the entire soup, about a hand full.
