After 5 hours, cut up the cream cheese into small pieces (1-2″ blocks) and add it to the slow cooker. Give it a stir and let it cook for another 1/2 hour. 

After 1/2 hour, stir the soup again, making sure all of the pieces of cream cheese have melted. (Sometimes, if there are some larger pieces of cream cheese that haven’t melted, I will press them against the side of the slow cooker to get them to melt faster and then I’ll stir it again).

That’s it! It’s ready to serve. I add some shredded cheddar cheese and bacon crumbles to the top. If you don’t have time to make the bacon, just grab a jar of crumbles from the grocery store and throw them on top. I love the creamy, crunchy combination.

I have made this soup for several years and my family loves it. It’s the perfect comfort food.

The cream of potato soup recipe is also a great meal to make for shut-ins, an elderly friend, or a church potluck. The recipe makes enough to divide it up into bowls and freeze for several more meals.
