With all the flavors of a loaded baked potato, this soup is comfort food as it’s best! Recipes like my Easy One Pot Lasagna Soup, and Chicken and Cheese Tortellini Soup, are dishes that are sure to warm your tummy and your soul.
I am a big fan of the crockpot for a few reasons, but the main one is this – it does all the work for me when I’m short on time. When the busyness of life keeps us running from one thing to another, I know I can count on my slow cooker to help me get a delicious dish on the table for my family.
Using a slow cooker also has other benefits besides saving time! Here’s a few of my favorites:
- You can turn inexpensive cuts of meat and simple ingredients into something outstanding.
- This method of cooking produces deep, rich flavors along with amazing sauce and gravy.
- Another great thing about using a slow cooker is that you don’t have to wash a ton of dishes, and that’s a plus in my house.
- Done properly, with a little bit of prep and planning, cooking in a crockpot can become a favorite way to cook for your family and friends!
This Crockpot Potato Soup is so rich, creamy and truly tastes like a loaded baked potato. It’s comfort food that’s simple with surprising flavor. It’s also easy on your budget so if you’ve got a crowd of people to feed, then this soup is just what you need.

Equipment You’ll Need To Make This Soup
One of my favorite ways to serve up a big batch of this soup is to set up a “toppings bar.” I line up different cheeses, bacon, ham, hot sauce, sour cream, and chopped herbs and let folks “go to town” adding all their favs to their bowl of soup.

Can This Soup Be Frozen?
I generally do not freeze soup that has milk in it since it tends to separate. If you want to give it a try, make sure to cool the soup in the fridge for 2 to 3 hours. Place it in a freezer-safe container or ziptop bag. It can be stored frozen for up to 2 months. To reheat, thaw in the fridge then reheat in your slow cooker on low or on the stovetop.

- 3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes – washed and cut into approximately 1-inch cubes (do not peel)
- 4 cups chicken or vegetable stock
- 1 medium onion – minced
- 6 cloves garlic – minced
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
- 2 cups whole milk
- To a 7 or 8 quart slow cooker, add potatoes, vegetable stock, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Place lid on cooker. Cook on high for 6 hours or low for 8.
- When potatoes are done, use an immersion blender to blend or "cream" the potatoes making sure not to overprocess. You want to leave some of the potato chunks. Stir in milk. Taste and adjust seasoning. Let soup warm through about 15 minutes after adding milk then serve with toppings.
