Slow Cooker Loaded Potato Soup

No ratings yet

Everything you love about a loaded baked potato with fewer calories and in a slow cooker.

Loaded Potato Soup is an all-time favorite comfort food! Our Slow Cooker Loaded Potato Soup puts everything you love about a loaded baked potato into a slow cooker. Since it’s a SkinnyMs. recipe, we used turkey bacon, low-fat cheeses, and Greek yogurt in place of heavy cream.

The only thing you cook outside of the slow cooker is the bacon, so it’s easy to prep and clean up. You can even prep a batch of bacon ahead of time for other meals, in addition to the soup. This loaded soup makes a hearty meal in and of itself, but you could serve it with a wheat roll or crusty bread. Trust us, you’ll want something to help you sop up every last bit of creamy, delicious broth.
