Back to my handy dandy crockpot! I told you I LOVE this thing! Again, as a new mom, and an Army Sergeant; I don’t like to spend my time at home slaving over a hot stove, so the crockpot is a simple, fast and easy solution. Now I personally LOVE a warm and creamy soup especially in the winter! And this recipe is topped with bacon (although not mandatory) so in my book its an instant winner! This meal had so much delicious flavor, and the potatoes just melted in your mouth. Ahh I may have to go back to the store tonight!
OK…sorry I will stop drooling and continue. This meal creates a TON of soup. At first my husband and I didn’t know what to do, but then the website claims it freezes perfectly! Hmmm…a delicious meal, that I can freeze! I can barely contain myself. Chop, and dump all ingredients minus the cream cheese. This bad boy takes 6 hours in the crockpot so start early! Once time is up you add the cream cheese allow to melt, garnish and ENJOY!
Now if you are like me…The idea of 16 ounces of cream cheese could be a turn off…please give it a try! I couldn’t even taste the cream cheese, but it definitely provided a creaminess that was needed.
Regardless on size of your family ,take your leftovers and freeze them in individual containers that way you can grab perfect portion sizes anytime! Did you try it? Could you taste the cream cheese? What garnishes did you choose? Show me your masterpieces!
