This is the second or third time I've made this soup now. Here's what I'm doing differently. I only use half of the recommended potatoes with all of the liquid plus an extra cup of milk. I skip the bacon (don't like bacon) and add lots and lots of extra cheese. You may add even more milk or chicken stock. Good flavour though!

This recipe turned out okay, but as in any slow cooker recipe I should have remembered to add the milk at the very end. I got curdled soup. Over all it tasted okay, just looked like cottage cheese. And I added more spices, like tabasco squeez'ins (the left over pulp from making tabaco sauce), to give it some zip.

I loved this recipe. My husband thought it was a little "grainy" and thick. It was almost like cheesy mashed potatoes...but the flavor was delicious. I would definitely make it again, but factor in more liquid.
