I originally found this recipe on Pinterest and we really enjoyed it. I printed it out, but can't find the reference to the website where it came from. Anyhow, it is easy and delicious and I hope your family enjoys it as well!
5 lbs potatoes, washed put not peeled, then cubed
1 medium onion, diced
fresh garlic (to taste, I used 1 T of minced garlic from a jar)
8 C chicken stock (I used 8t low sodium better than chicken bullion & 8 C water)
1 T seasoned salt or all purpose seasoning
Add 15 min before serving: 16 oz cream cheese (I used all 1/3 less fat cream cheese/Neufchatel)
Garnishes (if desired): cheddar cheese, chives, bacon
Add all ingredients, EXCEPT cream cheese, to crockpot.
Cook on high for 6 hours or low for 10 hours.
Remove and puree 1/3 soup with cream cheese (or use immersion blender, to blend to desired smoothness).
Let soup warm up for 15 more minutes.
Top with garnishes if desired and enjoy!
