Crock Pot Potato Soup

Crock Pot Potato Soup is a great comfort food.

I have been using my Crock Pot so much lately…Using the slow cooker for recipes during the Summer is such a great way to keep the house from getting too hot. Let’s face it, the oven is great but it puts off way too much heat when it’s 100+ degrees outside.

This recipe is great for Summer since it utilizes the slow cooker and perfect for winter because it’s a delicious, hearty soup!

Since it’s Paula Deen’s recipe, we all know it’s going to be comfort food to the max! Creamy, rich and delicious it is…..hello, there’s cream cheese in it!!  😀


If you don’t have a crock pot yet or need to get a new one, you can get one on Amazon here for $29.92 (Reg. $49.99) + FREE shipping!

Crock Pot Potato Soup


  1. Wow this looks amazing!!! Where did you get the crock pot from, and can I do this without one? Thanx. 😉

    • Sarah Gibbons says

      Hi Gaby!! I bet you could do it on the stove…maybe just cover with a lid and put on medium? If you don’t have a crock pot yet or need to get a new one, you can get one on Amazon for $29.92 (Reg. $49.99) + FREE shipping! Here is the link:

  2. Okay, there is something fishy going on here! NO, really this would be a wonderful dish to serve with fish, but that’s not what I am talking about. IF I put cream cheese in at the end….do you know what will happen to me? It wont happen to all the amazing blessed cooks out there but just me. THAT cream cheese will not melt and I will try to force it to blend resulting in little strong tastes of globs of cream cheese. Yes and it will ruin my whole business in the crockpot. I can see it now like so many times before…tiny white dots all in my soup. What can THIS girl do to be a real cook? Huh? Tell me that?

    • I bet if you take the room temp cream cheese and, using an immersion blender, blend it with a few ladles of the soup in a separate container, and THEN add it back into the crockpot, it will work just fine!

      • That’s what I do. I try to get mostly the broth from off the top of the soup, about two cups, and just whisk it together in a bowl and add it back into the crockpot. This soup is amazing

    • Cut the cream cheese into cubes b4 u add it.

    • The only cream cheese that won’t melt, is low fat, reduced, lite……real cream cheese will melt..

    • Don’t feel like you’re alone! I used real Philadelphia Cream Cheese and it wouldn’t melt either. Just tonight. What are we doing wrong?

    • Anytime you work with cream cheese let it set out at room temp overnight and you won’t have the lump problem.

    • We don’t like the flavor of cream cheese. I add 3 cups of cream the last hour and it’s delicious!

    • It would work out fine if you added The cream cheese in the beginning, too. 😉

    • I’ve made this and its CRAP. I followed the recipe to a T. It does not turn out anything close to what the pictures show. It’s lumpy and gross. Don’t waste your time.

  3. LOVED this recipe! I made a few adjustments. My daughter has celiac so I substituted gluten free cream of chicken soup. I used the shredded frozen hash browns. I added a lot more ground black pepper, plus I added onion powder and garlic powder (I like a lot of flavor). Finally, I skipped the shredded cheese entirely – not in the soup or on it. My two picky daughters both loved it. I served it with hot bred (gluten free, of course!)…and dinner was served. I love easy recipes like this. Thanks!

  4. My crockpot only has high/low settings, as well. Should I do it on low for 6-8 hours?

  5. Susan Freemyer says

    This was a keeper in my house. I made it on the stove instead of the crock pot. I think it would be great with some small chopped chicken added to it. Best potato soup I’ve ever had!

    • We have added chicken and ham, and both were good, but our favorite is cooked bacon. This is the only soup my finicky family requests!

  6. Strange, I can’t find this recipe anywhere on Paula Deen’s website. Are you sure it came from her? Just don’t want it being falsely presented as her recipe, if it is not. However it does sound delicious and I intend to try it.

  7. Amazing soup! Easy. Didn’t use onions and substituted onion powder. Both kids (5 and 16) ate it and that NEVER happens. Will make again (maybe this weekend)!!

  8. No potatoes in this soup?

  9. Jean McDaniel says

    I make a cream corn recipe and the cream cheese will melt. I mix up the recipe and then I lay the whole block of cream cheese on top. Don’t stir the soup until the very end and the cream cheese will just disappear. I do need to say though you will think it’s not melted when you look through the glass lid, but it is. Just don’t use low fat.

  10. What about raw chopped potatoes? I’ve got a 5lb bag to use… Think it might work?

  11. Cannot wait to try this this weekend. It’s cold here in Michigan and this will warm my wife and I up! I’ll play a little with the ingredients like always…I’ll let you know!

  12. Do you dilute the cream of chicken soup?

  13. what happens if i accidently added the cream cheese at the beginning of the process? I was in a hurry and just threw it all in this morning not even paying attention to the fact that the cream cheese was to be added to last hour of cooking.

  14. This is a good recipe .. I was scared at first about the cream cheese so I left it out while the soup was cooking.. So 30 min before eating I put the crock pot on low cut up the mushy cream cheese an I added bacon bites the Kroger brand an a lil garlic powder, it turned out great so much everyone ate it all up… Good easy meal…

  15. What size pkg cream cheese ??????? 8 oz ??? 3 oz ????

  16. For the cream cheese – I chop it into about 8 squares – put it in my glass measuring pitcher – place it in the microwave at 30% power for 1 minute – stir it – pour it in the soup and stir it in – perfect! I also added cooked bacon, onion and garlic powder and a little sea salt to taste. I used Campbell’s cheddar cheese soup instead of the cream of chicken too – to get a cheesier vibe and a dollop of sour cream and chives on top with a little shredded cheddar – Awesome!!!

  17. How many servings does this make?

  18. Will shredded hash browns work? It’s absolutely all the store had & my kids have been begging for this soup!
    If no one else knows… we will soon find out… *eeep*

  19. how many servings does this recipe make?

  20. Can I cook this soup on high? and for how long? I only have about three hours after work so I am trying to find a good soup to make in that amount of time!

  21. I was so excited to find a Paula Deen recipe, especially for potato soup. I was very surprised when it was the soup recipe I already use! I add ham or bacon to mine to cook, plus I usually double the cheese. I throw cheese in while it’s cooking and then throw more on top. It’s a wonderful meal to come home to after a day at work… just don’t wreck your car on the way home (potatoes turn to mush after so long).

  22. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something regarding this.|

  23. No flavor. Will not make it again. Sorry.

  24. This can’t be a Paula Deen recipe! There’s no butter! Lol, it looks delish and I’ll be making it soon.

    SLAMMIN!!! A KEEPER, thank you.

  27. How many servings did it make?

  28. Doubled this recipe and added a Hidden Valley Ranch Mix packet and a package of Hormel real bacon bits.. turned out delishious!

  29. I make this all the time put I add bacon, chopped celery, and chopped green onion, and instead of cream cheese I use a cup of sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese and I use the garlic and herb flavored cream of chicken soup from Campbell’s. gives it wonderful flavor.

  30. Made this on a below zero day❄was very creamy and cheesy

  31. Ok, couple of things…..1. This only makes half of a crock pot. I was having guests and decided I better make another crock pot. Last minute shopping meant a Dollar Store run. They didn’t have hash browns, so I bought a bag of tater tots. Figured after the liquid & several hours in the pot, they would break up, which leads me to #2….THE TATER TOT VERSION WAS BETTER! The hash brown version came out like mushy mashed potatoes. The tater tot version was like soup with some pieces of potato in it. I also added half a stick of butter, and we topped with cheese & cooked pieces of bacon. My family loved the tater tot version better!

  32. Is there a way I could make this in my power cooker
