Make Ahead Monday Recipe!

I will be making Creamy Potato Soup in my crock pot on Monday. After dinner my family will give a review of how they liked or disliked it. Below is the recipe.

Creamy Potato Soup

6 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 onion, finely chopped
2 (10.5 oz.) cans condensed chicken broth
2 cups of water
5 large potatoes, diced
1/2 teas. salt
1/2 teas. pepper
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups half-and-half cream
1 (12 fluid oz.) can evaporated milk

Place bacon and onion in a large skillet.  Cook over medium heat until bacon is browned and onions are soft.  Drain off excess grease.

Pour bacon and onion mixture into slow cooker, add chicken broth, water, potatoes, salt and pepper.  Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 7 hours.

(The last 30 minutes of cooking) In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and half-and-half.  Stir into the soup along with the evaporated milk.  Cover and cook another 30 minutes before serving.

I invite all of you to join me on MAKE AHEAD MONDAY and make this crock pot meal and have your family review and rate it. Then post your review in the comments of my review post. My family loves rating the meal. Get your family involved they will love reviewing it with you.

I am always looking for a new recipe to try. So, any of my followers who join in the fun, post a review with a photo of the meal can send me a recipe to try. When we try your recipe I will mentioned your blog, a brief description of your blog and a link to your blog. If you don't have a blog and you join in on the fun, I will just post your first name and last initial.

Hope to see you in the kitchen tomorrow!
