Our poor trick-or-treaters had to brave the 40 degree weather last night. I hope their mommies fixed them something filling and belly-warming like this tasty soup. Because it is a crockpot soup, it can be put together before work or school. It makes a pretty big pot so we will be having left-overs for the next few days.

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

6 large potatoes, peeled and diced
1 large onion, diced
3 (14 oz) cans chicken broth
3 cloves garlic, microplaned
Salt and pepper to taste (Be sure to use quite a bit of salt, think a tsp or two)
1 cup cream

Toppings: sharp cheddar cheese, green onion, sour cream and bacon.

Combine all ingredients; cover and cook in the crockpot on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours (potato should be tender). Mash mixture until potatoes are coarsely chopped and soupy is slightly thickened. Top with desired delights. Serves 8.
