Crock-Pot Potato-Cheese Soup Recipe
8 potatos, cubed
1 tbsp chives, chopped
1 1/2 cup chopped celery
1/3 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp celery seed
1 tsp savory
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
2 tbsp flour
2 tbsp butter
2 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
Place potatoes, chives, celery, parsley, onion, paprika, celery seed,
savory and salt in a slow cooker and add just enough water to barely
cover. Cook on high one hour. Turn heat to low and cook 4-5 hours or
until potatoes are done. Combine milk and flour in a tightly covered
jar and shake to blend evenly. In a small saucepan, melt butter over
medium heat. Add flour mixture slowly, and stir constantly 3-4
minutes. Add cheese; stir until melted. Turn crock-pot to high
setting. Add cheese mixture to soup and cook until slightly
thickened. Serve hot in bowls and garnish with chives, sour cream or
bacon bits. From: Sharon Stevens Date: 10 Sep 94
