Hi friends and welcome to another Tasty Tuesday! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Today was one of those beautiful warm, breezy November days. Almost 80. Tonight however, the arctic air is heading our way in a big way. With lows in the teens and possible snow headed for us, what's a girl to do but cancel all her plans and spend the day outside as much as possible. As I drove home tonight I laughed at all the kids I saw playing outside and felt like rolling my window down offering my own little PSA to enjoy it while they could.
How else to prepare?? I get my soup on. Ya'll I'm a soup girl at heart. It's such a comfort food for me and I'm fairly sure it's one of my main love languages. Put it in a crockpot for simplicity sake and I will love it for life.
This soup today is one of my absolute favorites. As I slurped this down under a cozy blanket I asked the Mr how strange it would be to eat this soup for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'm not sure how this one went under the blog radar, it's been a long time favorite and I can't believe it hasn't made it's way here before now. However here it is…
30 oz. bag frozen, diced hash browns
3-14 oz. cans chicken broth
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 onion, chopped (or 1 small)
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 stalks celery, chopped (optional)
bacon drippings to taste (optional)
8 oz. cream cheese (do NOT use fat free as it will not melt)
In a crockpot combine everything EXCEPT the cream cheese
Let this cook for 6-8 hours on low.
About 1 hour before you're ready to serve, add the cream cheese.
Leave this on low and let it continue for about another hour, or until the cream cheese is completely melted and incorporated into the soup. Sometimes I have to help it out a bit by "smushing" it with the back of a spoon.
Serve with cheese, chopped green onions, or bacon bits!!
