This easy Crock Pot Potato Soup recipe tastes just like grandmas! Smoky bacon lends an amazing flavor  to this comfort food favorite.



For a long time my mom would talk about my grandmas potato soup recipe. When my grandmother passed away, most of her recipes went with her. All we could go off of was my moms memory.

It took a few tries to get this recipe just right but when she told me it was the closest anyone has been able to get to my grandmas, I knew it was a keeper.

Some of you that have followed my blog from the beginning know that one of my main reasons for starting this blog was to try to recreate those recipes from my Grandmas that were lost with them.

Since I lost them when I was young, I do not really remember those great dishes they made.  I relied on my parents to share that with me. I can in turn pass these "almost" Grandma recipes down to our future generations.

This can be just a little time consuming with all the chopping of the veggies but in the end it is so worth it. Bacon is the key ingredient here and makes this dish over the top.

I have used leftover ham before and it fails in comparison to the bacon.  The bacon lends a great smokey flavor to this soup.  Country ham biscuits are a great side kick to this soup.
