Bob's Crock Pot Potato Soup
I made this from scratch, making up the recipe as I went along. It came out very good, so I thought I'd try to write it down.
2-3 cups of meat. I used leftover frozen turkey pieces from Christmas, but chicken, brats, sausage etc,. would work I think.
1 cup chopped onions.
1 Tablespoon dried chives
1 Tablespoon dried parsley
1 Tablespoon powdered garlic
2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups cold milk
4 Tablespoons powders chicken gravy mix
2 cups chicken broth.
Put the meat and onions in the crock pot. Cut any bad spots out of the potatoes, and cut into chucks. Add potatoes to the crock pot until full.
Add the spices.
Dissolve the gravy mix (I think flour would work okay) in the cold milk and pour over potatoes. Then add the chicken broth.
Cook on high 4 hours or until the potatoes are done but not mushy.
Add salt to taste to individual servings.
