Comfort Food at It's Best Slow Cooker Loaded Potato Soup

A very favorite comfort food of mine is potato soup.  Potato Soup and hot bread is food for the soul or mine anyway. This soup is warm and hearty.  It will stick to your bones and give you something to hang on to for a bit.  When I am ill this is the food I am wanting. My favorite way to have it is in a warm bread bowl .  Yum!  My second favorite way is with big yeast rolls and butter. Yum Yum!  This potato soup recipe is perfect to throw in the slow cooker and come home to after a long afternoon at work. Enjoy!
