WELCOME

Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

HOOSIER POTATO SOUP

This is a recipe from one of my old school classmates!  We went to school together from the 1st through 12th grades in a small Indiana country school.

several potatoes
water
chopped onion
2 cups cream or evaporated milk
2 tbsp butter
salt and pepper to taste
smoked sausage
Shredded cheese for garnish, if desired

Boil potatoes still in jackets in enough water to cover well.  Remove from the water and cut up.  While still firm, mash about half of the potatoes and return to the cooking water along with the chopped onion.  Add the cream or milk, butter, salt, and pepper.  Add the remaining cut up potatoes.  Place mixture in a crockpot or slow cooker.

Cook the sausage and drain.  Cut sausage into bite-size pieces and add to the soup.  You may add other veggies such as celery and or diced carrots, if desired.

Place lid on cooker and cook for 1 to 2 hours on high or on low about 4 hours.

Sprinkle with cheese when serving, if desired.
