Cheesy Potato Soup is a comfort dish made with Russet potatoes, onion, Velveeta, and garlic topped with crispy bacon pieces, sharp cheddar cheese and chives.



  • 3 pounds Russet potatoes (chopped)
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 5 cups water
  • 4 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 1 small white onion (diced)
  • 16 ounces Velveeta (cubed)


  • ground pepper
  • 6 slices bacon (cooked extra crispy)
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • chives (chopped)


  1. Wash and cube 3 pounds potatoes. We leave the skin on our potatoes but you can peel before dicing. Put into crock-pot.
  2. Dice the onion and put into crock-pot.
  3. Add 5 cups water, 4 bouillon cubes and 2 minced garlic cloves in crock-pot.
  4. Cube the pound of Velveeta cheese and add to crock-pot.
  5. Set crock-pot on low 6 hours.
  6. Stir well and use a potato masher to mash some of the potatoes. Just enough to thicken up the broth.
  7. Stir again and serve with ground pepper, crispy bacon pieces, shredded cheese and chives.
