RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- I've had a lot of requests for easy crock pot recipes and with colder temps expected tomorrow, I thought I'd break out the first recipe I ever posted online. It was given to me by a co-worker in Pittsburgh at WTAE. Plus, with grocery prices through the roof, and no relief in sight, it's easy on the wallet. Let's make some crock pot potato soup!


1/2 stick, margarine or butter

4 chicken bouillon cubes

1/4 t pepper t salt (can be omitted if you are watching sodium)

1 T parsley

3 pounds of potatoes, diced & peeled

5 cups water

1/2 onion, sliced

1/2 cup carrots, chopped

12oz. Can evaporated milk

8 oz cheddar and/or Colby, grated


1. Put all ingredients, except milk and cheese, into slow cooker and cook for 7-8 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high (or until veggies are tender).

2. Stir in milk and cheese 15-30 minutes prior to serving.

3. Stir and Enjoy!

That is it! I made the entire thing for 12 bucks! If you top it off with bacon bits and oyster crackers like I did in the video, it pushes it up to $17. And it tastes pretty doggone good too...
