NOMS: Crockpot Creamy Potato Soup

Recently, I'm really into my crockpot.  I've always loved it, but something about fall just demands crockpot dinners.  That, and not wanting to spend these gorgeous afternoons/evenings inside cooking when I can sit on the deck and read.  

I totally hoarded like 6 bags of sweettart jellybeans at Easter time.

This recipe is a combination of two that I had in my recipe binder.  It's the easiest recipe in the world (aren't all crockpot recipes?) It also tastes like something from a restaurant.  Not gonna lie, it's really, REALLY good.  Especially with a nice crusty bread.  

Whatcha Need:
A bag of frozen homestyle potatoes (or hash browns)
One can condensed cream of chicken soup
Two cans of chicken broth (I used bouillon and filled up the can from the cream of chicken to measure)
1 8oz package of cream cheese
1 cup milk
pepper and onion powder to taste (for me, that means a ton of both)
bacon and shredded cheese

Throw potatoes, condensed chicken soup, chicken broth, pepper and onion powder into the crock pot.
Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.
Add the cream cheese, stir, cook another ~15 mins until it is blended.
Add the milk, stir, cook another 10-15 mins.
Serve nice and hot, sprinkle cheese and bacon on top!  Eat with crusty bread.  Yum yum!
