Slow Cooker Potato Soup
I like the slow cooker for soups like this, even though you don’t leave this one unattended for hours, it’s great in the crock-pot because you don’t have to stand over a hot stove for a long time. And, there’s no worry about the soup burning.
Notes about this Meatball Soup recipe
Any small baby potatoes will work for this recipes.
I used a mixture of different potatoes, like reds, Yukon Golds, and purple potatoes. Fingerlings will also work.
You want the potatoes to be small, about 2 inches in size. If you can’t find baby potatoes, you could cut larger potatoes into smaller pieces, but they will mush a bit in the soup; the baby potatoes hold their shape nicely because of their peels.
This soup can also be made on the stove top. Just follow the directions, and cut the cooking time down for each step. Check the doneness of the veggies, and the potatoes as they cook.
