Ready to make some soup?! In the morning, pour in a box of chicken broth, diced ham, a bag of frozen southern style hash brown, a scoop of frozen onions, and some seasonings into your slow cooker. Set it for 8 hours on LOW. Now you can head off to work, run errands, and get on with your day. Then, when you arrive home all you have to do is blend up some of the soup liquid with cream cheese and stir in some freshly grated cheese. I also love to make some grilled Parmesan garlic bread (in the oven). It goes so good with this soup! I hope you enjoy one of my favorite no-fuss, best crock pot recipes!

Tools used to make this Slow Cooker Ham and Potato Cheese Soup recipe
Crock Pot: I love this crock pot! The lid is very secure and I can pack it up and take it on the go if I’m heading to a potluck. This slow cooker is a workhorse in my kitchen and has worked great for years!
Blender: I love this blender! I use it to make everything from smoothies to soups. It can handle anything I throw at it and the puree comes out smooth.
- 32 ounce bag frozen southern style hash browns
- 1/2 cup yellow onion diced (I use frozen diced onion!)
- 32 ounces chicken broth
- 1 1/2 - 2 cups diced ham
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder not in photo
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 8 ounces low-fat cream cheese
- 8 ounces block sharp cheddar cheese shredded (see note!)
- Bread and butter for serving
- To a 6-quart slow cooker, add the frozen potatoes, onion, chicken broth, ham, garlic powder, thyme, and pepper.
- Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours without opening the lid during the cooking time.
- When the cooking time is up, add the cream cheese to a blender, and scoop some broth and hot potatoes into the blender with the cream cheese, just enough to get the blender moving, cover and blend until smooth.
- Add the cream cheese mixture back into the rest of the soup in the slow cooker. Add the shredded cheese and stir until melted.
- Serve warm with bread and butter.
