This is another favorite soup recipe that is both convenient and simple to make, yet so comforting to eat. There are many different potato soup recipes out there, but I keep coming back to this one. The use of frozen hash browns makes prep super simple and as I have said before the crock pot is my best friend so I enjoy not having to labor over the stove. Add in bacon, green onions, and more cheese and I am in potato heaven!
