    Here are a few of my favorites (love any kind of potato soup!):

    POTATO CHOWDER (Crock Pot)

    8 cups diced potatoes

    1/3 cup chopped onion

    3 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth

    1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted

    1/4 teaspoon pepper

    1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed

    1/2 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled, optional

    Minced chives, optional

    In a 5-qt. slow cooker, combine the first five ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until potatoes are tender. Add cream cheese; stir until blended. Garnish with bacon and chives if desired. Yield: 12 servings (3 quarts).

    Notes: I've used all types of potatoes in this, but love the red ones, and they look so pretty. If you do not have chives, or cannot find them, green onion tops are also excellent.

    Great Poster's Notes: This is one of our family favorites and it is easy to add in corn or ham, whatever your family fancies. We absolutely love it. You can also cut the cook time by softening the potatoes by boiling them then adding them to soup.

    BACON AND POTATO CHOWDER

    35 min | 15 min prep -- Serves 4

    6 slices bacon, very smokey local bacon is better

    1 cup onion, chopped

    1 garlic clove, minced

    3 cups potatoes, diced

    3 cups water

    3 chicken bouillon cubes

    3 tablespoons flour

    1 (354 ml) can evaporated 2% milk

    Fry bacon until crisp, and chop. Drain and use paper towel to soak up excess fat. In a large pot, sautee onion and garlic with 2 tbsp bacon drippings. Add potatoes, water, bouillon cubes to pot. Heat to boiling, then cover and simmer until potatoes are cooked, then add bacon. Mix flour with a small amount of evaporated milk, making a paste. Gradually stir in remaining milk. Add to potato mixture. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Stir often to ensure the soup doesn't burn on the bottom of the pot.

    While this is not a 'chowder' it is a great potato soup!! If you want it more chunky then you can blend it to your liking :) I have done with with the potato pancakes and without. If I don't do the pancakes I serve it with a nice crusty bread.

    Ingredients

    2 tablespoons unsalted butter

    1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onions

    1 teaspoon minced garlic

    1 pound Yellow Finn potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice

    1 teaspoon chopped marjoram

    1 teaspoon salt

    1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

    4 cups chicken stock or vegetable stock

    3/4 cup heavy cream

    2 bunches fresh watercress (or i pkg of baby spinach), well rinsed, tough stems removed, and roughly chopped

    Potato Pancakes, recipe follows

    Directions

    In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic, and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add the potatoes, marjoram, salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the stock and bring to a boil.

    Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Add the watercress and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.

    Remove from the heat and puree with a hand-held immersion blender, or in batches in a food processor or blender. Add the cream and return to medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, adding more cream, if a thinner soup is desired. Adjust seasoning, to taste.

    Drape each potato pancake wedge with 2 teaspoons of sour cream, and place on top of the soup.

    Potato Pancakes:

    1 pound baking potatoes, like russets, peeled

    1/4 cup vegetable oil

    Salt

    Freshly ground black pepper

    Grate the potatoes and squeeze between towels to dry.

    Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Toss the potatoes lightly with salt and pepper and add in batches to the skillet, pressing down with a spatula to form a cake. As the potato cake starts to crust on the bottom, cover, and cook over medium-low heat until brown and crusty on the bottom, about 7 to 10 minutes. Flip the potato cake and add the remaining oil to the pan. Cook until the cake is brown on the second side and cooked through, about 5 minutes.

    Remove from the pan and cut into 6 wedges.
