Slow Cooker Saturday: Clean Eating Potato and Bacon Soup



Why just make potato soup when you can make it BACON and potato soup! Although,t he soup becomes more about the bacon than the potato, but I think that's the whole point when you add bacon to anything. :)

I've made potato soup before, but I've never added bacon into the mix. I bet that tastes really good...bacon adds that extra bit of flavor.

This looks so creamy. I never thought of blending my potato soup to make it creamy. I would save some of the potatoes to make it chunky
