Crockpot Cheesy Potato Soup
What better way to warm up on a cold rainy day than with a bowl of Grandpa’s Cheesy Potato Soup? The Ohio Cheddar could easily be swapped out for any combination of Grandpa’s premi-yum cheeses for a new twist on an old favorite!

- 1 medium onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoons salt

- Add the potatoes, onion, garlic, salt, pepper and the chicken broth to a 4 quart or larger crockpot stir and cook on high for about 3 ½ hours on high OR 6-8 hours on low, until potatoes are completely cooked.
