Crockpot Potato Soup

We tried a new potato soup last night.  I wasn't sure how well it might be received, since it has bacon for flavor and garnish, but isn't a really meaty soup.  I was pleasantly surprised though!  We both really liked it.  I found the recipe here, but made just a few changes and don't want to forget what I did.

Bag of frozen hashbrowns - cubed, not shredded
4 cups water
4 teaspoons Jamison soup stock
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
8 oz reduced fat cream of cheese
1 tablespoon bacon grease
Bacon, crumbled
Shredded sharp cheddar
Green onion

Combine the first 6 ingredients and cook on low for 5 hours.  Add cream cheese and bacon grease and continue to cook for another 30 minutes.  Serve with bacon, cheddar cheese, and green onion.

I already had a bag of hashbrowns, but we thought it would also be good with fresh potatoes if you'd like larger chunks of potato.

We use the crockpot ALL Winter. I am going to try this one. It seems even easy enough for me!
