Baked Potato Chowder

Another Pinterest WIN for ya'll!  This recipe was super easy! It comes from the Mama Loves Food blog. I didn't tweak it at all...except for the name.  I think "chowder" is more appropriate than "soup".  It was perfect all the way around!  And the majority of the household enjoyed it! 

Baked Potato Chowder

5 pounds russet potatoes, washed and unpeeled.  (Diced into 1/2 inch cubes)
1 medium yellow onion, diced (I diced it into itsy bitsy pieces...hubby doesn't like onion chunks in his food) 
5 teaspoons minced garlic (10 cloves)
8 cups chicken broth (I use instant broth powder from our local Amish bulk store)
16 oz. cream cheese, softened (2 blocks)
1 T. seasoned salt
crumbled bacon, shredded cheese

Throw potatoes, onion, garlic, seasoning salt and chicken broth in a large crock pot.  Cook on high for about 4 hours (until potatoes are soft).  Take out half the potatoes and blend in a blender with the cream cheese, add to the rest of the potatoes/broth mixture.  (Or you can use an stick blender to blend about half of it.)  I did this process and then put the crock pot on warm until dinner..about three hours.  We topped it with cheddar cheese and crumbled bacon.  It served the 11 of us very well (most had seconds, some thirds) and there's a bit left for a few bowls tomorrow for lunch.  It was deelish! Enjoy!
