I like to use russet potatoes, but you can use any potatoes you like. You can also leave the skin on the potatoes if you prefer.

🥓Soup Topping Ideas

  • Crumbled Bacon
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Green Onions
  • Croutons
  • Fresh Dill
  • Parsley
  • Sour Cream or Plain Greek Yogurt

How to Store Leftovers

Leftovers can be stored tightly covered and sealed in the fridge for 3-4 days.

How to Reheat

Reheat in the microwave or in a pot on the stove until warm.

Freezer Tips

I love to freeze soup using these freezer molds from Amazon. Because the soup contains dairy, you will notice separation when you reheat it. This does not bother me, because it tastes the same. 

If this bothers you, save the dairy ingredients (do not add them when prepping the soup) for when you reheat the soup. Don’t add it during the cooking steps.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes Peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes.
  • 5 slices bacon Cooked and crumbled.
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 2-3 garlic cloves Minced
  • 3-4 cups broth Any broth will work. Use enough to cover the potatoes.
  • Ranch Seasoning to taste Taste repeatedly and adjust.
  • salt and pepper to taste Taste repeatedly and adjust.
  • 1/2 cup half and half or heavy whipping cream Either will work.
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt

Instructions

Slow Cooker Soup

  • Add the potatoes, celery, carrots, onions, garlic, bacon, broth, ranch seasoning, salt, and pepper to taste to the slow cooker. Stir.
  • Cook on High for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-7 hours.
  • Open the pot and add the sour cream (or Greek yogurt) and half and half (or heavy cream).
  • Stir until the soup thickens.
  • Cool before serving.

Instant Pot Instructions

  • Add the potatoes, celery, carrots, onions, garlic, bacon, broth, ranch seasoning, salt, and pepper to taste to the Instant Pot. Stir.
  • Cook for 10 minutes on Manual > High-Pressure Cooking.
  • When the pot indicates it has finished, quick release the steam. Open the pot and add the sour cream (or Greek yogurt) and half and half (or heavy cream).
  • Stir until the soup thickens.
  • Cool before serving.

Notes

Use 3 cups of broth for thick soup, use more/add more broth to thin out overly thick soup.
The dairy in the recipe can be omitted if you want a dairy free version.
I typically use a couple of teaspoons of my Homemade Ranch Seasoning. Add the ranch seasoning to taste to ensure the ranch flavor suit your taste and does not overpower the soup.
For a creamy soup without the potato chunks, feel free to puree it with an immersion blender or high powered blender once cooked.
If you prefer to cook the soup on the stove, follow the instructions noted above and simmer the soup until the potatoes have softened. Then add the sour cream (or Greek yogurt) and half and half (or heavy whipping cream).

I made this soup for dinner and all I can say is wow! Do not skip the homemade ranch seasoning not only was it easy to make but I already had the ingredients on hand. The flavors came together beautifully. I did skip the carrots and optional ingredients to thicken the soup and it still tasted wonderful.
