Cheesy Crock Pot Potato Soup Recipe

This recipe is super easy and all done in the slow cooker! Simply, put it on in the mornings and by evening, you have a yummy creamy soup to come home to! I love mine with a crusty buttered piece of french bread, but it is equally good with crackers. For those that want a more rounded meal, serve it with a side salad and/or fruit.
