Loaded baked potato soup on twothirtyate.com

One of the best feelings is when I walk through the front door of my tiny little apartment and the scent of dinner wafts toward me. It is for this reason that I really do love my slow cooker. Whoever invented this compact appliance that prepares dinner while I toil away at work should really have some sort of holiday in their name.

This soup is particularly delicious made in a slow cooker. Inspired by a fully loaded baked potato, it’s hearty and delicious. You could probably add some broccoli florettes while it cooks for a little healthy aspect or some crispy, crumbled bacon to top it off, but I think it’s kind of perfect the way it is.
