I made this in a crock pot on Christmas Eve. I sauteed the veggies first then threw everything int he crock pot for about 2 hours. I used fresh thyme and parsley instead of dried and I added more broth & cream to make bigger servings..... it came out REALLY good...........Lobster Bisque
simply made with love: Easy Crockpot Potato Soup Modification to recipe...I added half a cup of 2% milk, half a package of ranch dip seasoning mix and the whole package of real bacon bits. SOOO GOOD!!!
