Fry's Bargain Meal of the Week - new crock pot recipe

Tonight, I had the chance to try a wonderful new recipe - and you can too thanks to the great sales at Fry's this week! Almost every ingredient for this great dish is on sale at Fry's stores this week! And, it is a crock pot recipe so it will provide you a quick way to toss dinner together and let your crock pot slave away for you all day, making dinner time a snap!

Crock Pot Baked Potato Soup
great served with your favorite bread or rolls

Ingredients on Sale for this Meal:
10 lb. bag Kroger potatoes - $2.57
(you will only need half the bag - save the other half for meal #2 coming tomorrow!)
Kroger cream cheese - 8 oz. package - 99 cents (pick up 2 packages)
Farmer John bacon - 12 oz. - 99 cents

Recipe Tips:

I did not have the chance to put this soup together until mid-afternoon but was so anxious to try it that I couldn't put it off until tomorrow. To speed up cooking time, I used my food processor to shred the potatoes instead of cutting them all into cubes. This made the potatoes cook quickly and our soup was still ready for dinner (with cooking on high). The whole family loved this recipe, served with homemade rolls.

We only used half of the package of bacon for garnishing our bowls so the other half package is chopped and ready for breakfast scramble or burritos tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by - please be sure to check in for more great bargain meal ideas using current grocery ads throughout each sales week!
