Ok, I’m just gonna come right out and say it- don’t let the name put you off. I know. I know.
Breakfast soup? How could this ever be a good thing? How could it ever be a good thing to introduce to your digestive system?
Remember when you were a lil whipper snapper and your Mama or Daddy were all on your case to at least try something before you decided you didn’t like it?
Nothin’s changed. Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it. Trust me. Eat your breakfast, no matter what it is- but especially give it a try if it’s this Slow Cooker Breakfast Soup.
Seriously, you will regret nothing. If you don’t step out on a limb and try it though, well you’ll regret not living your best life.
So this is essentially breakfast soup, and I know that probably sounds very off-putting all by itself. Don’t ignore this recipe though please- at least not because it contains the two words ‘breakfast’ & ‘soup’ in the title.
You can’t beat what we’ve got in store for you! You’re mild horror is going to slowly dissolve into a new saccharine appreciation.
This Slow Cooker Breakfast Soup is easy to throw together. Add the potatoes, tomatoes, and sausage to the bowl of your slow cooker. In a mixing bowl, whisk together chicken broth, minced garlic, and a packet of Hollandaise sauce until the mixture’s smooth and everything’s completely incorporated.
Pour the mixture into the slow cooker, cover, and cook on high for 4 hours. Let that amazing aroma wake the whole house up as the flavors meld & marry. About 30 minutes before the soup’s scheduled to be done, scramble your eggs, and cook your bacon.You want crisp bacon that you can easily crumble for this recipe. I’d recommend using our fool proof, easy clean up oven baked bacon method.
Ladle the soup into bowls and top each bowl with scrambled egg and bacon. The kids like there’s topped with shredded cheddar. As with any soup, you want to serve it with a bit of bread. No juices left behind in bowls around here, after all! I like mine with freshly toasted, crisp sandwich bread. It’s also very good with breakfast biscuits.
You really can’t go wrong with this recipe. I love making it on special mornings (even though it means I have to get up earlier than normal), and having the delicious smells slowly wake everyone up and bring them to the kitchen. It makes for a fantastic brunch, especially Christmas morning.
Don’t want to get up early to get it cooking? Throw this Slow Cooker Breakfast Soup together before getting in bed, but cook it overnight on LOW, and it’ll be ready for you to serve with some freshly scrambled eggs come morning. Not just for holidays, this method makes it an option even on busy weekday mornings.
