  • 2 pounds red potatoes, peeled and cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 64 oz vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese


  • Place potatoes, carrots, onion, broth, thyme, garlic, bay leaves, salt and pepper in the Crock Pot and cover.
  • Cook on low 6-8 hours or high 3-4 hours or until the vegetables are tender. Remove the bay leaves.
  • Stir in the milk and cook on high for another 15 minutes.
  • Turn off heat, remove cover and let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Stir in cheese until melted.


The cheese melts better the higher fat content. I recommend using half 2% cheese and half regular for reduced calories. For best melting use regular cheese.
