  1. Do you have a recipe that has a lot less sodium in it? This looks delicious but I am on a sodium restricted diet.

    2. I think the hasbrown idea is a great change. I like regular potatoes as well. Must we be such asses?

  3. Can’t wait to try this one!! I use hash browns whenever I make baked potato soup, so easy. But I’ve never used ranch and cream cheese. Yum Num!! Thank you for all the work and ideas!!

  5. Just made this tonight, it was amazing!

    I used low sodium chicken broth, and substituted neufchâtel cheese for the cream cheese for a bit less fat. It came out great. We also topped ours with green onions.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  6. IS there a way to half the recipe? THis looks delicious, but would be way too much for my family of 4.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sure - the only way I know to half the recipe is to use half of each ingredient. You can also freeze the leftovers for later if you make the whole thing.

    2. My family of 2 ate it for 3 days. Leftovers are great!

    1. Converting the original numbers you'd use: Half a bag of hash browns (approximately 15-16 oz), 1 1/2 cans chicken broth, 1/2 can Cream of Chicken soup, 1/2 packet Hidden Valley dressing mix, 1/2 lb. bacon, 1/2 package (4 oz.) cream cheese, and 1 cup of shredded cheese.

  10. I have a phobia of using ranch mix in recipes for fear of it tasting really “ranchy”. Can you really taste the ranch or is it subtle?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It definitely isn’t an overwhelming Ranch flavor - it is a little ranch and a whole lotta other stuff. I think you’ll be fine

      Delete
    2. It's a subtle taste. I totally forgot it was even in the soup until I read your comment.

  12. Do you cook the bacon first? My husband and I are having a debate about it.

    Replies
    1. Yes - it is 1 pound of bacon, cooked and chopped

  13. Can you use the Oscar Myer bacon pieces? I’m trying to make this before I leave for work and I won’t have time to cook bacon. Will it have a different affect on the out come?

    1. It will be fine with the precooked Oscar Mayer bacon pieces/bits. Enjoy!

  14. Can you use bacon pieces? I’m trying to make this before I leave for work and won’t have time to cook bacon. Will this affect the outcome?

    1. Yes - it will be just fine with the precooked bacon pieces.

  15. Can you make this in a regular pot, not a slow cooker?

    Replies
    1. Sure - not sure how long it would take since I haven't made it on the stove.

  16. I bought the cubed hash browns instead of shredded, will this be ok to use?

    1. I think it should be fine. Probably only a little chunkier

    2. I have it cooking now!! Cant wait to try it!

  17. My husband is gluten free. Can I eliminate the cream of chicken soup?

    1. I haven’t made this without the soup. I think it needs it.

  18. Can broccoli also be added to this recipe?

  19. When using bacon in recipes such as this one, I use pre-cooked bacon (Aldi's brand is our fave), cut it into desired pieces and add to crock pot. Tastes awesome, saves time, and no one's the wiser. I'm debating with myself to use the tater tots I already have...or put this off a day and get some hash browns. If this is my biggest dilemma tomorrow...yay! LOL

    1. I usually use the Oscar Mayer or Costco pre-cooked bacon. We just had an Aldi's open - I'll have to check their brand out!!

      Delete
    2. How many packages of pre-cooked did you use? And do you microwave it beforehand or just add it? Thanks!

      Delete
    3. I originally used a full 16 oz of the costco pre-cooked bacon bits. It was too salty. I'll use less next time. Although it could also have been the sharp cheddar that made it extra salty as well.

  20. What is your recommendation for reheating after freezing??? How should I reheat the soup?

    1. I do it on the stove and add a little chicken broth if it is too thick.

  21. My husband is taking this to work she he add in the cheeses on his own?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Is he taking the whole crock pot or just a serving? If it is just a serving, add the cheese at home. If he is taking the whole pot to work, sure. Just add the cheese before serving.

  22. Have you ever done this with an instant pot? I want to eat it tonight but I only have 2-3 hours.

    1. I haven't tried this in the instant pot yet. I'm sure it can be done. I just haven't tested it out yet.

      Delete
    2. Did you make it in the instant pot? I'm about to try it and wondering cook times.

      Delete
  23. Do you think I could use the potato pieces (little potato chunks) that are also frozen? They are right next to the frozen hash browns.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Not sure if this posted already but can I use the frozen potato chunks? Found next to the frozen hash browns. Or would the hash browns be better?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I always use the shredded hash browns - they break up nicely as the soup cooks. You can try the potato chunks if that is all you have on hand. My guess is that it will just be chunkier soup and not as smooth.

      Delete
    2. I used the frozen cubed potatoes. It was great!

      Delete
  25. How long would you cook it if the hash browns are just refrigerated and not frozen?

    ReplyDelete
  26. In the crockpot now! Will this thicken up a lot with the addition of the cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese?
