Potato Soup to Swoon Over

In a crockpot, toss:

1 quart chicken stock
1 TBS dried onion
hefty dash red pepper flakes
heftier grind black pepper
liberal dash Lawry's
2 minced garlic cloves
2.5 pounds red potatoes, quartered, skin-on

Cook on high for 2-ish hours. Add half a head worth of broccoli florets. Cook 2 more hours. Add 4 ounces cream cheese. Let it simmer 30 minutes. Add 2 green onions, sliced. Stick your beaters into the crock and beat it till semi-smooth. Or a stick blender would be swell as well. Stir in 1.5 cups minced fresh-outta-the-oven ham. Top with shredded extra-sharp cheddar and sour cream. Win over your friends and family. Compliment yourself with every bite.
