Directions:
In a large skillet, sauté onions in butter until tender. Stir in flour. Gradually stir in 1 cup water. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Transfer to the slow cooker. Add the broth, potatoes, potato flakes, bacon, pepper, salt, basil, thyme and remaining water (or I use another cup of broth). Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until the potatoes are tender. Stir in cream, heat through. Garnish with cheese and green onions.

Personal Notes:
At the Jansen family Christmas, this has been my set dish to bring. Of course, I need to (at least) double it. For the vegetarian in the family, I use vegetable broth and save the bacon to put on as a garnish for the meat eaters.
