I make this recipe all winter…it is super easy and is potato soup (hence the name) and so yummy.

Easy Potato Soup:

1.   Gather the ingredients:

Potatoes
Onions
Salt
Pepper
Milk
Baked potato toppings

I figure for every two people I am serving I use one very large potato. I use an onion for every 3 large potatoes.

2. Peel the potatoes and cut into pieces.
3. Prepare the onions and chop. The pieces do not have to be small since you will be blending later.
4. Put the potatoes and onions into large pot and cover with water.
5. Cook on stove until all are tender “you can’t really over cook  at this point.   It is very forgiving!

6. Blend the onion-potato mixture in a food processor or blender. Add milk or cream as needed to get the desired consistency.

7. Return the blended soup to the pot on low heat and season with salt and pepper to taste. Obviously you can add other spices at this point if you desire.

8. Add additional milk or cream as needed for creaminess and consistency. I find if your potatoes are really, really soft it reduces the necessity for cream and ends up quite creamy.

9. Serve! I like to add a topping bar with bacon, shredded cheese, chives, sour cream and anything else that tastes yummy on baked potatoes.

  3. I’m sooo going to try this. I love potato soup. It’s one of my favorite things. Once the weather gets colder I make it a lot! (Carrot soup is really good too, believe it or not).

  4. Love to try every potato soup recipe so when it cools off this will be in the making! Nothing better on a cool day.

    Stopping from Mom Loop! This looks wonderful. I love the strip of bacon you added. This will be perfect for cold weather.

  6. I sooooo would’ve gone for this back in the day. I got an aversion to potato soup when I was preggo w/ the twins, and so far it STILL hasn’t lifted. Maybe one day….

  7. I made potato soup a few weeks ago and I always end up adding golden potatoes for about 20 minutes after I’m done blending and all. I like the chunky potato pieces in mine. =)

  8. You might try adding broccoli to it sometime. It is very yummy that way! Our potato soup is similar, but has cream of mushroom in it for broth and the potatoes are chunks. 🙂

  9. We love blended veggie soups too. I’m too lazy to put the veggies into my blender. Have you ever tried a hand blender directly in the pot? So much easier! I also like to use chicken stock instead of water to steam the veggies. Can you tell we eat a lot of soup?
