Creamy Potato Soup

Creamy Potato Soup

 

I’ve made a lot of potato soup over the years but I must say this Creamy Potato Soup that I made a couple of weeks ago is my absolute favorite. It’s deliciously creamy with tender yet firm potatoes. We loved it topped with crumbled bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, and sliced green onions, and we also loved it plain without toppings. I thought it would be tasty sprinkled with croutons but haven’t tried it that way yet.

With all of the cool fall and cold winter days ahead, I’ll surely be making this a few times over the next several months.

Ingredients

  • 2 quarts water, for boiling potatoes
  • 8 potatoes, diced {peeled or unpeeled}
  • 34 ounces chicken stock {I used 2 containers of the Kirkland Signature Chicken Stock}
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 small onion, pureed or finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup butter
  • toppings:
  • shredded cheese
  • bacon
  • green onion
  • croutons

Directions

  1. Boil the potatoes for 8-10 minutes, or until tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large pot, add the broth, onions, salt, pepper, and water. Let it simmer on medium low until the onions are tender.
  3. In the pan used for boiling the potatoes, melt the butter. Whisk in the flour and let it simmer for 1-2 minutes. Add the heavy cream slowly, stirring and cooking on medium low until it's well blended and thickened a bit.
  4. Add the creamy sauce to the broth and stir well to combine. Let it simmer for 20 minutes.
  5. Add the potatoes.
  6. Serve with your choice of toppings and enjoy!

Apple Cobbler Crisp

  Yesterday I shared Peach Cobbler Crisp, which happens to be one of my fall favorite recipes. This Apple Cobbler Crisp is another favorite. It’s made the same way but with an apple filling that is cinnamony delicious ~ warm or cold. I know there are certain apples that are better for baking desserts such as […]

Peach Cobbler Crisp

Is there anything better than a warm peach cobbler served up with vanilla ice cream?  I live for fall peaches. This Peach Cobbler Crisp is an old favorite.  And it’s so easy to make.  I love that the crust just kind of creates itself after melting the butter in the pan and adding on everything […]

Bobby’s Favorite Goulash

OK.  So I know I’m dropping Bobby Deen’s name like I know him and he gave me this recipe personally.  But this is his recipe by the same name, which I wanted to change but just plain ole goulash sounded so… well, plain, and I didn’t know what else to name it so I left […]

Cashew Triangles

A little bit salty.  A little bit sweet.  The perfect combo. These cashew triangles are a shortbread type bar with nuts pressed on the top before baking and then drizzled with a bit of unsweetened chocolate after they’ve baked and cooled.  When I made these I considered using sweetened milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate because […]

Chicken and Shrimp in Coconut Lime Tomato Sauce

Wow! This jambalaya style dish definitely satisfies the tastebuds. Even without the chicken and shrimp it would be delicious.  {The original recipe is for shrimp only, but I added chicken and I’m glad I did.  It gave it a good balance of proteins.} The sauce is what absolutely seals the deliciousness deal ~ it’s creamy […]

Strawberry Gelato

Until just recently, when I made this strawberry gelato, I had only tasted gelato one time ~ while vacationing on the island of St. Maarten.  My son introduced me to it and I loved it.  In fact, I went back for seconds! A few weeks ago I was searching on the internet for a frozen […]
