How to make Potato Soup Recipe:

Once potatoes are tender add in remaining ingredients in the order listen. For a thicker soup serve now. For a creamy soup (like in the pictures) continue to mash or use an immersion blender. Serve topped with shredded cheddar cheese, cooked and crumbled bacon, and diced green onions.

Hi Jennie ,
Could you please tell me what type of bread bowl you have in the pictures .
Hi Lee, I got this bread bowl at a local bakery. Hope you enjoy the soup!!
I so enjoy your site and your recipes. Would you please consider adding a print option so we can enjoy your recipes a little more easily. Thank you.
Thanks Sonia! I'm so glad you like the recipe. Most recipes including this one should have a print option (working on updating some really old ones). If you scroll down to the recipe on this page you will see on the right hand side next to the title of the recipe it says print. Click on that and a printable version will come up for you!
