This easy recipe for potato soup is quick and simple, and it only costs a few bucks to make a huge pot of soup. It even tastes better as leftovers! If you want a recipe for truly rich and creamy potato soup, this is the one.
This is basically my grandmother’s recipe for potato soup, except I’ve made a few minor modifications. First, I add a “not-so-secret” secret ingredient to thicken the soup without having to fool around with making a roux. Second, I’ve added some heavy cream to make the soup a little more rich. (Granny just used milk, which made the soup a bit watery for my taste.)
This soup is absolutely delicious as-is, but you can also add in a few other ingredients to turn it into a loaded baked potato soup, too. Just add some sour cream, green onions, bacon and shredded cheddar cheese at the table. (Everyone can customize their soup to their liking.)
