Potato Soup. It’s one of those things that makes you all warm and tingly inside just thinking about it. I love a good comforting bowl of potato soup on a cool night, but it’s also a nice quick meal that will be on the table in less than 30 minutes. And with just a handful of ingredients, it’s super easy to prepare as well! Let’s get started…
Start by melting 3 tbsp butter in a large saucepan. When the butter is melted, add in 1/4 cup flour…
Stir that with a whisk until it’s smooth. Let it cook for about a minute, stirring constantly…this will cook out the ‘raw flour’ taste…
Now, gradually add in 4 cups milk, stirring briskly as you add it in. Now, dice up about 3 or 4 potatoes, to make around 2 cups of diced potatoes. Throw those into the pan…
Dice up half an onion and toss in the pan
Add about 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper, or to taste. Then, let the mixture cook over medium-low heat, stirring often, until it thickens and potatoes are tender.
While the soup is cooking, dice up some bacon (I use turkey bacon, but use whatever you like) finely…
And fry until crisp…
Spoon the soup into bowls and top with bacon
Then top with cheese and croutons or whatever else tickles your fancy.
Try this homey recipe…and you’ll be snuggled up on the couch in a blanket in no time!
