Home Made Potato Soup Recipe

  Home Made Potato Soup

This is my all time favorite recipe for home made potato soup. It’s pretty easy too and also a favorite if I have an upset stomach or just want a comfort food dish that I can make with what I already have in the house. It’s inexpensive, creamy and filling. Best of all,  I know it hasn’t sat in a can for a long with a bunch or preservatives.

Just to let you know, I didn’t use celery,  ham or bacon in it..my kids and I don’t like meat in ours and my husband isn’t a fan of celery. However, you can add them if you like. I do add meat to just my husband’s if I have it in the house.  I also don’t use cream since I use butter – no need for extra calories. You’ll see how I easily got the flavor of meat. 

Here’s my recipe:

  • This recipe makes roughly 8 bowls of soup. If you need more for a larger group, double the recipe.
  • If you need less, cut the recipe in half.
  • I like this in a large quantity so we can have the left overs the next day.
  • I bet you’re wondering, "What can I serve with it?"
  • I make grilled cheese sandwiches with mine.
  • We’re big dippers at our house and LOVE to dip them in the soup! You could also add your favorite bread, bread sticks, salad, or crackers.
  • Enjoy!
