Potato Soup

I am loving this cool weather!  So naturally, I have to bring out all of my soup recipes and struggle to decide which one to make!  Potato soup is one of my favorites.  I have posted my recipe below.  Feel free to share any delicious soup recipes you may have or recommendations for my recipe!

Potato Soup


  • 1 whole Yellow Onion (diced)
  • 3 whole Carrots, (cleaned & diced small)
  • 2-3stalks of Celery (diced)
  • 6 whole Potatoes (I prefer Russet, peeled & diced)
  • 8 cups Chicken Broth
  • 3 Tbsp. Flour (All-Purpose)
  • 1 cup Milk.
  • 3/4 Cup Heavy Cream
  • Diced Bacon for topping
  • Shredded Cheese for topping
  • Salt & Pepper

In a pan, fry bacon until crisp.  Remove bacon and drain excess grease.  Add onion, celery, and carrots to a stew pot with a small amount of bacon grease. Allow to cook approx. 10 minutes.  Add potatoes.  Add salt and pepper to taste and continue to cook for 10 minutes.  Slowly stir in chicken broth.  Bring to a boil and allow to boil for 5-7 minutes.  Mix flour and water together until smooth.  Pour into soup.  Allow to cook an additional 10 minutes.

Remove approx. 1/2 of the soup using a measuring cup.  Pour into blender and blend until smooth.  Pour blended soup back into the pot.  Add heavy cream.  Simmer 5-7 minutes.  When ready to serve, scoop into bowls and top with cheese and bacon!
