Homemade Potato Soup

Hi Everyone,

Today I have a traditional, comforting, homemade potato soup that is creamy, thick and oh so delicious!!  Plus, another post of Man Vs Woman potato soup toppings!!

I guess from the photo you can tell my Husbands toppings of choice was lots of gooey cheese topped with a pile of bacon!   I’ll admit bacon goes nicely in potato soup!  I made the bacon for breakfast and we had a few slices left over and just for my Husband I decided to crumble it on top of his soup!  He loved it!!  I’ll tell ya, one thing about bacon is that it photographs nicely.  Can you keep a secret?   I snuck a piece of bacon, but don’t tell anyone.

My topping of choice was a dollop of plain Greek Yogurt for extra creaminess, a sprinkle of cheese, a dash of smoked paprika and some scallions.  I loved it!!  It tasted like done up mashed potatoes!  What is your favorite topping on potato soup?  It’s such a versatile soup that you could add a lot of goodies to it.

This potato soup is very easy to make, the total time is about 40 minutes.  The worse part is peeling the potatoes.  I don’t know why, but I hate peeling them.  Since the skin of the potatoes is the most nutritional part I would have left the skins on, but my Husband hates when I leave the skin on fruits and vegetables.  The soup in general is very creamy, and the next day it’s even thicker and tastes even better.  We had this two nights in a row.  I really need to make potato soup more often.  I always forget how good it is until I have it.
