Simple Potato Soup

In the past, we have made potato soup from a popular package mix that you can find at just about any grocery store. We’ve added additional potatoes and a few yummy toppings and called it a day, but recently, we decided to try to make our own, and it was way easier than I ever dreamed!

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 Large Russet Potatoes
  • 2 Stalks of Celery (diced)
  • 1/2 of a medium-sized yellow onion (diced)
  • 1/2 a cup of scallions (diced)
  • 2-3 Cups of Chicken Broth
  • 1 Can of Evaporated Milk or 1 Cup of Whole Milk
  • (I have tried it both ways, and it works well either way!)
  • Salt & Pepper (to taste)
  • Optional Toppings: Shredded Cheese and/or Additional Scallions

 Quick Tip: I like to double the recipe so we have enough for leftovers!

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step #1: Begin by dicing the potatoes, celery, onion, and scallions.

Step #2: Add the vegetables and chicken broth to a large pot and bring everything to a boil.

Step #3: When the vegetables are tender, add the milk, salt, and pepper – allowing the soup to simmer for 5-10 more minutes.

Step #4: Serve topped with shredded cheese and/or additional scallions.

Quick Tip: Let’s talk bacon! You can toss in 2-8 pieces (hahaha!) of cooked bacon (diced) in to the soup while it’s cooking or you can top your soup with bacon crumbles. Either way is delish!

This is a great recipe to make with your kids! In fact, I recently took my oldest to the grocery store for some one-on-one time. We grabbed everything we needed to make this recipe, and when we got home we prepped dinner together. Putting a meal together this way was a sweet reminder that I needed to get my kiddos in the kitchen with me as much as possible! I don’t want to always be in such a rush that I don’t take advantage of all of the things they can learn while helping me at the kitchen counter.
