Potato Soup

Ingredients:

  • 4 Slices Bacon
  • 6-10 Cubed Potatoes
  • 1/4 c chopped onion
  • 1/4 c chopped celery
  • 1-2 shredded carrots
  • 1 Tbsp Parsley
  • Corn Starch or Flour
  • 2 c milk OR beef stock
  • 2 Tbsp Butter

Directions:

  1. Cover potatoes, onion, celery, and carrots with water.  Cook until boiling, then lower to a simmer until potatoes are tender.
  2. While pot is boiling, cook bacon until almost crisp, crumble and set aside.
  3. Add bacon, parsley and butter to simmering potatoes.
  4. Combine 1/4 c flour OR 4 Tbsp corn starch (adjust as needed) with milk or beef stock.  Mix well.
  5. Add mixture to soup for thickening.  It will thicken as it cooks, but if you feel it needs to be thicker, take some of the liquid and mix more flour/corn starch in then add back to soup.  If it gets too thick, add water!  You got this!
  6. Let simmer until good and creamy.  Enjoy!

Down Home Potato Soup Recipe: Dairy or Non-dairy!

Since part of the household can’t have dairy, and part can, ours was made non-dairy.  So, to get my dairy in, I added ranch dressing and it was out of this world!

I’d love to hear how you make it your own!  Let us know in the comments!
