How To Make 5-Ingredient Potato Soup

Thick, hearty, and flavorful, this potato soup is made with Russet potatoes, onions, vegetable broth, Old Bay seasoning, and sharp cheddar cheese.

Preparation: 1 minute
Cooking: 19 minutes
Total: 20 minutes



  • 6green onions,thinly sliced with white and parts separated
  • 6cupschicken broth,or vegetable broth
  • 2lbsfrozen hash browns,or fresh Russett potatoes, cubed or shredded
  • 2tbspOld Bay seasoning,or any Cajun seasoning
  • 1cupshredded sharp cheddar,plus extra for serving


  1. In a large stockpot, stir together the white parts of the sliced green onions (not the green hollow parts), broth, hash browns and seasoning.

  2. Heat over medium-high heat until the soup reaches a low boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  3. Once the potatoes are cooked and soft, use an immersion blender to puree most of the soup until it is nice and thick. (Or transfer the soup to a traditional blender, and puree it there until smooth.)

  4. Return soup to stockpot and stir in cheddar until combined.

  5. Serve warm, garnished with extra cheddar and the green parts of the green onions.
