How To Make The Best Potato Soup
Savor the creamy goodness of this potato soup filled with soft potatoes, cheese, and bacon – an awesome recipe giving a wide array of flavors in one bowl!
In a large stockpot, combine diced potatoes, carrots, celery, and onions with chicken broth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Cover pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once it reaches a boil, reduce heat to medium and continue to cook for about 15 to 20 minutes until potatoes are very soft when pierced with a fork.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat, add flour and cook for 1 minute while whisking constantly. While whisking, slowly add milk and cook, stirring constantly until mixture begins lightly bubble and thicken.
Once potatoes are soft, add thickened milk mixture to potato soup mixture and stir; potatoes should start breaking down into soup, if not cook a few minutes longer. Add sour cream and mix well.
Ladle soup into serving bowls, top each serving with bacon or ham, cheddar cheese and green onions.
The soup will thicken as it rests so if there are left overs, thin with a little water or milk.
