Potato Soup

Today I am Sharing  a yummy potato soup recipe I made this week. It's so good! Plus it doesn't take long at all to whip up, Perfect for a cold windy day. The recipe is by Laura Vitale - every recipe I have tried by her has been a hit. I will share link if you would like to watch her do her magic...
Loaded Potato Soup. Laura in the Kitchen episode 863

The only difference in mine is I used what I had on hand... 
2% Milk and I omitted the Green Onions.

What You'll Need...
4 Potatoes - peeled and diced into 1/2" pieces
1 Yellow onion - diced
4 tbsp. all purpose flour
4 tbsp. unsalted butter
8 slices of bacon
3 cups chicken stock
3 cups of whole milk
1/2 cup of sour cream
1&1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
chopped green onions
salt and pepper to taste

In a large Dutch oven or soup pot, cook the bacon until it becomes nice and crispy. Remove to a paper towel lined plate, set aside.

Discard any fat that the bacon rendered, add the butter and onion to the pot and sauté till the onion becomes translucent and develops a bit of color, about 4-5 minutes.

Add the flour and stir constantly for 1 minute, add the milk, stock and potatoes bring to a simmer, cook for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.   

Add the sour cream, cooked bacon (cut into pieces) and cheese, stir everything together and cook for 5 minutes more.

 Adjust the seasoning to taste and serve, sprinkling some chopped green onion and cheese over top.

Enjoy <3


  1. That looks delicious! I don't know about the weather in your area but it turned chilly today and this would be a definite hit for dinner tonight.

    1. Hi Pamela, Chilly and windy here as well, Hubby requested 8 can soup for dinner. No matter how well we plan out our menus us poor mommas have to learn to go with the flow. If you have these items on hand I highly recommend you try tonight, fits the weather perfectly. Let me know if you do. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday : )

    Would you believe I am looking for a soup recipe for company Wednesday night?
    I believe I have found a winner!
    Thanks so much, my friend!

  4. Just came to look at your soup recipe and also to thank you for stopping by my blog. Thank you!
    I had a little chuckle when i read the above comment about how many servings in your recipe. Soup like that either serves 6-8 OR just 1 Kathleen ;) I will definitely be trying that!
    Have a great weekend.

    1. Hi Kathleen I am lol Because I too could eat all of this soup - as a matter of fact mamma finished off the leftovers all by herself. Would you believe I am already craving this soup again? Let me know if you try it. Thanks for stopping by : )
