Homemade Potato Soup Recipe

This homemade potato soup recipe has been a family favorite of ours for years and years. It’s actually a shock that I haven’t shared it you guys sooner, haha! I’m so sorry! I didn’t mean to keep it from you guys in any way, I promise! It really is that kind of a recipe that beckons you come wintertime when all you want is something warm and yummy on a cold winter night. Curling up to a bowl of this at night is like a winter dream. My son is vegetarian, too, and so we leave the bacon bits out of it and serve it only to those meat eaters of the household because he too adores this recipe like the rest of us. So if you have any vegetarians in the family that still consume milk and cheese like my son does, they can enjoy this right along with you!

Spoonful of the Best Potato Soup Ever

Best Potato Soup Recipe

We make this potato soup recipe opting for more cream and cheese than other recipes call typically for, and with good reason. I mean, can you blame me? Sure, we can opt to add in a cup of chicken broth to dial down that thick creaminess and go for a lighter version, but this one is chock full of cream and cheese – such deliciousness! And sooo worth it! This soup is so ridiculously creamy and thick, you might even consider it as a creamy loaded potato soup. instead Or, you might even call it a creamy mashed potato dish in a bowl! Loaded mashed potato soup recipe, perhaps? Whatever you call it, just be sure to make it and enjoy it with people you love!

Cheesiest Potato Soup Recipe

Yes, that cheese pull is real! That ooey-gooey melt in your mouth cheese with cheese on top, gah! If I hadn’t already had this for lunch I’d be in the kitchen heating these leftovers up right now! This potato soup recipe makes a huge batch which is fantastic for big families, events, leftovers, and more! You can halve it if you need to for smaller families or occasions. I personally prefer having a big ‘ol batch of this at the ready in the wintertime – for lunches, for soup and sandwiches! Sometimes we just have a soup night where we make this and our other family favorite, Chicken Tortilla soup!
