This is a childhood classic for me. I’m super excited to get Mom’s Creamy Potato Soup on the blog!
4 simple ingredients, comfort food at it’s finest.
This is one of those dishes I just make – no recipe, I just make it. And every time I think about putting it here on this site I panic because writing a recipe is actually hard. You have to remember things and actually measure things.
This is a little different than other potato soups that I’ve had! There are no chunks of potatoes in it, it is smooth and creamy. I lived on this soup during my cancer treatments.
Mom’s Creamy Potato Soup
This is a super simple soup with 4 basic ingredients. I think the secret to this is boiling the potatoes with the onions.
AND AND AND I almost forgot! Make this with Fair Life milk and PROTEIN. Anything I can make with extra protein in a win in my book, like My Fair Mac and Cheese!
Salt is another key! Potatoes and salt have a complicated relationship – more complicated than Ross and Racheal on Friends even! So tasting this as you cook is important.
Too little salt makes the soup seem a little bland, too much and well, it’s salty. Just the right amount and the flavor of the soup really comes through.
This is a great make ahead recipe that can be kept warm in a crock pot! And can we just talk toppings for this soup – they are virtually unlimited!
