I was in search of a potato soup recipe similar to Rafferty’s famous potato soup to make for my husband’s B-day. After reading endless soup recipes, I finally took all my favorite parts from each recipe and came up with this one. It’s now requested at ALL family functions during the winter months! Hope you enjoy as much as we do!!!
We just adore the creaminess of this soup. The flavors meld perfectly, no one ingredient overwhelming another.
This Creamy Potato Soup with Bacon is the perfect winter soup. Made with simple ingredients, this soup is the definition of comfort food. Serve it all by itself or make an apple bacon salad to go on the side and some warm fast easy biscuits.
Welp. We made it through the first week of everyone back in school and ALL the activities and I can tell you that we are BEAT. Seriously, all five of us need an epic nap. In fact, I just got home from picking up Piper at school, and she asked for a snuggle on the couch with me. So I am off to do that. #importanttasks But I wanted to give you this amazing soup recipe before I did.
THE KEY TO A GOOD POTATO SOUP
So the key to this recipe is making a good roux. It’s one of those things that we aren’t born knowing how to do, you know, like boiling water, but with a little practice you can make a roux to rival great sous chefs. It’s that fat and flour mixture that you slowly add liquid to that makes for a super creamy delicious soup.
