Okay, so not to brag or anything, but this here is the best ever potato soup recipe! The. Best. Ever.
** Don’t be mislead by the unfortunate lighting in my pictures, it actually looks and tastes really good! For some reason, I just could not get good pictures! I’ll have to remember to try again the next time I make it, and update this post.**
I tried several different recipes, and as usual, mixed them all around and then added some of my own special touches, and “Voila” - Phenomenal Potato Soup! I could eat this soup all day long. Yum! This soup also reheats really well, so make sure to make a good amount so you have plenty of leftovers. ;) So, without further ado, here is the recipe….
Best Potato Soup
3 cups peeled & chopped potatoes
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 qt chicken stock
1 T. bacon grease (or butter in a pinch)
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
2 T. flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup chopped ham or bacon
2 t. dried minced garlic
1/2 - 1 tsp. turmeric, optional
pinch cayenne pepper
salt & pepper to taste
Place first 8 ingredients in crockpot, and cook on low for 4 hours. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook for another hour, stirring to make sure cheese is all melted and incorporated.
*For a variation, you can add one can of corn, and it becomes corn chowder, Yummy!!!
Well now I’m hungry, so I think I’m going to go make myself some of this fabulous soup!
Update- I now make this in my instant pot, on the “slow cook” setting. I LOVE my instant pot! ❤️❤️❤️
