Dawn's Creamy Potato Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by internetnut

I recieved this recipe from my fiance's friend from work. This is the first potato soup I ever made. To me this is a very good basic potato soup recipe. I do not use 1 1/2 bags potatoes I only use 1/2-1 bag potatoes. I cook this on medium heat for 20-30 minutes. I also thicken this soup with 3 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water or more.

We really enjoyed this. I used about 5-6 lg potatoes and quite a bit more (lo-fat) milk than 2 cups - more like 4 to cover the potatoes. After adding the cheese, I added another 2 cups of milk to make it soupier - it was quite thick. Topped with crispy bacon and green onions. Very good basic recipe and most of all no special trip to the store--had all the ingredients! YEAH!!!

  4. Fry the bacon and cut into pieces then add to the soup.
  5. Boil on low to medium heat until the potatoes are fork tender about 15-20 minutes or longer if needed.
