Irish Potato Soup

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Debbwl

Have been making this for years. The bay leaf is what makes this one a little different from a lot of potato soups.

I am typically not a big fan of potato soup, but this soup was so delicious!! I used my immersion blender to puree it and added the polish sausage. My soup was a little thin, but I think it's because my potatoes tended to be on the smaller side. The taste was just perfect. This recipe is definitely a keeper - thanks for posting it!
