Yet Another Potato Soup Recipe

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Lusil

I made this soup yesterday with what I had on hand. The family loved it and declared it a keeper. I wanted to get this recipe posted, before I forgot what the heck I did and had to rely on memory (not a good thing!).

Thanks for the recipe Lusil. I found this one day when it was dropping a foot of snow on us. I made it for dinner that night and it was wonderful. It actually tops my mother's own potato soup recipe. SSShhhhhh....Don't tell her.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot, combine potatoes, onions, celery, broth, water and pepper (don't add salt, as the broth already has it) and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer until veggies are tender.
  3. Slightly mash some, but not all, of the potatoes with a fork.
  4. Combine 1/2& 1/2 and flour until well blended.
  5. Add to soup and simmer until thickend (add water if necessary if soup gets too thick).
  6. Add cheese and bacon, stirring until cheese is melted.
  7. Serve.
  8. If desired, serve with additional cheese, bacon and green onion sprinkled on top.
  9. I think a dollop of sour cream would be good too, but I didn't have any.
