MenuDuet’s Notes: In the picture displayed;

-I opened and stirred the Potato Mixture once every hour. (Three Stirs).

-Original Recipe says “This recipe does not freeze well. Good for 3 days in fridge.”

-Add some extra cheese or bacon on top when finished, if desired.

We love Potato Soup in this family, and we were itching to find a recipe that could compete with my partners grandma’s potato soup. (Hard time finding her secret ingredient). After no luck we decided to try this recipe we found, and boy was it a success!!

Great combination of flavors with the onions and bacon, a nice creamy soup that is heavy and filling. Great for cold nights.
