Potato soup-Healthy for the Soul

Isinatra profile image

An old recipe with a few new tweaks. (grated cheddar cheese and apple smoked bacon bits) Saw a recipe that called for a dollop of sour cream on top, but didn’t have any on hand. Newer recipes called for puréeing some of the soup to make it thicker. But my old recipe said to use a potato masher while they are still in the pot. The old way worked just fine. You can’t tell how thick it is by looking at the pic, but take my word for it…..it’s as thick as I am on a good day. Had a small bowl last night and I slept like a baby afterwards. 💛For our friends who don’t eat pork, the bacon bits are optional. 😉

Thank you, Springcross. It was fun. I made it for happytulip as well. Hoping to cheer her up. I think she’s around here somewhere.🤔😉

Thank you my dear, it looks delicious and I wish I could have a bowl right now. I still here but not "here" at the moment. I'm enjoying looking at all the pictures but unfortunately my AI conditions have escalated since my vaccine.

In the words of Arnie, "I'll be back."

Thanks again for the soup post. It's actually making me hungry x

Thank you, jerry. I made sure to make it for Sunday, since things usually are a little quiet on this day.😁

I would opt out of the bacon bits for religious reasons but everything else looks delish

Hiiiiiiii friend ( waves frantically)

It sure does. The woman can throw down a good meal;)

Looks delicious and beautifully presented Isinatra. Love the way you've decorated the potatoe soup with seasoning and cheese. Looks a bit like a dessert at first glance 😋 sorry me and my sweet tooth 😜

Sweets for the sweet, Zara. Next time I’ll make a dessert appropriate to accompany potato’s. Key lime pie comes to mind? I’ll keep an eye out for a lime tree to scrump. 😁

What sounds nice is some shaved chocolate on the key lime pie. 😋😋

Melted chocolate sounds nice drizzled on the key lime pie 🥧🍫

Potato’s and cream are decadent, so it makes sense to do some drizzling. Yum. Keep the party going…

Me too 😋🍫🥄

Hi can you tell me where to the recipe for this soup? please Orange60

Isinatra in reply to Orange60

Surely, Orange60. 😁It was from Southern Living cookbook.1981 Annual Recipes. Page 19. I’ve tweaked it over the years. Left out the celery and added grated carrots for color. After the potato’s are boiled, drain out the water so it’s barely covering the potato’s or else the soup will be too thin. I usually double the recipe. I don’t know of you can find it online, but if you can’t, let me know and I will pm you the recipe. Bon Apetit!
