Baby, It's Cold Outside

So, why not warm up with some creamy, cheesey, potato-ey soup?! This is one of Don's favorite recipes, and it's a great winter meal. I usually serve it with beer bread or some other hearty carbohydrate. It makes a big batch, so if your family is small you may want to cut it in half. Enjoy!

Potato Soup


Ingredients:
  • 8 medium potatoes- peeled/diced
  • 1 carrot- shredded
  • ½ tbs. minced onion
  • 6 cups water
  • Can of cream of chicken soup
  • 8 tbsp butter
  • 8 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 3 cups milk
  • 8 oz. cream cheese (softened)
 Directions:
  • Cook potatoes and carrot in 6 cups water until tender
  • In a saucepan, over medium-low heat, melt together butter, flour, salt, pepper, and milk, stirring/whisking continually (it helps if you add a little bit at a time instead of everything together at once)
  • Whip/Beat together cream cheese and soup
  • Add the cream cheese/soup mix and the flour/butter/milk mix to the potatoes
  • Stir and keep over medium/low heat until fully combined
  • Garnish with cheese, bacon, and green onion
