Instructions
 

  • In a large pot, bring the potatoes and stock to a boil. Cook the potatoes until they are fork-tender, about 15 minutes.

    Notes

    Serving Suggestions

    This Potato Soup Recipe is delicious, but you can also serve it with a crusty baguette or some crackers. For a heartier meal, add some cooked bacon or sausage. Match this soup with a green salad for a complete dinner.

    Storing Suggestions

    Store leftover soup in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Freeze this soup for up to 2 months. However, we recommend that you not add the dairy if you plan to freeze the soup. The dairy will separate when thawed and cause the soup to be watery. When ready to enjoy the soup, reheat it on the stove and stir in some milk or cream.
