Cheesy potato soup

Sounds great doesn't it?

I totally made this recipe up myself.

So here are the ingredients

You have Red potatoes, russet potatoes. butter, onions cheese bullion and cornstarch. I also used a little milk.

First you wash the potatoes.
Use cold water and a stiff brush.
I then peeled the russet potatoes.
Then sliced ALL the potatoes into chunks.

Then I chopped up the onion and placed it in a pan with a stick of butter.
Sauteed the onions till they look done.
Then add the potatoes cover with water and boil.
I added a spoonful of the bullion that I use.
It looks interesting but works well.
I also added come dried celery.

You can tell that the potatoes are don when they mush up.
I then use a potato masher to mash those potatoes. You don't have to do a lot some chunks are ok.
I then add the cornstarch.

A little tip on cornstarch. never add it to a hot liquid without first dissolving it in a cold liquid. If you fail to do this you will have lumps.

add milk


This will thicken up the soup.

I then added cheese.

Those red bits are the red potato skins. Not bacon. I dislike bacon. However my family added bacon bits to theirs.

Here is my bowl.
garnished with cheese


The verdict. 

Was amazing. Seriously. Go make some.

I made a huge batch and there was nothing leftover. Nothing. I thought I had enough to freeze some. I was wrong.


Question was asked int he comments about the types of potatoes used. I used the red and russet because that was what I had on hand. This will work well with any potato. Also spice with whatever seasonings you want. taste ans see what you think might be good.


  1. Was there a reason you did russett and red? I have just red at home and was thinking of doing that.

  2. I used the potatoes That I used because that was what was lying around the house.

    This soup works with whatever potatoes you might want.

  3. That looks so good! I will have to try it sometime :)


    My Mother-In-Law came over and asked to take a bowl home with her because she loved it so much.

  5. I love potato soup, I need to make this very soon.
