The Best Potato Soup Recipe

Potato Soup Recipe

Here is a quick, easy, and inexpensive potato soup recipe that is perfect for Spring!

One of the best things about Spring is the lighter foods we cook and eat. If you are having a hard time making that transition from the full, rich winter foods, though, you may be at a loss as to what you can cook. Try this amazing potato soup recipe that is still filling and warm, but will also be lighter than most soups.

Recipe Type: Soup
Author: Ashley
  • 5 pounds of russet red potatoes with skin on (or off if you prefer), washed, and diced
  • Two packages of store bought potato soup mix (or use one 10 ounce can of diced potatoes, 1 10-ounce can of chicken broth, and Italian herbs and seasoning)
  • One 10-ounce can of cream of potato
  • One 10-ounce can of cream of mushroom
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pound summer sausage
  • 1 pound bacon
  • Optional – Shredded cheese and sour cream
  1. Place all ingredients, except meat, in a large pot with 10 cups of water. Allow it all to come to a boil and then simmer for four hours.
  2. On hour two, cook up the bacon and lightly saute the sausage.
  3. Pour a bit of the bacon grease into the soup, chop up the bacon and add it and the sausage.
  4. Then, when soup is done (roughly 2 hrs. later), you may add in a few dollops of sour cream, mix well, and top each bowl with shredded cheese if you’d like.
