HOW TO MAKE CREAMY POTATO SOUP?
Today, something savory!
Savory and fluffy, this dish is brimming with bacon, sour cream, and cheese. You are also aware that we do not specialize in healthy food around here, correct?
Today I’m going to share with you a simple and delectable one-pot creamy potato soup recipe! This is a favored comfort meal in my home since it is loaded with bacon and fluffy potato goodness.
However, potato soup will undoubtedly be on the table this weekend… Outside is so bitterly cold that I’ve told myself that I need soup, especially creamy potato soup, in order to live. Evidently, potato soup causes me to be dramatic.
This will be an excellent comfort meal for this chilly and windy weekend (is there something cozier than a pot of soup simmering on the stove while the wind howls outside your window?). None at all!?) , and while I am not a sports fan, I do know that this will be an excellent dish to prepare ahead of time and enjoy during this weekend’s big game.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED TO MAKE THIS SOUP:
Russet potatoes, I used about 5 medium potatoes, I peeled and diced them into small cubes.
21/2 Cups.Of milk.
11/2 Cups.Of chopped yellow onion.
11/4 Cups.Of peeled and diced carrots.
1 Cup.Of diced celery.
1/3 Cup.Of butter.
1/3 Cup.Of all-purpose flour.
1/2 Cup.Of sour cream.
Low-sodium chicken broth, I used two medium cans of 14.5-ounces.
To season, I used Salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Optional INGREDIENTS FOR TOPPING:

Shredded cheddar cheese
THIS IS HOW TO MAKE THIS POTATO SOUP STEP-BY-STEP:
In a big saucepan, combine sliced potatoes, carrots, celery, and onions with chicken broth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Then, you need to bring to a simmer, covered, over medium-high flame (it will take about 10 minutes to reach a boil).
If it comes to a simmer, reduce to medium heat and steam for an additional 15–20 minutes, or until potatoes are very tender when penetrated with a fork.
Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and simmer, whisking constantly, for 1 minute.
And now, add the milk gradually when whisking and simmer, stirring continuously, before the mixture starts to thicken.
Once the potatoes are tender, stir in the thickened milk mixture to the potato soup mixture.
Following that, you need to combine well after adding the sour cream.
And fill serving bowls halfway with broth and garnish with bacon or pork, cheddar cheese, and green onions.
