Potato Soup

Somedays I have cravings for carbs and lots of them!   I made this yummy and easy potato soup recipe last weekend and I will definitely make it again.  I forgot to take a picture of my huge bowl filled with soup before I ate it :)

However, here it is in my huge pot cooking.

Potato Soup

1 stick margarine
1/2 onion chopped
1 - 8 ounce container French Onion dip
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 soup cans of milk
10 medium potatoes, cubed and boiled until almost done
Bacon, cooked and crumbled

In dutch oven, saute onion in margarine until tender.  Add dip, soup and milk, stirring until smooth.  Add partially boiled potatoes.  Cook on medium heat until potatoes are done.
Garnish with cheese and bacon.

It is predicted to be cooler here this weekend and I may cook me another pot of soup!

Thanks for visiting and God Bless!

Oh I'll bet the french onion dip really adds to potato soup! I'm going to print this recipe so that when it finally becomes cool here in Texas I can surprise my beloved with it.

Yum. Being the good "German from Russia" that I am, I love potato anything! Just had soup for supper because when I eat our school lunch I'm not very hungry at night. Thanks for sharing this recipe. ♥♫
