Potato Soup

When the temps drop just the tinniest bit here in Florida I start craving soups. Even my kiddos start requesting soups and their ultimate favorite is Potato Soup.

    Nikki,

    This is my kind of soup – the kind that looks like it sticks to and warms your bones. I usually have some potatoes sitting around and this looks like it is quick and easy. Two questions: Have you tried using regular (dairy, soy, etc.) milk? and What type of potatoes do you like to use?

    I appreciate you swapping soups.

    • This soup is quick and easy and very versatile. It is also very forgiving, I have used all types of dairy and it has turned out great. (Milk, half and half, almond milk, soy milk) as for potatoes I use whatever I have on hand, red, baking, white, russet, gold, like I said very versatile.
