Mmmmm… Potato soup. There have been 2 times in my life, to date, where potato soup reached a level of satisfaction that made my taste buds go choir Ahhh* . The first was with Au Bon Pain’s potato creme cheese soup, the second more recent with my late Grandmother-in-law Dawn’s potato soup. The latter is a something so delicious, it had to be shared here today. The soup was prepared by my mother-in-law Vicky, and when I inquired about this family recipe I was expecting to to tackle something complex with secret ingredients. Oddly, the recipe is not complex. The soup has only have 6 ingredients and 6 easy steps! How can it be? Well, sometimes great recipes don’t have to have 20 ingredients or 20 steps. Sometimes simple can be refreshingly delicious. Enjoy!
