I love classic recipes. You know, the ones without all the bells and whistles, just like this Thick and Creamy Potato Soup! It’s delicious and simple, like comfort food should be!
My Mama used to make this Thick and Creamy Potato Soup during the winter months for us a lot growing up. It was always piping hot and delicious and the perfect way to warm up after a cold day. Making it for my family always brings back good memories! Another yummy recipe my Mama made for us was her thick and hearty chili!
I love this soup because it’s simple, made in a single pot, and doesn’t take long to whip up. The longest part about all of this is peeling five pounds of potatoes, but if you have older kids, you can make them peel them like my Mama used to! If you like a thinner soup, my Mama said you can just add a bit more water than the recipe calls for when cooking the potatoes. I like mine thick, so this is perfect for me.
- 5 lbs of potatoes, peeled and cut up into 1" cubes
- 1 bunch of fresh green onions, chopped
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 pint of heavy cream
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Peel and cut up your potatoes, and place them in a big soup pot.
- Fill the pot with enough water to just cover the potatoes.
- Chop up the green ends of your green onions into small pieces and add them to the potatoes.
- Put in the stick of butter and salt and pepper.
- Bring the mixture to a boil, then cover and heat on low.
- When the potatoes are nice and soft, and the soup is nice and thick, add in the cream.
- Continue to let it cook until the soup is nice and hot, but never boiling.
- Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot.
