Recipe: Creamy Potato Soup

This potato soup recipe is adapted from a few recipes… it’s just delicious!

A perfect compliment to a hearty sandwich.

This tastes like a cream soup without the fat and calories because you puree some of the potatoes instead of using butter and cream. I don’t puree all the potatoes so I have some of the texture of the potatoes still left in the soup.

You can lower the fat of this recipe even further by using lower fat cream cheese.

You won’t believe just how easy this soup is to make!

This soup is a definite family pleaser.

Bon Appetit!
