Potato Soup


Potato Soup
This is a delicious easy soup to make.  Perfect for cold winter nights! Last night after a busy day I wanted to make something that tasted delicious and was a feel good meal. My hubby and I are soup lovers - I honestly think we could eat soup everyday 
during the cold winter season.


3 pounds of Potatoes - peeled & cubed
2 stalks of Celery - chopped
2 cloves of Garlic - chopped
1/2 Medium Onion - chopped
2 Tablespoons Butter
4 Chicken bullion cubes
1/2 cup of chopped carrots
Real Bacon Bits
Seasoning salt
Pepper
Emeril's Seasoning


Boil potatoes in large soup pot - cook till tender.
Boil carrots in separate small pot - cook till tender.
Saute celery, garlic, and onion in butter in a skillet that will hold 4 cups of water

When celery - garlic - onions are sauteed add 4 cups of hot water and 4 chicken bullion cubes to skillet. Make sure to cook and stir until the chicken bullion cubes are dissolved.

When potatoes are tender drain and return to pot. Add sauteed celery, onions, bullion water to the potatoes. Take a masher and lightly mash potatoes. When you have mashed the potatoes add the carrots.  Add spices & Bacon bites to taste.  Simmer until ready to eat.

Do you have a favorite soup?
