Between helping the HH install the new kitchen faucet and folding laundry last night, I made a delicious potato soup for dinner.   I used the leftover potatoes from the night before.  This recipe turned out so good in fact, I felt I had to share this {simple} recipe with you.  FYI: I think I could eat this soup everyday for lunch if I had too.  If given the choice I’d even choose this potato soup over my favorite Panera soup: Creamy tomato. Oh yes, it’s that good.

Okay, are you ready? This recipe is so simple a monkey could make it. Here we go. Chop 1 large onion, 4 pieces of cooked bacon, and about 2lbs of cooked red potatoes.

Over medium heat saute the potatoes and onion in 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Add 1 tablespoon Italian Herb Seasoning {red pepper flakes, thyme, oregano, basil, garlic} and stir.

Next, toss in 1 can of drained corn and a 1/2 cup of chopped, cooked bacon.  Stir.

Add 5 cups of milk, reduce heat to simmer and cook for 20-30 minutes.

Ladle hot soup into 10 oz ramekins, and serve with a small salad and slice of garlic toast.

  1. That looks delicious. Now to find some potatoes.

  2. Do they have to be red potatoes? Will white ones do?

    • The red potatoes hold up a little better than the ordinary white ones but I think white would be just fine if that’s what you have on hand.
