Creamy Potato Soup


Creamy Potato Soup by BigFamilyBlessings.com
When I think of autumn, potato soup is the first meal I crave- hot, comforting, and a little spicy…YUM!  I know autumn isn’t here yet, but we’ve had several unseasonably cool days which have found me cooking favorite warm, comfort foods.

I grew up eating this yummy, creamy potato soup and now it is a favorite of my family also.  It is the perfect meal for a cool, fall evening.  Customize the soup by adding more or less spice, and by choosing how you serve it.  My mom simply served the soup with a plate of peanut butter crackers to dip into the liquid.  I love crumbling a hot cornbread muffin into my potato soup while my husband prefers it served with extra cheese, bacon, and green onion sprinkled on top.
