How to Make Creamy potato soup


  • 1Thoroughly wash, peel and cube 5 large potatoes. Add to large stock pot of boiling water and boil for approximately 15 minutes or until potatoes reach desired tenderness. Stain and set aside.

  • 4with a wire whisk, gradually add the milk- stirring constantly to ensure there are no lumps. Continue to stir the milk mixture over medium heat until it begins to thicken slightly.
  • 5gradually add cheese, stirring constantly until soup is smooth. Add cooked potato cubes, stir until well combined. Serve hot!
