How to Make Potato Soup, Quick and Easy and Still from Scratch .


  • 1Wash potatoes and slice them with skins on into 1/4 - 1/2 inch slices. In medium saucepan cover with water and bring to a boil. Boil until tender, about 15 - 20 minutes. Drain.
  • 2Slice turkey bacon into 1/2 inch slices, slice onion in same width slices, and brown/cook in large stove top sturdy pan, I use a cast iron dutch oven. This step can be done while potatoes are boiling, takes 8 minutes.
  • 3Season bacon and onions with salt and peppers.
  • 4Stir in balsamic vinegar.
  • 5Add drained potaoes and half n half. Stir.
  • 6Heat throughly in saucepan/dutch oven taking care to heat quickly and not over cook because potatoes will break down easily.
  • 7I serve with a pepper relish or corn relish as condiment. My kids love some shredded cheddar and or a dollop of sour cream on top!
  • 8Corn can be added to make this even heartier or to vary flavor.
    Should you only have baking or Russetts on hand this makes a great side dish. Follow directions letting ingredients heat slower and as the potatoes break down they thicken making this a delightful side dish.
