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


  1. Wash 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.
  2. Slice 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.
  3. Season bacon and onions with salt and peppers.
  4. Stir in balsamic vinegar.
  5. Add drained potaoes and half n half. Stir.
  6. Heat throughly in saucepan/dutch oven taking care to heat quickly and not over cook because potatoes will break down easily.
  7. I 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!
  8. Corn 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.
