Homestyle Potato Soup

Tish Young


Add a little bacon for a meaty crunch or some cheese on top! This is a long time family favourite. I was homesick and missing my family, so I whipped up a big pot of potato soup and settled into my memories.

How to Make Homestyle Potato Soup


  1. Peel the potatoes and carrots. Chop. Set aside carrots. Chop up onion.
  2. In a soup pot or slow cooker, add the olive oil and onions, and garlic. Add in the potatoes.
