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

  2. In a soup pot or slow cooker, add the olive oil and onions, and garlic. Add in the potatoes.
