Cheesy Potato Soup

October 16, 2015

Fall is here and we’re ready for soup and bread, bread and soup – and I mean LOTS of soup with delicious bread.  It seems like when the weather starts to get even a little bit cool out, my first thought it to make a big pot of chili or potato soup like this recipe.

Mom had tons of potatoes from her garden so I snagged a bunch to make this creamy soup for us along with some homemade bread sticks.  It was the perfect meal after the weather had went quickly from hot to cold outside. Check out how easy this recipe is to make!
