Mmmm, Mom’s Creamy Potato Soup is the stuff good memories are made out of. Growing up in the northwest meant that we had lots of opportunities for cold, rainy nights with creamy potato soup and cinnamon rolls. Just the thought of it sends me to my happy place. We may have been cold and wet from playing outside but mom always knew that her creamy potato soup would warm us right up! Now that I’m older it still warms my heart and soul when I make it to serve to my family. So many great memories from when I was younger and now I’m adding to it with memories made by my own family. Since I’ve grown up and started making it on my own, I’ve also started to add stuff to it. Don’t get me wrong, creamy potato soup is great and will always hold a special place in my heart, but what about Baked Potato Soup! Delicious. Just delicious. Below is the basic recipe, but I encourage you to add your favorite toppings. Maybe a little bacon? A little sharp smoked cheddar? A few sauteed mushrooms? Maybe a few crumbled crackers on top? The possibilities are endless! The soup in the photo has bacon, corn, chives and pine nuts. I don’t know why, but I also like to stir in a teaspoon of honey in my bowl just before I eat. It doesn’t sound like it would be good, but it is.
