Creamy Potato Soup & Cheesy Biscuits

Today I'm sharing a family favorite of ours. We love it soo much I made this twice last week. After the second time I thought I should probably share it. This soup is simple, easy and delicious. You'll have to bare with me when it comes to the recipe. I do not measure when I cook. When I bake yes, but cooking is a whole other story. Most times I just throw things together. This soup is a good example of that. It's similar to another potato soup recipe I've shared before. I'm also sharing my absolute favorite cheesy biscuit recipe. LOVE them!!

Creamy Potato Soup
  • 6 - 8 potatoes
  • 1 large carrot or a big handful of baby carrots
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 6 cups water
  • 6 tsp reduced sodium stock mix, or 4 bullion cubes 
  • 2 cups milk
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. Finely chop carrot, celery and onion or let a food processor do the work for you. 
  2. Add veggies to a large pot with butter. Saute over medium heat, about 7 - 10 mins. 
  3. While veggies saute chop potatoes into bite size pieces. Add to pot. 
  4. Stir in water and stock mix. Bring to a boil. Once it reaches a boil turn heat down to med/low and let simmer at least 20 minutes. (The potatoes should be tender by this point.)
  5. After 20 minutes turn heat back up and stir in milk. Once it reaches a boil, turn it down to simmer again. Let simmer as long as you like. The longer the thicker the soup will be.
  6. Once you're ready to eat, turn the heat off. Get out a blender and puree one batch at a time. Pour soup back into pot and mix in between batches. Once soups reaches the consistency you like, you're done. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • You can use whatever kind of potatoes you want. Also, you can leave the skin on if you like. I always do with red potatoes.
  • Feel free to use tetra packed soup stock. If I have it, I use it.
  • Top with cheese, bacon bits, green onion/chives or sour cream. 
  • While the soup is simmering start your biscuits. Then they're both ready at the same time! 

Jiffy Cheesy Biscuits
from Company's Coming - Gifts from the Kitchen
Makes 24 biscuits.
  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 4 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/3 cups cold water
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl. 
  3. Cut in butter until crumbly. 
  4. Add cheese and water. Mix. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. 
  5. Bake for 20 minutes until lightly browned. 
  • I've used butter and margarine for these and both work well and taste great.
  • Add a teaspoon of parsley flakes for some added color.
  • Try parchment paper instead of greasing your pan.
You can have this meal on table in less than an hour. Hope your family likes it as much as mine does!
