Why make this recipe

There’s nothing better than a warm bowl of homemade soup. This creamy potato soup is filled with potatoes, carrots, onions and topped with bacon!

This soup can be ready in just one hour making it perfect for dinner any night of the week. Plus, it’s easy to make this ahead of time and just reheat, making dinner even easier!

Not all potato soup recipes include carrots, but I’ve included them in this recipe. Carrots add extra nutrition and flavor. They really add a sweetness and a delicious taste to the soup.

When adding carrots, be sure to use a full sized carrot, not the pre-cut baby carrots. A full sized carrot has much more flavor than the baby carrots.

Type of potatoes

I used russet potatoes in this soup. You could also use a red potato or a yukon gold potato. Any of these types of potatoes will work.

Keep in mind, the cooking time for each type of potato will vary.

Step by step directions

  • Begin by cooking up chopped bacon in a soup pot. Remove cooked bacon and leave the bacon grease in pan.
  • Add chopped onions, celery and carrot
