Homemade Potato Soup

Homemade Potato Soup is a hearty soup for a cold day. This soup was so good and full of taste. I like that it doesn’t take all day to prepare either. It was ready to go in 45 minutes. Shredded cheese and crumbled bacon are optional but anything that has potatoes, bacon and cheese are amazing in my book!  I like to serve this with sugar cornbread.

    I made this tonight after seeing this earlier. It turned out so good. I added cheese and bacon to the soup and a little as garnish. I can’t believe how simple it was, I may start cooking more!
