Creamy Homemade Potato Soup

Servings: 4
Author: Shelly


  • 3-4 Potatoes chopped
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Oil
  • 1 cup Milk
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup Cheese shredded
  • 3 tablespoon Fresh Chives chopped


  • Place chopped potatoes into a saucepan and covered with water. Boil until the potatoes are softened. Drain the water off and set potatoes aside.
  • Place the chopped onion in the same saucepan you cooked the potatoes in. Add the oil. Saute until the onions are brown and softened. You can skip this step but I think it mellows the flavor of the onions and adds more flavor.
  • Add the cooked potatoes back into the pan with the browned onions.
  • Add the milk and salt and pepper.
  • Heat and stir until warmed through. To make the soup thicker smash a few of the potatoes on the side of the pot and stir them in.
  • Place the soup into bowls and sprinkle with cheese and chives if desired.
  • Serve warm and enjoy!
