Fall Comfort Foods: Creamy Potato Soup.

This is one of my favorite recipes to make when it's cold out. It is sooo good with a fresh baked French baguette. I grew up with a chunky potato soup my mom used to make, which I still love, but this one is a little different and since my kids aren't big on food with chunks, it fits our family better.

Creamy Potato Soup:

{Please excuse my chicken scratch handwriting}

cook onions in hot oil for about 5-10 min or until tender.

dice the potatoes while onions cook.

whisk together the flour and milk, then add to the onions and stir for 5 min.

Add the potatoes and chicken broth, stir.

bring to a boil and cook for 20 min or until potatoes are tender.

with a ladle scoop out portions of the soup into a blender, and puree. {you might want to have another large bowl or pot nearby to collect the pureed portions until the main pot is empty}.

pour the pureed soup back into the main pot and add the Swiss cheese, salt, and pepper.

once the cheese is melted serve in bowls with a big chunk of bread!

I tend to serve this soup with turkey balls {instead of meatballs}. They're a good combination together. Enjoy!
