Happy Friday Y’all!!!
As it gets colder, I start making soups & stews like some mad crazy lady… no lie… my freezer stocks up because there’s only 3 of us so it works out & we have soups & stews coming out of ears but we are just now getting started in the cold season so I don’t have anything saved from last season, blah blah…
So- Bubba & I planned a Low Country Boil for the surprise supper party & I think we may have over bought the red potatoes because I had purchased 15lbs of red potatoes & had 12.5 red potatoes left (cooked of course) and the Hubs said what are you gonna do with all these potatoes??? I say that’s easy, potato soup!
So below is my “Wing it Wild Woman Red Potato Soup” recipe!!! Hope y’all Enjoy!!!
12.5 red potatoes- cooked, peeled, sliced, & cubed in big stock pot.
1 medium onion- chopped & sauteed with (1) TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil in small pan.
2 garlic cloves- minced & sauteed with (1) TBSP Butter in same small pan along with onion.
Pour onions & garlic in big potato pot.
Add (1) cup of half & half.
Add (3) cups of chicken broth.
Add 1/2 stick of melted butter.
Add 1/2 cup of sharp cheddar cheese & 1/2 cup of Monterrey jack cheese & bring to a simmer.
I fried a couple of pieces of bacon to crumble into the soup at the end & I saved some Monterrey jack cheese & some sharp cheddar cheese to sprinkle on top in each bowl.
Salt & Pepper to taste of course.
I froze the leftovers in a gallon size bag (probably could have done it in a quart size bag) but this is another to add to the freezer to put up for another rush dinner… I LOVE being able to pull things out of my freezer & I love my crock pot!!!
Happy Friday Y’all!
