potato soup recipe @cleverlyinspired (1)

Spring is around the corner…I can feel it. This potato soup is perfect for busy baseball nights…or just a quiet weekend evening at home. It cooks up quick and reheats nicely too. Pair it with a hearty salad and you are good to go! Pssss…this recipe is low calorie too….and you won’t even realize all the fat that is missing:)

An immersion blender will make this job really easy. If you haven’t picked one up yet you can use a blender…just do it in batches and be careful. I like to keep the soup in the pot…cover loosely with a piece of foil and place the immersion blender in from the side. Blend away…with no mess!

Of course….a bit of left over bacon…with some freshly shredded cheddar never hurt anyone…am I right?!?!
