4 Ingredient Potato Soup

4 Ingredient Potato Soup is easy, creamy, and simple.  It has potatoes, onion, bacon, and vegetable broth for extra flavor. Top with cheese and green onions for more flavor!

What you need: - russet potatoes - yellow onion - bacon - vegetable broth - optional toppings

Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Gently add in your potatoes. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until they are very tender.

Step 1

While the potatoes are cooking, add bacon to a large skillet over medium heat. Remove it from the pan once it's become extra crispy.  Keep 1-2 tablespoons of the bacon grease in the pan. 

Step 2

Add in onions and cook until they brown slightly.  Set them aside till the potatoes are done cooking.

Step 3

Drain water from the potatoes. Add 3 cups of vegetable broth, the onions, and any leftover bacon grease.

Step 4

Using an immersion blender, blend until smooth. If you don’t have a blender, you can use a potato masher, but the soup will not be as smooth.

Step 5

Salt and pepper to taste. Top with additional optional toppings and chopped bacon.
