Simple Cream of Potato Soup

This is a pure potato with cream soup.  I've made potato soup for years and have added bacon fat among other ingredients.  Today's recipe is simple no bacon fat only potatoes, water, cream, and oh-so-delicious!
Chuck had to have some dental work so I had to come up with something good and filling for him to eat that wouldn't cause any damage to his mouth. 
This virtually spur-of-the-moment soup fits the need and is surprisingly excellent.  I will make it again.

This soup is fairly light the only thing besides the potato that is in any way heavy is the heavy cream and which is used sparingly.


4 large potatoes
1 small onion or half large
Heavy Whipping Cream
Salt & Pepper


Wash, peel and cut potatoes and onions into cubes
Cover generously with water
Cook until fork tender

  1. A favorite in our house too! I have never added dill! Going to try this!

    1. I guess I should have called it cream of potato but it was pretty good. I love dill in a lot of things.

  2. It looks good, I like potato soup a lot.

    1. I love potatoes anyway you fix them. Guess that's why I have 15 pounds I need to take off..
