Quick and Easy Potato Soup

This is a good soup for any chilly day or night. And it's quick, easy to prepare and inexpensive. It only takes about fifteen minutes of preparation, depending on how quick you are at peeling potatoes. The cook time is twenty to thirty minutes depending on how you like your potatoes.

  • 4 russet potatoes
  • 1/2 bacon bits
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp chives
  • 1 tsp salt (I prefer garlic salt.)

Peel and chop the potatoes. Add all the ingredients to a pan and cook over medium heat. When the soup starts to boil turn to medium low. Boil for 15 to 20 minutes.

As a cream based soup this dish does not keep well, but my family has never had trouble finishing off the whole pot.
