Creamy Potato Soup

Soup, soup and more soup has been on my mind since the weather has been so cold lately.  There truly is nothing better than a hot bowl of soup when it is freezing cold outside! When I come home from work, I just want to wrap up in a warm blanket and eat a yummy bowl of soup! I got this recipe years ago from a co-worker who had made it for a potluck lunch.  What I love about this soup, is that you can pretty much add anything you like!


1/2 cup butter
3 celery stalks (chopped)
3 green onions (chopped)
3 large carrots (grated)
2 cans chicken broth
3 cans Cream of Potato Soup
1 cup frozen hashbrowns
10 oz. cheddar cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 soup can of milk
Salt and Pepper to taste.
(Can add broccoli, chicken, bacon, mushrooms, or the kitchen sink if you like!)

Saute carrots, celery and onion in butter in a large soup pot.
Add hashbrowns and chicken broth and simmer for 15 minutes.
Add soup, milk, and cheese.
Heat thoroughly, stirring often.
Add sour cream by blending thoroughly and heating through.
Add salt and pepper.
Serve in bread bowls if you like!
