I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Potato Soup

Potato Soup

I’ll be the first to admit that potato soup sounds boring. But this one isn’t. The red onions help it taste great, plus it’s way fun because your guests get to customize it themselves with a choice of cool toppings. Think baked potato - but way better. It’s so good, just serve a salad with it and you’re done.


  • 2 big baking potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 large red onion, diced
  • 3 cups chicken broth, diced - just kidding
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 3 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • Kosher salt & fresh ground black pepper


  1. Put potatoes in large pot, cover with chicken broth and simmer until soft, about 15 minutes
  2. While it cooks, saute onions in butter and cayenne until softened
  3. Add about 3/4 of the onions to the pot along with the whipping cream and parsley
  4. Continue cooking the remainder of the onions until crispy and blackened - but not burnt
  5. Simmer soup on low about 5 more minutes until it thickens a bit
  6. With back of large spoon, mash some of the potatoes in the pot while it’s simmering (this will help to thicken) - season well with salt & pepper
  7. When the soup is the thickness you want, serve in bowls with a selection of the following toppings - add any and all you’d like:
