The next time you get invited to a pot luck supper, whip up a big batch of this incredible potato soup. It's thick, rich, and comforting, especially on a cold evening when it gets dark so early, and you just want to snuggle under the blankets and sleep until Spring.

If you're feeling ambitious, or it's just too cold to leave the warmth and comfort of the kitchen, double or triple the batch and freeze the extra. Then when that big storm hits, and you don't want to leave the house to go to the grocery store, you can pull this healthy potato soup recipe out of the freezer and feel good that you're serving a healthy, hearty meal to your family.

Once the soup is ready to serve, sprinkle some bacon bits on top of each bowl for a little indulgence and flavor boost that won't add inches to your middle.
