Rainy Days......



So much for the sunny, warm days.....today is cold and rainy...but what better way to turn a frown upside down, than trying out a potato soup recipe I found.....Yummy...


Panera's Cream Cheese Potato Soup

Ingredients

* 4 cups chicken broth
* 4 cups peeled and cubed potatoes
* 1/4 cup minced onion
* 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
* 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
* 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
* 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cut into chunks

Directions

1.

Combine broth, potatoes, onion, and spices.
2.

Boil on medium heat until potatoes are tender.
3.

Smash a few of the potatoes to release their starch for thickening.
4.

Reduce to low heat.
5.

Add cream cheese.
6.

Heat, stirring frequently, until cheese melts.


Okay, it may not be the true Panera's recipe, but it was delicious. Now that my tummy is full, back to reading my material for Wednesday night's class. So, Bon Appetit, my fellow bloggers...
