On bitter, chilly days, nothing fits the bill better than a warming bowl of potato soup. Potato soup gets a refreshing remake with the aid of easy and affordable ingredient swaps. The once classic potato soup has a zippy new spin with these five easy potato soup recipes.

German Potato Soup

German Potato Soup
Potato soup is one of those classic dishes that everyone has their own slightly different recipe for. And when it starts to get cold, dark, and dreary outside nothing sounds better than a big bowl of steaming soup. When I came across this German variation I knew I had to try it! Having German roots myself, I was a little surprised that I had never heard of this one, but it’s definitely going to be a staple in my winter recipe collection.

Dill Pickle Potato Soup

Dill Pickle Potato Soup
I’m not going to lie I have at least one pickle most days. I can’t help it: there’s just something about the sour and tangy flavor that I crave. Are you the kind of person who is always asking your friends if they’re going to eat their pickle when you go out for sandwiches (guilty person here)? Is your love of pickles so strong that people buy you pickles for Christmas (also me)? Well then I’ve got just the soup for you. This dill pickle potato soup is perfection in a bowl. It might sound a bit odd, but trust me when I say it’s darn good. I might even prefer this soup over regular potato soup.

Pumpkin and Potato Soup


Pumpkins are special because we really only see them for a few weeks out of every year, hence all the “pumpkin spice_______(fill-in-the-blank)” just before the first fall leaves begin to drop. We love a good pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving and roasted squash is often found as a side dish on our dinner table. Not to be forgotten is another favorite category of food during the fall: soups. So, naturally, we’ve got to have a pumpkin soup recipe in our fall and winter cooking.

Granny’s Potato Soup


It feels like just about nothing is worse than when you’re really looking forward to a recipe and it just doesn’t turn out the way you’d hoped. At least, when you’re working away in the kitchen and chopping veggies and standing over a hot stove…when it doesn’t turn out it feels like it was all for naught, which we hate! Well here’s one recipe you’ll never have to worry about!

Slow Cooker Cajun Potato Soup


It’s been a while since we brought you a delicious(ly easy) slow cooker recipe and it was high-time we changed that. While it’s simple enough to throw a bunch of ingredients in the trusty slow cooker and call it a day, it takes a bit more finesse to make a dish that tastes amazing and that you actually can’t wait to eat. Once we’ve made it and get requests for it multiple times a week after that, we know we’re onto something good…like this Cajun potato soup!
