Ingredients:

4 medium potatoes
1 medium onion
2 garlic cloves
2 tbsp butter
4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth
1 cup of heavy cream
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
Chives for garnish (optional)
Grated cheese for garnish
Bacon bits for garnish

Directions:

Peel and dice the potatoes into small cubes. Set them aside.
In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat.
Add the diced onion and minced garlic.
Sauté until the onion becomes translucent and aromatic.
Toss the diced potatoes into the pot, stirring to combine with the sautéed aromatics.
Pour in the chicken or vegetable broth, ensuring the potatoes are fully submerged.
Bring the mixture to a gentle boil.
Reduce the heat to low and let the soup simmer until the potatoes are tender and can be easily pierced with a fork.
Using an immersion blender, carefully blend the soup until smooth and creamy.
Alternatively, transfer the soup to a countertop blender and blend in batches, then return the mixture to the pot.
Pour in the heavy cream, stirring to incorporate it into the soup.
Continue simmering for a few more minutes to meld the flavors.
Season the soup with salt and black pepper, adjusting the amounts to your taste preferences.
Ladle the creamy potato soup into bowls.
Garnish with chopped chives, grated cheese, and bacon bits for added flavor and visual appeal.
