Creamy Potato Soup


I used to love stopping by Panera Bread in New York . Especially winter time and having their yummy creamy potato soup. Last week I came up with my own version of this soup:) I believe that the carrot gave extra benefit and taste to it.

chicken broth
potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 small carrot, cubed
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese or sour cream (room temperature)
Pepperoni (cubed) or Bacon/ cooked and crumbled/ 3 slices or more (optional, but makes it really good, especially pepperoni and bacon lovers like my son)

Combine  chicken broth, potatoes, carrot cubes and spices in a small pot. Boil until potatoes and carrots are tender. If you like your soup smooth, here is a little tip: Smash some potato cubes for thickening.  Add cream cheese. Keep stirring until the cheese melts. Ready to serve. Sprinkle a little pepperoni or bacon over each bowl of soup. Extra pepperoni this time for Aria!!!
