A Family Favorite

My family begs for this soup.  I usually only make it once or twice a year because it used to be a 6 hour process in the slow cooker.  Now with the Instant Pot, this recipe takes less than 10 minutes to prep and cooks in about 15 minutes.  It is awesome and I love my Instant Pot.

My mom created this recipe several years back and now when the weather changes, you can bet we are all making this at home.  We all do it just slightly different, but the end result is always incredible and oh so creamy!

Easy Instant Pot Potato Soup

This is seriously so easy to make and only takes a little prep!  First you need to brown the sausage.  I use the saute feature on the Instant Pot and this is done in about 5 minutes.

How to saute in instant pot

While the meat is sauteing, slice up your potatoes and use a food processor to chop the carrots, celery and onions.  You can also do these by hand or keep them in larger pieces.  My kids just do not like to eat them unless I finely chop them.  The soup tastes great either way.

Once that is done, add the chicken broth and spices and stir together.  Make sure to bring the meat up from the bottom of the pan and to really get a good mix together.

Simple directions to make potato soup

Add the cream of mushroom soup.  I prefer to use the condensed version to making my own simply because of time.  It will taste good regardless if you make your own or if you use the condensed version.

Mix it all together, set the Instant Pot to 15 minutes on medium and seal.  Let the soup cook and allow it a 5 minute natural pressure release then quick release.

How to make potato soup

Add the heavy whipping cream before serving.  Do this slowly and stir as you are adding it.  Serve topped with cheese or without.  My kids will eat bowls and bowls of this.  This recipe makes enough to serve about 8 adults, so we can make it and have enough for 2 meals.  It also freezes very well and reheats great!
