Chef Dad: Mashed Potato Soup!


Admit it, it’s happened before. Your wife asks you to make supper for the kids and you’re at a loss. You end up tossing together some KD with hot dogs and call it a day. Not all dads are as fruitful in the kitchen as most moms are and it can be overwhelming when it’s your turn to provide a decent meal for the whole family. Well, have no fear. If you can make KD then you can make this awesome potato soup (in about the same amount of time, too). It may not be one of those fancy schmancy butternut squash soup recipes you see on the cover of magazines but it’s foolproof, easy, and so, so good!

What You’ll Need:

*1 Large Potato per family member

*1/4 Cup of Chopped Onion per family member

*1/4 Cup of Chopped Celery per family member

*1/4-1/2 Cup of Milk (2% is best but any will do)

*Sprinkle Salt and Pepper

How to Make It:

1)      Peel and chop potatoes into small cubes

2)      Throw all three veggies into a pot and add water (don’t quite cover ingredients)

3)      Bring to a boil and then use a masher to mush it all into clumps

4)      Add milk until you get a consistency you like

5)      Douse with salt and pepper


If you can’t manage to make this recipe then it may be best to just avoid the kitchen altogether… and probably sharp objects, too. A nice, decent meal for your family honestly couldn’t get any easier or simpler. Peel, chop, boil, mash. Done. The kids will love it and you’re sure to impress the wife. Mashed Potato Soup and brownie points for dessert!


Note: Maybe it’s a dad/guy thing, but as I was eating this I couldn’t help but think how bacon would be a wicked ingredient to add. Not only would it give this vegetable soup a sprinkle of meat, but it could also help add the much-needed salt taste. Also? BACON.


There you go, fellas! Another Dad Recipe to put under your belt. As far as potato soup recipes go, this one is a keeper. You could even break it out for company, especially if you add in that bacon I mentioned. MMM yum, bacon. If you’ve tried this wicked easy Dad Recipe, feel free to comment and share!
