Creamy French Style Potato Soup

Creamy French Style Potato Soup

This soup you guys, seriously! It is so good! Comforting, flavorful and just the perfect soup for colder days.
I named it “french style” because of that high amount onions which give this creamy potato soup such an amazing taste.

When I first came up with that recipe, I made it three times in a row because it was that good! I cannot wait for you to try and fall in love with it.

I always try to use fresh herbs, so I did not try out dried ones with this recipe yet but it might tastes decent as well.
