Cheddar Broccoli Potato Soup with Homemade Herb Croutons

December has been a busy month and we are just now halfway through it. Two birthdays have been thrown, work Christmas party, school Christmas programs, school Christmas parties and I still need to finish the shopping. I’m running out of time yet I’m still piling things up on my TO DO list.

This past weekend after throwing a birthday party we came home starving and ready to eat. I cubed some day old french bread and tossed it with olive oil, garlic and herbs and baked it in the oven. It was the perfect side to this easy 5 MINUTE Idahoan® Premium Steakhouse® Cheddar Broccoli Potato Soup. Unlike other dry soups that take more than fifteen minutes to prepare by stove, with Idahoan® Premium Steakhouse Potato Soup, you can conveniently just add water and prepare restaurant-quality soup in your kitchen in just five minutes.

Cheddar Broccoli Potato Soup with Homemade Herb Croutons

This cheddar broccoli potato soup is made from REAL Idaho® red potatoes. Idahoan® was born in 1960 and has since expanded from mashed potatoes to casseroles to these tasty Premium Steakhouse Potato Soups.

The homemade herb croutons added a nice crunchy texture to the soup. They were easy to prepare and most of the ingredients should be in your pantry. This meal came together in less than 20 minutes and it helped feed our hungry family. So when you are in need of a quick, comforting, warm meal, turn to Idahoan® Premium Steakhouse® Potato Soups.
