Homemade Potato Soup Mix Recipe

Instant mashed potatoes are a great time saver. This recipe for a homemade potato soup mix gives you an easy way to have a cup of potato soup in minutes. You can mix up a batch of the dry ingredients in the amounts shown below or even double the mix.

Potato Soup Mix Recipe

  • 1½ cups nonfat dry milk
  • 1 tablespoon granulated chicken bouillon
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Mix all of these dry ingredients in a large bowl.Store your homemade potato soup mix in an airtight container. This recipe makes 7 one-cup servings.

To make one cup of creamy potato soup, just add ½ cup of your potato soup mix to one cup of very hot water. If you like cheesy soup, just top with a bit of shredded cheese. Other toppings might like include crumbled bacon or croutons.

A batch of your own “instant” potato soup mix is a great gift. Put it in a pretty jar, add a ribbon and share!
