Comfort Food for Winter: Potato Soup & Easy Soft Pretzel Recipe

Thank you Idahoan® Steakhouse® Soups for sponsoring this post. Stay warm this winter with a cozy bowl of soup!

One thing I love about the long, winter season is the plethora of delicious foods to enjoy in the cold weather. There’s nothing like comfort food for winter. It makes me feel warm and cozy just thinking about my go to meal! What warms you up better than a cup of hot and creamy potato soup with soft pretzel bites? Mmm, I can almost taste it, it’s that good!

Last week, I made a batch of my soft pretzels and paired it with a cup of delicious potato soup from Idahoan® Steakhouse® Soups. Their soups are flavorful like the taste of slow-cooked, restaurant quality soup that you can make in less than five minutes right in your own kitchen. I love several of their delicious flavor like loaded potato and creamy potato. Idahoan Steakhouse soups are seasoned just right with rich cheeses that offer a creamy taste in every bite. It’s the perfect meal to eat with soft pretzels! Comfort food at its best during the coldest months of the year. It’s my favorite flavor combo right now.
