This recipe is one of my fall favorites and is from my mother-in-law. It is a FABULOUS potato soup. It is great because it is flexible – you make a base for the soup, and then add your toppings and – VOILA! – dinner of happiness.

Potato Soup

  • 4-6 medium potatoes
  • 1 small onion diced (optional – I’ve made it with and without, and both ways turn out different, but great)
  • 3 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 4 c. water
  • 1/4 c. butter (margarine is fine, but butter is awesome)
  • 1/4 c. flour
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 c. milk
  • Toppings: cheese, broccoli, peas, ham, bacon, etc – whatever you want to add to the soup

1. Boil water and bouillon cubes in a large pot. Add diced potatoes & onion. Bring to boil and simmer.

2. Melt butter in a separate pot. Add flour, salt & pepper and blend until thickens (this will clump up at first – just keep wisking until it “melts” a bit, then thickens a bit).

3. Pour milk into the butter mixture & wisk until thickens again (close to toothpaste consistency).

4. Add butter/milk mixture to the large pot.

5. Add your extras: cheese, broccoli, peas, ham, bacon, etc. This time we did bacon, ham, cheese & peas because that is what we had on hand. I love broccoli too. You can be creative. Just think of what you would love on a potato, and you will probably love it in the soup.

Enjoy!! :)
