Potato Soup

I LOVE Potato Soup. This is mom's recipe.

2 C. water
2 bouillon cubes (I use the chicken flavor)
3 C. potatoes (4-5 potatoes) peeled & cut
Boil the potatoes about 20-30 minutes, or until soft

I like lots of potatoes & I usually put enough water to cover the potatoes.

In another pan:
melt 1/4 C. margarine
add 1/4 C. flour. stir
add 1 C. Milk & 1 C. half & half
bring to a boil.
add this mixture to the potatoes.

I like to add some ham to it as well.

Add: garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper-to taste


  1. nice! seeing how its currently in the single digits... with a 'feels like -15*' soup is sounding PERFECT right now.

  2. I love potato soup, too! I make it with carrots, onion, and either ham or bacon. No half and half, but cheddar cheese. Mine is usually a very thick, chunky consistency...more like a stew. Sometimes I make it soupier cause I think Ryan prefers it that way.
