This is a fabulous potato soup recipe. I have been making this for years. It is an recipe from a restaurant called The Machine Shed. I am always asked to make it by my family as well as for big gatherings. We also have it on Halloween every year before the kids go Trick-O-Treating. Our local store makes individual bread bowls that are orange and look like pumpkins. They love the soup in these festive bread bowls. It is a bit of a time consuming recipe to make, but well worth it once in awhile.
One of St. Louis's favorite soup recipes was recently printed in the Post-Dispatch. I remember going to St. Louis when I was young and my family going into the department store's restaurant for this famous soup. Enjoy! Famous-Barr's French Onion Soup
Have not tried this yet.
The recipe says two summer squash I am not sure just how much this would be since they do vary in size so it was suggested to me that around 1 - 2 cups should be Ok and since most veggie soups are so easily mixed around with how many veggies are added. I would leave this up to a persons individual tastes
This is my favorite recipe for potato soup. It's a copycat of the one they use to serve at the St. Louis Bread Company (Panera). The recipe originally called for shredding your potatoes, but I never could get them to cook that way. I know they should cook faster, but I never could get it to work.
I found this recipe in Coastal Living. It calls for Pernod which is a licorice-flavored liqueur, but I would think you can leave it out if you wish. I also think you can substitute clams for the scallops.
This soup is the best! My mom owns a catering business and her chef makes this for the cafe. Flavorful and hearty, even has a bit of a kick to it. Serve with warm crusty bread...a great meal on a fall/winter day.
