    Annacia's Note:

    This traditional soup used to be made with leak and oatmeal and has been served in Ireland for generations. Most cooks now prefer to combine leeks with potatoes, however, to make this perennial favorite. This recipe is also called Brotchan Roy meaning "A broth fit for a king". The word "roy" is derived from Ri - the Irish word for King. Savory hot biscuits are a fine accompaniment for soup. Add the herb seasoning of your choice to your biscuit mix before adding the liquid.

      I thought I had already reviewed this! Sorry it took me so long. This potato soup was delicious. Really enjoyed the leeks, onion and celery. I made 1/3 of the recipe, and found myself wishing that I had made a full batch! Thanks for sharing. Made for Rookie Tag game.

      Delicious, healthy (cut down on the butter), easy and very tasty - great soup! I used homemade turkey stock instead of chicken but that's the only replacement. I even really liked it before adding the last 2 cups of milk! Made for Went To The Market tag game. Thanks Annacia! :)

      I made half the recipe, but two of us polished off the pot. I used evaporated milk instead of plain milk, so did not bother with the half and half, but did add a dollop of sour cream as a garnish. No celery, so used some celery flakes. A really nice soup, and an added bonus is that is uses pantry ingredients.
