This is a delicious easy to make potato soup recipe. I make this with a ham stock, made from boiling a ham bone. But it turns out well if you use a pre-packaged chicken soup stock or water and bouillion to taste. It goes really nicely with some nice fresh buns or bread. We never have any leftovers.

A nice hearty soup with a lot of flavor. I substituted turkey bacon for the ham and used a combo of chicken and beef stock instead of ham stock, I don't think I could even tell a difference. A very easy soup with just some chopping and stirring, thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for PAC fall 08.

- 1⁄2-1 cup diced celery
- 1⁄2 cup diced onion
