This yummy meal is great for cold days or just days when you want a comfort food! This recipe comes from my Mammaw....I love you Mammaw!


  1. Start by boiling potatoes until fork tender.
  2. When potatoes are done, strain out the water and add butter.
  3. When butter is melted, add flour. Stir gently to make a paste between butter and flour. The paste will coat the potatoes.
  4. Add Milk.
  5. Gently stir. Allow the pot to boil. When it reaches boil, turn down to simmer.
  6. Simmer on low till soup thickens.
  7. Salt and Pepper to taste.

I made this soup over the weekend (3-10-12) We both said that it was the best potato soup we have ever eaten. What I did a little different was cooked up my onions, celery and diced up ham in about 3tbs of butter until tender as my potatoes were cooking.. plus I added garlic salt. It was a delicious meal. For crackers we used HOT AND SPICY CHEESE-IT... OUT OF THIS WORLD.... YUMMY!

Thank you for posting this recipe. Growing up, whenever any of the 5 of us kids were sick, mom always made us potato soup. And we would start to feel better. I couldn't remember how she made it. Did she drain all water then add the milk? She never added flour though, so it wasn't a thick soup. She has recently passed, and wished I could remember, cause it will make hubby & I feel better, both being sick, and make me feel close to mom. So thank you - I remember it all now - except the flour. I do remember I use to sometimes add ham and maybe onion sometimes for hubby. I will be making this shortly, so thank you again for giving me a piece of mom. Patti M. Jasper, GA

This was amazing. I have been craving some potato soup for the past few days. What I did a little different was I added some garlic salt, cilantro, and basil. Just fantastic!
