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