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!

  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.
