    velvet_sj's Note:

    As always, one of my mother's recipes. As the title suggests, this is not a chunky potato soup, which I guess is more traditional, but I much prefer this mashed version. I use 2% milk when I make it, but mom always used whole milk or half n half, and yes it will be even more rich with either of those, but it's great with even skim milk. I am guessing a bit with some of the amounts, as I've never actually measured anything when making it, but it's a very flexible recipe. One other tip I can think of is about any leftovers - this will get really thick when it's cold, and doesn't really melt when you reheat - just thin it out with additional milk as you reheat. Hope you enjoy.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6-8

    Yield:

    bowls

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Peel potatoes, and cut into small cubes. Place in soup pot with onions and celery - add enough water to cover everything. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Cook, with lid on, until everything is tender. Drain - I usually reserve the cooking liquid in case I want to use some of it, instead of all the milk.
    2. 2
      Mash using hand mixer (you can use a potato masher if you prefer). Add the butter, and a little salt and pepper.
    3. 3
      Return to low heat, and start adding milk, about a half cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. You might not need to add all the milk, or you might need to add extra - or use the cooking liquid, to get it to the consistency you want. It all depends on the size of the potatoes you used, and personal preference.
    4. 4
      Continue to cook over low heat for about 30 minutes - adding additional milk or cooking liquid if necessary. If soup seems too thin, continue cooking, uncovered until it's how you want it.
    5. 5
      Serve hot, with crumbled bacon, grated cheese and green onion as garnishes.
