    CookinAnneS's Note:

    This recipe was given to me by a very sweet lady who happened to be the mother of an old boyfriend. This is the best potato soup I have ever eaten and everyone I've served it to loves it. My kids beg me to make this for dinner.

      Chop onions and finely grate carrots.
    3. 3
      Add these three ingredients to a pot of with enough water to cover. Put over med. heat till it comes to a soft boil.
    4. 4
      Add potatoes.
    5. 5
      Add enough water to cover potatoes.
    6. 6
      Add the parsley, sweet basil, and salt.
    7. 7
      Cook over med. heat until potatoes are done.
    8. 8
      In a separate pot, melt the margarine.
    9. 9
      Slowly add the flour stirring constantly until it's thick.
    10. 10
      Slowly add milk, a little bit at a time. Keep stirring as it becomes very thick, like mashed potatoes. Add the salt and pepper.
    11. 11
      When it's so think it looks like mashed potatoes, it's ready. Add this mixture, gradually to the soup pot and cook until thick.
    12. 12
      Slice the smoked sausage at the end and add to the soup pot.
    13. 13
      This soup is even better when it's eaten the next day. It will be thicker, you may have to thin it a little then. You can also use crumbled bacon instead of the smoked sausage.
    14. 14
      You cannot freeze this.

      We liked this too... and that's saying something as most of my family aren't big soup fans. This is a thick satisfying soup that went a long way to filling the seemingly hollow legs of the male members of this family :) I'd make one small change: I added a cooked, thinly sliced dutch Rookworst to this and everyone agreed that it would have been even better with more Rookworst added. I used fresh basil and parsley and I'm saving this to my handwritten cookbook as it's a keeper. Please see my rating system for a welll deserved 4 stars. Thanks !!!

      The first time I made this I followed the recipe to a T, but found there were just too many onions. The Basil and Carrots however were sooo... yummy!! The next time I made it, I adjusted for the onion fiasco and it was absolutely delicious. I also use Bacon instead of Sausage.
