Old Fashioned Potato Soup

Another recipe from the 1980 version of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania that was given to me by my Nana when I became an adult. This recipe was submitted to the cookbook by the Tallman Family. They run a potato processing plant in town. So, it make sense they submitted a potato recipe. As with so many of these recipes, they didn't specify how many servings it made so I am guessing.

Potato soup is my favorite soup and this is a great variation to the usual potato soup. I used low-sodium chicken broth in place of the water and increased the amount to about 3 cups. I also had to increase the amount of milk because it became very thick after adding the flour mixture. Once the soup was heated through after adding the milk, I added approximately 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese. Yum! Made for April, 2009 Bevy Tag.

This is pure comfort food! Great flavors. I only used about 1/2 of the flour-egg mixture because the soup was getting quite thick. I used Hillshire's Smoked Turkey Kielbasa. This is a great recipe for those nights when you want soup, but don't want to spend all day making it. Peeling the potatoes was the only real "work" :) Made for Spring 2009 PAC.
