This recipe is from my FIL. It's very simple to make, and it's delicious. My family loves it topped with cheese and crumbled bacon.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place potatoes in a large pot and add enough water to just cover them.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  3. Cook until fork-tender.
  4. While potatoes are cooking, saute celery and onions in margarine in a separate pan until both are tender and onion is translucent.
  5. Set aside.
  6. Drain the water from the potatoes until only 4/5ths of the potatoes are covered.
  7. Mash a few of the potatoes and mix them with the rest of the soup to thicken.

  9. Heat on medium until heated through.
