This is good, quick to make. I only used 2 tbsp of the butter to eliminate some fat and added white pepper. This is a mild comforting and filling soup.
It's okay for a base. It needs some help. Next time I'll saute the onions in butter first, maybe with some garlic. I added garlic salt to this batch and used heavy cream, as that's what I had on hand. I substituted some of the butter for bacon drippings because DH heard "potato soup" and immediately asked if it had bacon in it. He also topped his serving with sharp cheddar.
loved this soup very easy to make with stuff you usually have around.
Very filling, this is going in my keeper file for cheap and easy dinner. I sauteed the onion in bacon fat, added a bit of celery, and otherwise kept the recipe the same. Served it with homemade rolls. thanks for sharing!
This was a hit with the family. I cut out some of the salt and added some Ms. Dash for additional flavor.
I enjoyed this soup as it was my first time making potatoe soup. After cooking, I found it to be a bit bland. I added in 1/2 tsp of cumin, more salt and pepper, and 1 T garlic. DH added in 1/4 tsp hot pepper flakes to his for zing. I willmake this again often! I also used ham chunks to giv it more substance for a dinner with salad and homemade bread. I did use the potatoe flakes to thicken it as it is brothy and we did want a thicker soup. Thank you for a new soup recipe to add to my weekly roatation.
This was so yummy! Make sure you salt it to taste at the beginning as stated--my potatoes were a little bland, but I know it was because I didn't salt until near the end of cooking. I actually used a bunch of shaved ham I had in the fridge, cut up. We garnished with some cheddar cheese and sour cream along with our standard crackers. Thanks for the great new standard at our house!
Easy and quick to make and excellent for a winter evening meal in front of the fire.
Another way to thicken potaoto soup is use instant patato flakes .It works great!! I use it when i make my potato soup .
