Recipe by Mike McCartney
My version of potato soup.
Top Review by **Tinkerbell**
Great recipe to have on hand. Dinner was ready in 30 minutes. I didn't have celery so added a dash of celery salt & about 1 Tablespoon of garlic. I needed to use 3 1/2 cups of potato flakes to thicken it enough for my family's taste as we like soup a little on the thick side. We enjoyed this recipe a lot & I'll be keeping it handy. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Mike! Made & enjoyed for New Kids On The Block tag game (newly posted recipes).
