Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Wash, peel, and dice potatoes.
  2. Place in large pot, and barely cover with water.
  3. Add some salt and pepper.
  4. Place on stove, put heat on high, let boil.
  5. Once boiling, turn heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
  6. After 15 minutes, add 3 cups of milk and 2 tablespoons butter/margarine.
  7. Set heat to medium and heat until hot. Watch the pot, do not let it boil. The milk has a low flashpoint, and if you aren't watching it will bubble all over your stove. Just let it barely start boiling.
  8. Take half of soup and place in blender, with half roll/package of crackers. Blend, pour into large bowl, set aside.
  9. Take other half of soup, place in blender, with other half of crackers. Blend, return to pot, add first half.
  10. Stir together, salt and pepper to taste, serve hot.
  11. Enjoy!

I made this recipe without the crackers, and added some basil and oregano to it. It had a good flavor but it was very thin, it wasn't like soup though, just milk with the potatoes sunken to the bottom. I would recommend dicing the potatoes into VERY small pieces and adding some sort of thickening agent.

I made this with sweet potatos for my kids. It was easy and quick plus they loved it but it was a bit sweet (could be the sweet potatos). We'll experiment some more.
