I love potato soup. I also have mashed potatoes in the fridge frequently. When I mash my potatoes I always add butter and sour cream. They are delicious that way. When I made my potato soup I decided to use them instead of new potatoes. It was so good so now I always make my potato soup this way.
You can use it as a stuffing for flounder, or a dressing to compliment fish, shrimp or oyster or in a casserole dish or ramekins, toped with bread crumbs and a dash or grated Romano cheese. Don't make it too bready--that would be a mortal sin!
There are a lot of recipes out there for beer battered shrimp but this is the best one I have found. Cook your shrimp a few at a time so your grease doesn't cool too much and NEVER overcook your shrimp. The recipe calls for vegetable oil but I use peanut oil.
Thank you Cindy for a wonderful cake. I'm not a big sweet eater so almost didn't try it. She sent some home with us and I got a 1/2 slice---and went back for more---and went back for more again. I finally got the recipe.
I live on an island in Florida and have a lot of fresh crabmeat in the summer. This is one of my families favorite soups. Its creamy and spicy and definitely NOT low calorie. I have never tried it but I think it would be good with shrimp too.
A simple sauce that tastes exotic, like a gourmet recipe. You can save the sauce in a jar in the frig and have it ready for the next time you want to make this or thicken it with a little cornstarch to serve over rice or potatoes.
