"Creamy potato and egg soup. Comforting on a cold day or night by the fire. My mother made this often for our family growing up. My husband and I love it as comfort food."

    A ver "homey" tasting soup. It's basic and nothing fancy, but it's really great. I loved the bits of hard-boiled eggs. I reduced the cooking butter to 2 tbsp and used fat free evapoated milk to cut some fat calories. I did float a pat of butter on top to serve. Thanx for sharing!

    Great soup! I usually make it like this but I add finely shopped carrot with the celery and onion. I have never used egg and it is a nice change!

    Very good soup! All I did was add some garlic powder and thyme.
