    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.

    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!

I made this account back in 2001, when the site was called "Recipezaar". A lot has changed in my life since then. My kids are all grown and I try to eat a low-carb lifestyle now. Some of my older recipes were handed down from my grandmother. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I have. Current recipes that I post will mostly be low carb or keto.
