Today was the first real “Fall feeling” day this year and I thought it called for some Potato Soup!
I’m always trying to perfect my recipe and usually do something different each time I make it. Well, today I just may have gotten right!
I combined a couple of recipes from the Internet and my mom’s favorite recipe and I think it turned out delicious! The kids even loved it!
Try it out…I think you’ll like it!
4 cups potatoes – peeled and cubed
5 cups water
3 chicken bouillon cubes
1/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced celery
1/4 teaspoon each white pepper, black, pepper and salt
5 tablespoons butter
5 tablespoons flour
2 cups 2% milk
* Combine the potatoes, celery, onion, bouillon cubes and water in a stockpot. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in white and black pepper & salt to taste.
* In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour with a fork, and cook, stirring constantly until thick, about 1 minute. Slowly stir in milk, whisking out any lumps. Continue stirring over medium-low heat until thick.
* Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook soup until heated through. Serve immediately. Top with shredded cheddar cheese if desired.
