this is the absolute best potato soup recipe that I
have made...it is a recipe from my Aunt who has been
cooking "Southern" for at least 50 years...
4 cups water
2 chicken bouillon cubes
2 T parsley
1 tsp basil
1 celery stalk
1 chopped onion
the bacon drippings from 4 slices of cooked bacon
2 T flour
1 1/2 cups milk (or half and half to make richer)
6-7 good sized potatoes
In a pot, I saute the onions in the bacon drippings
until limp. Next I add the water, seasonings and
potatoes and boil until the potatoes are tender. Then
scoop out a bit of the hot water that the potatoes
have cooked in and dissolve your flour in it. Pour
flour into the soup along with your milk. Let simmer
until ready to eat. I also have a broccoli cornbread
recipe that is WONDERFUL with any soup...
1 stick margarine
2 pks of 17 oz Jiffy Cornbread mix
1 10 oz frozen chopped broccoli (thawed but not
1 med chopped onion
1 10 oz cottage cheese
1/2 to 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Melt margarine in 9x13 cake pan. Mix other
ingredients except cheddar cheese. Pour mixture over
margarine..then sprinkle with cheddar. 375 for 30
minutes. This is fabulous. Liz K

Two cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Saute onions in margarine. Add soup, milk and potatoes and heat through. Stir in cheese and heat until cheese is melted.
I go easy on the milk, only 2.5 or 3 cups, so the soup is thicker.
It definitely costs more than $2.50 to make but it does make a large potfull.

My dad used to make a soup called ham chowder where it was basically mashed potatoes and ham mixed together and some other ingredients I don't remember... I miss it so bad. Thank you so much, I've been wanting a soup like his for a long time now.
