    Default Potato Soup

    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
    pepper
    1 tsp basil
    season salt
    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
    drained)
    1 med chopped onion
    1 10 oz cottage cheese
    4 eggs
    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

    Found this recipe. I haven't tried it.

    Cheesy Potato Soup

    Portions: 4-6

    Ingredients:
    3 cloves garlic, pressed
    butter/margarine
    2 cups vegetable broth
    2 cups water
    5 Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1/2 inch cubes
    1 cup milk
    2 cups sharp cheddar
    Salt, pepper to taste
    Diced scallions, shredded cheese, and veggie bacon to garnish

    Instructions:
    1. Saute the garlic in butter for 3-4 minutes. Add broth and water and heat to
    boiling.

    2. Add potatoes and boil for 10 minutes, or until potatoes are soft.

    3. Remove all potatoes from broth, and place 1/2 of potatoes in a blender.
    Reserve other half of potatoes in a dish.

    4. Add milk to the potatoes and puree in the blender until smooth. Add the
    blended potatoes to the broth, stir, and heat through on medium heat.

    5. Using a whisk, slowly add cheese, stirring constantly, until it has melted
    through. Add remaining potatoes.

    6. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot topped with scallions, cheese, and veggie
    bacon bits.

    Here's how I make cheesy potato soup. My sister sent me the recipe and called it "Stuffed Spud Soup" We all love it!

    One 2 lb. package shredded hash browns, thawed
    One can condensed cream of chicken soup
    One small onion, chopped (about half a cup)
    1/2 cup margerine
    3 to 4 cups milk
    salt & pepper to taste
    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.
