Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Potato soup is a delicious, hearty soup everyone loves. Easy to make and a wonderful addition to a cool day!

As the days grow short, some faces grow long. But not mine. Every autumn, when the wind turns cold and darkness comes early, I am suddenly happy. It’s time to start making soup again. ~Leslie Newman

Potato soup is a favorite of my family and we can eat this great soup anytime! Easy to make and one your family will absolutely love.  You could double this recipe for a group of people of cut it in half.  This soup keeps well for several days refrigerated and makes such a hearty meal.

Potato Soup Ingredients:

8 to 10 medium potatoes peeled and cut into chunks

1 medium onion peeled and chopped

1 cup chopped celery

1 teaspoon minced garlic (I use the kind you buy already minced in the jar)

1 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon salt

1 stick butter or margarine

1 (12 oz. can) evaporated milk

1/3 cup all purpose flour

Place potatoes, onion, celery, garlic, salt and pepper in a large pot and cover with water.
Bring to a boil, cover and simmer until potatoes are tender. Do not drain.  Add stick of butter. Pour evaporated milk into a bowl and whisk the flour into the milk. Add flour and milk mixture to your soup. Let simmer for about 10 minutes. Garnish with crisp bacon or shredded cheese.  This make about a gallon of soup. Enjoy! Soup is great with cornbread muffins
