This is one of the best winter comfort-foods!


4 medium potatoes; peeled and cubed
1 small Onion; chopped
1 tsp salt
Pepper; to taste
1/2 stick (4 T) Butter
4 cups milk
1/2 cup Flour

Original recipe makes 10 Servings



Barely cover potatoes and onions with water.

Add salt and simmer until potatoes are done - approximately 15-20 minutes.

Add the 4 cups of milk and slowly bring to a boil.

Make thickening. Whisk 1/2 cup flour into hot, melted butter to combine. Cook on stove for a minute, then mix in enough warm water to make into a loose paste. Add slowly to soup.

May need to use whisk again if it is too lumpy.

Add pepper to taste.

Serve with grated cheese and crumbled bacon, if desired.

This is a lovely, comforting basic soup. Very filling, very cheap and really tasty. I also added some chopped celery and a sprig of rosemary while cooking and served the soup with hot buttered toast and a sprinkle of grated cheddar.

This soup was delicious! I added about 1/4-1/2 c. celery and about 3 Tbsp. sour cream along with 1 tsp. dry onion mix and herbs. When it came to letting to soup simmer, I left the soup on for about 4-5 hours. To serve I added grated old cheddar and bacon as a garnish. It turned out creamy and tender. A wonderful comfort food!
