It’s that time of year again! The weather is turning off cooler and what better way to take off the chill than a nice bowl of potato soup. I had a bowl this past weekend and sure was delicious and definitely hit the spot. It is also an excellent way to support our farmers!
If you would like to enjoy a nice bowl of potato soup the recipe is as follows:
Time: around 40 minutes
1 large potato, per person
1/4 cup chopped onion, per person
1/4-1/2 cup milk or 1/4-1/2 cup half-and-half or 1/4-1/2 cup cream
salt and pepper, to taste
cubbed Velveeta cheese
bacon, fried and diced
Peel and cube potatoes.
Put in a saucepan along with the onions.
Add water, but don’t quite cover the potatoes.
Bring to a boil, lower heat, cover and simmer for 25 minutes, or until all of the potatoes are very tender.
Add enough milk or cream to thin to desired thickness.
Add cheese, bacon, salt and pepper to taste.
It also goes well with a few crackers and garlic cheese biscuits.
