Potato Soup (Simple)
4-5 MEDIUM/LARGE RUSSET POTATOES
(PEEL AND CHOP INTO 3/4 INCH PIECES)
1/2 KNORR CHICKEN BOUILLON CUBE OR
2 REGULAR SQ. BOUILLON CUBES.
1 CUP HALF & HALF
2 TBSP. CORN STARCH
1/4 TSP. PEPPER
1/2 TSP. SALT
3-4 TBSP. BUTTER

Put potatoes in medium saucepan. Add water to top of potatoes. Add ½ Knorr bullion OR 2 cubes of regular bullion. Bring to a boil on medium/high setting. Once boiling set timer and boil 12 minutes.
In glass measuring cup combine half and half, cornstarch, pepper, and salt. Whisk well. Add to potatoes when timer goes off. Put on medium/high heat and add butter. Stir well.
Simmer 5 minutes and serve.

Potato soup was one of. my mother’s favorite soup and she didn’t use corn starch she also added. Onion and celery including the leaves. There is flavor in those celery leaves

Monica Gieck says:

I made this today. I added onions and celery.
We are Dutch so my mom added revals a drop noodle. 1 egg 2 Tablespoon of flour. Drop tham by teaspoon in the hot broth before you add the half and half. It makes a nice thick soup.

Just like my momma made! I miss her. this brought back good memories. Thanks for the good recipe

Jon Carroll says:

I like mine a little thinner. We always called it stewed potatoes and my parents served it with fried Armour Treat (a cheaper version of Spam), which is what I do. I think that was a carry-over from the depression and their parents. It's now on my menu for next week.

Al Jorgy says:

Great, I will make. 🍻

I like chopped onion in my potato soup so it goes in the water when I boil my potatoes. YUmM YUM
