*My excuse is football season, my next excuse is wrestling season, and then graduation... etc... :)
Here is a very BASIC potato soup that I absolutely L O V E. This is my Great Grandma's recipe and she'd make it for me most every time I'd come over to visit.
Great Grandma's Potato soup
Red potatoes (enough to make a soup) I'd say a 3 lb bag or so?
White onion Lg
a little butter (to taste)
Ham chunks Or if you're a veggie like me, BACOS
salt and pepper to taste
So obviously, or maybe not so obviously, you scrub the be-geebers outta yer taters. BE-GEEBERS! You don't want any dirt chunks ruining yer soup!
Next cut Potatoes into quarters.
Dice your- I mean, YER onion
Salt and pepper yer water and add the ham/bacos
Throw into a pot and fill with water until JUST covered
Boil until tender and then mash it down a bit and add yer canned milk or cream or sour cream or whatever is yer fancy
Heat till thickened and enjoy!
P.S. I can only eat this with FRANKSREDHOT for some reason. I guess cuz that's how Grandma did. I recommend it if you like hot stuff.
OK, I'm done talking typing like a goober, Hope you try this recipe and build upon it :)
* I add veggie bouillon into my water and more often then not add a little sour cream to thicken it up a bit. Also great with a fresh salad and crusty bread JUST sayin' ;)
