Tonight, Robert and I were in the market for some delicious comfort food…and, for me, there is nothing more comforting than my mom’s potato soup. I had never made it before, so I thought I should try. I also thought I could share the recipe with whomever reads the blog, so that you can try it yourself. 🙂
Time: about an hour
Yields: 4-6 servings
3 cups water
3 chicken Bouillon cubes
4 potatoes peeled and diced
1 large onion, diced
1/2 green pepper, diced
3 carrots sliced thin
Boil above until tender.
1/3 cup margarine
1/3 cup flour
3 cups whole milk
Cook above over medium heat until thickened. Stir continuously. (As with all white sauces, the stirring is imperative.)
Add white sauce to potatoes and water.
Add a drop of Tobasco sauce. (I skipped this step intentionally in tonight’s soup.)
Green onion, bacon pieces, cheddar cheese, oyster crackers
This is incredibly delicious and you will likely desire several bowls of this amazing stuff. But…it will literally grow in your stomach. I would recommend eating a small bowl, sitting still for about ten minutes, and then going for seconds if you still feel hungry.
If you try it, let me know! 🙂 And if you try it, I hope you enjoy it!
(Oh, and if you live near me, you should know that I am very likely to make you some deliciouspotato soup in the near future.)
