I have been searching for a recipe for Potato soup for a while now and can not find one. Oh, sure, I'll find recipes for soups with potatoes in them. All I want is a recipe for good ole-fashioned Potato soup- the creamy kind with carrots and bacon. Please help me!!!  Cheesy

Damn the man, Save the Empire!


I wanna personal swap!

I had a recipe years ago, but have lost it on paper and just do the following:

- Peel and Boil Potatoes and carrots till soft in chicken broth.  (I use perhaps 2 or 3 OXO packets, depending on the amount.  Celery is too weak of a soup base, i find, but be careful, because chicken is usually salty.)
- Drain, and set aside both the broth and the vegetables.
- Fry up bacon, set aside, or use left over ham.
- Chop an onion, in large pieces. 
- Saute onion in butter in a large soup pot.
- Sift in flour, to form a paste, use milk to dilute.  (Basically, make a white sauce).
- Mash a few potatoes into this, creating a thick paste. 
- Salt and Pepper the soup. 
- Add in the broth.  (You may not need all of this, add in portions, to avoid making soup too watery.)
- Add Potatoes and carrots. 
- Add more milk or broth if soup is too thick.
- Let simmer and thicken by mashing down potatoes.

This soup gets better the longer it sits.  I often make it after a big ham dinner.  Very belly-filling-winter food.
Sorry for the vagueness of the directions, but i make it without even thinking by now...Hope this makes sense!
