Jan's notes for this recipe:
I grew up on this soup...fall is here and I was chilly today, so figured it was a good day for it! It's a basic potato soup recipe but the addition of the hotdogs makes it better!

Don't be put off by the hotdogs, give it a try & then decide...it also has no salt other than from the hotdogs...

I just made this today & didn't think to take a pic until I had it in the serving bowl, so at least you can see how it looks!

You could also do this in your crockpot but don't cut the potatoes so small; I'd cook it on low for about 4-6 hrs.
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


Peel potatoes and cut into 1" cubes; chop onion and celery; place in 4 qt. saucepan and cover with water.
Add seasonings and heat over medium-high heat until it potatoes are softened. Use an immersion blender (or potato masher) to break potatoes down and make it thicker and creamy consistency (we like a little chunkiness, so I blended it just a little).
Add in the butter and milk, stirring to blend. Add hotdogs and continue heating until the hotdogs are warmed through.
Ladle into bowls and enjoy!
Note: If you don't want hotdogs, you can use cooked meatballs (beef, turkey or chicken), or maybe kielbasa. But try it first with the hotdogs!

I for one love hot dogs in soup (mind you it has to be 100% all-beef or my Hubby won't touch`em)

ha ha, I got a lot of raised eyebrows from ppl when I said I put them in my potato soup...yep, all beef is best! I have used others though, if it's a good brand...I often buy Superior or Sugardale in 3 lb pkgs on sale & freeze in zip bags...think today's were Sugardale, only thing I had but wanted soup!
