This is my recipe. Mom made hers with speatzels and cooked it a long time. I get the potato soup flavor with this simple, everyday version.

Ingredients

SOUP:

4 medium
potatoes, peeled and sliced
2 small
onions, chopped
1 sprig(s)
celery, chopped or 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
freshly grated black pepper
4 c
chicken broth or bouillon (you can use just water but the flavor is better with broth)
1-3 c
milk to thin soup to your liking

OPTIONAL GARNISH:

crisp bacon bits, shredded cheese, or sour cream to garnish, optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place vegetables in large pot. Add seasonings and broth. Vegetables should just be covered. If need be add water.
2
Bring to a boil, turn heat down and simmer until potatoes are completely done. Use a fork to mash potatoes if they are in large chunks (but I like to leave this soup a bit chunky). Add milk to thin to desired consistency.
3
Garnish with crisp bacon bits, shredded cheese, or sour cream if you like.
