Just Plain - Good Old Fashion Potato Soup
Featured Pinch Tips Video
- potatoes, medium
- small yellow onion, grated (must be grated)
- regular can evaporated milk
- stick of butter
- salt and pepper
1Peel potatoes and cut into eighths and place in a large pot. Cover potatoes with water to about an inch above the potaoes. Add salt to taste. Boil about 20-25 mins, until potatoes are nice and soft and a fork goes through them easily. (Do not drain them)
2To the pot of potatoes and potato water, add the rest of the ingredients. (the onions must be grated as that is what really flavors the soup and gives it some texture)
3Take a potatoe masher and mash some but not all of the potatoes. Try to get the larger chunks. This will thicken it. Don't mash too much or it will be too thick. If it does get too thick, add some water. Add salt and pepper to taste. Heat until hot and serve.
*** The flavor is so pure and tastey that it makes it the best comfort food on a cold day!
