Just Plain - Good Old Fashion Potato Soup

Tammy Todd Recipe

By Tammy Todd ttodd4jesus

This recipe is very simple but packs alot of flavor and is still the best potato soup I've ever eaten! A lady in my church, (Kitty) taught me this recipe when I would stay at her house for a visit. I can still hear her daughter playing hymns on the piano while we cooked in the kitchen. I never thought such a simple soup could be that good, but it is! I had to really think about how to make it again as its been awhile since I've made it but it has come to me so I want to get it down. I've not seen or tasted a pototo soup like it since. I will have to make it again now that the weather is cool.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Peel 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)
2
To 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)
3
Take 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!
