I got this recipe from a friend on an internet forum several years ago. It is hands down the best potato soup I've ever had (sorry, Grandma). It is rich and creamy and so full of flavor. Anyone I've ever made it for has always requested the recipe, after going back for seconds.

How to Make Farmer Red's Tater Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel and dice potatoes and chop onion to desired size. Onion is vital to the flavor but can be left in larger chunks to fish out if you don't like to eat it. Put in large crockpot.
  2. Add chopped carrots and celery if desired for extra color and flavor. Add bouillon cubes and enough water to reach 1-2 inches from the top.
    (I usually dissolve my cubes in a small amount of water before adding to the crockpot.)
  3. Cook on high 4-5 hours or low 7-8 hours.

    DO NOT OPEN IT, DO NOT STIR IT, DO NOT BOTHER
    IT WHILE IT'S COOKING.
  4. When ready to serve, add butter and evaporated milk.
    The soup will be fairly thin. If you prefer a thicker soup, add instant potatoes to desired thickness.

    Top with green onions, cheese, crumbled bacon, etc.
