My son would not even try potato soup. He would however eat spud soup, once again proving age and wisdom will triumph over youth and enthusiasm. He called me today asking me to email him my recipe, and I thought you all might enjoy it too.

If you are trying to lower your carb intake, try substituting the potatoes for cauliflower. You can also change-up the flavor by using a turnip and a parsnip instead of all potato.

    You can add ham and/or cheese, broccoli.
    You can skip the potatoes and add cooked sausage and serve it over biscuits. My son is going to try it with corn and crab.
