How to Make Homesteader's Potato Soup
- 1Peel your potatoes and place them into a medium pot. Add enough water to cover them. Boil them until the potatoes are soft. Pour off about half of the water, not all of it, because their is a lot of flavor in the water.
- 2Partially mash the potatoes. If you like "chunky" soup, then leave a lot of chunks approximately the size of a marble.
- 3Add the butter. Dice the Velveeta and add it now too. Heat over medium heat to melt the butter and Velveeta. Stir gently as not to break up the potato pieces.
- 4Add your half and half, gently heating and stirring. Add salt and pepper to taste.
