Miss Betty's Potato Soup

Kathy W


This is a simple, but delicious soup. Great with a salad and some crusty homemade bread.

Miss Betty would occasionally crisp up some bacon, crumble it and sprinkle some into each bowl.

How to Make Miss Betty's Potato Soup


  • 1Place potatoes, onion, salt, pepper, butter and milk in a 4 quart pan. Bring slowly to just a boil. Turn heat down a little - you want the soup just at boiling; less than a full boil, more than a simmer. Stir often. this is important, milk scorches easily. Cook until potatoes are done, about 20 minutes or so.
  • 2Remove from heat. Using a stick blender, give the soup 3-4 pulses. (The more you pulse, the small the pieces of potato.)
  • 3Check seasonings and serve.
