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


  1. Place 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.
  2. Remove from heat. Using a stick blender, give the soup 3-4 pulses. (The more you pulse, the small the pieces of potato.)
  3. Check seasonings and serve.
