How to Make (Best D_____d) Potato Soup (quoth my husband)


  1. Wash, then cut the patotes into quarters or eights, put in large pan (I use my dutch oven) add water until just covered. Cook until you can easily stick a fork into them. Not mushy, but just cooked.
  2. Remove about 1/2 the water, add 1 1/2 cups milk or coffemate. Put the corn starch into the remaining 1/2 cup milk or coffemate and stir until completely absorbed then add to the potatoes.
  3. Add the chopped onion and bacon. stir together until thick. You may need a little more milk if it gets too thick for your taste, but that is up to you. Salt and peper to taste and serve.
