<p>d a big snow this weekend and wanted something like this. Homemade potato soup!! OMG this was great...GREAT instructions!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!</p>
<p>You went into great detail on this recipe; good job! Except when you say add flour, add milk at the end.... you have to scroll back and forth to get amountS! </p><p>Thanks!</p>
<p>great and really easy for a quick easy dish I will make it again kids loved it!!</p>
<p>similar to what I make but I use some of the starchy water, and milk with flour, but for a different flavor, add a can or two of chopped clams can drain or use liquid for flavoring I don't brown the onions I boil them with the potatoes</p>
<p>This turned out so well for me! A lot of online recipes kind of assume you know things that you don't necessarily know, so I really appreciate the slow approach, with pictures!</p>
I made it! loved it, but used only half the salt. I will make it again! Thx
<p>Do NOT boil it on low at the end it burns and tastes DISGUSTING </p>
<p>pretty good otherwise but jeez</p>
<p>Easy and delicious! I used 3 teaspoons salt as suggested and loved the diced celery in it!</p>
<p>I love this recipe! It was so simple to make, though I did use less salt and added a little pepper and thyme! </p>
<p>Nice easy recipe, but very salty. Possibly 3 teaspoons instead of 3 tablespoons?</p>
I agree. Very salty!!! I think it should have been tsp. Not tblsp...had to scratch thr whole pot.
First time ive ever made potato soup and it was amazing !!
<p>Wish I took pictures! I make a pretty good Onion Soup that the wife raves about, so I thought it time to see what I could do with a 'tater soup. Not only is this soup great as a base, its perfect for the soul (like soup should be!) Thanks, your recipe will now be part of my family forever as I build and add to it our own family touches!</p>
I loved this recipe! I threw in some bacon and cheddar cheese. It was amazing!
<p>I made it but it I think we prefer more onion and it was not thick enough for our taste...so I used a little coconut flour, help seeds and then made a chia seed gel with white chia seeds. If you don't eat clean this may all be odd to you but I have all this on hand. I also used a can of creme of celery and 2 cans of condensed milk when I tripled the recipe..and bacon crumbles!</p>
<p>sounds good. But now you have made an entirely different recipe. </p>
<p>Yeah, but this recipe sounds like it's a great base- and people can just take it from there and doctor it up as they wish. :) I think if that's how she prefers it- at least she had a great place to start! :)</p>
<p>I really appreciate this basic recipe. We are broke right now and I can't afford the ham, chives, cheddar cheese, etc. the fancy recipes want but I knopw I can pull together something like this.</p>
<p>Thank you so much!</p>
Perhaps you meant 3 tsp salt and not 3 tbsp?
This was the BEST potato soup recipe! Thank you soooo much!
Med it for my mom and dad. Double the recipe and turned out really good. This proves 13 year old can cook (BSA helps to hehehe).<br>

Looks good and not that hard to make.
