Does anyone have a good recipe for potato soup? I know this is trivial, or should be anyway, but I have yet to find one that is like it was in the good old days. I use to love potato soup, but haven't had it in years. Do you have a good potato soup recipe you could share?

Potato soup is my all time favorite, but I refuse to make it. That way it remains special. My husband found this recipe in the newspaper a few weeks back and has made it for me twice. It is simple and still delicious. Potato Soup 3 t. butter 3 C. sliced or chopped leeks (you can substitute onions) 3 T. flour 2 qts. water salt and pepper to taste 4 C. potato chopped 1/2 C. heavy cream 3 T. chopped parsley Melt butter in a 5 quart pan. Add leeks and cook slowly for 5 minutes without browning. Blend in flour and cook for 2 minutes. Gradually add water, stirring to prevent lumps. Add potatoes, bring to a boil and simmer partially covered 45 minutes. You can prepare ahead to this point if you like. Before serving bring soup to a simmer and stir in cream, parsley and 3 T. more butter.

I make a very quick potato soup recipe that is very good. Buy dehydrated mashed potatoes (I usually use potato buds) and prepare them as the directions say, but with milk and thin to the consistency that you like. Add butter and a bit of salt (or more, if the directions advise you to add some) and white pepper. It's ready in no time and is very hearty. Top with anything you'd put on a baked potato: cheese, green onions, bacon bits. I like broccoli and cheese on mine, it's very good on a cold day. I like this because it's ready in no time and you can keep the ingredients on hand all the time. I was in utah this january and lived on this soup for a week or two (I was broker than broke) and it always kept me full.

I don't know the exact recipe but onecutehoneybear has a great one. She is on my friends and I'm sure she would give it to you. It is so good and I ask for her to make it all the time.
