Easy Potato Soup Recipe


This easy potato soup recipe is perfect for when the weather forecaster is predicting a hefty snowstorm coming your way. You’ve heard that before but you decide not to give into the panic shopping that takes place across the region.

The following morning you awake, let the dog out and after wrestling with the back door, see snow and lots of it. The day goes on, the kids are inside after blissfully sledding, having snowball fights and making snowmen.

Suddenly you realize it’s nearing dinner. No worries, here’s a hearty, easy potato soup recipe that requires ingredients we all have in our pantry.

Easy Potato Soup


4 potatoes
1 quart milk (4 cups)
1/2 to 1 diced onion
4 Tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon (heaping) flour
Dash of pepper


1. Cut potatoes into small pieces and cook in salted water, with the onion.

2. In a heavy pan melt the butter over low heat. Stir in flour and cook until bubbly.

3. Slowly add half of the milk. Add hot, cooked potatoes and onion mixture.

4. Use a potato masher to break up potatoes a bit. Add the rest of the milk and the salt and pepper.

5. Cook over medium heat until hot. If it is not thick enough, shake 1 tablespoon of flour with 1/2 cup cold milk and add to the soup, stir frequently, garnish with a sprinkle of dried parsley.
