"A wonderful potato soup. You can add a variety of items to this recipe. What ever you have in your kitchen. If desired, mash the sliced potatoes for a creamier texture."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

potatoes, thinly sliced
instant mashed potato flakes
The soup is good. The instructions, on the other hand, need some clarifing. Putting flour in a pan & cooking it til "pasty"? What's that all about? I think most of us realize the idea was to make a roux. Anyway, it was delicious with only 4 slices of bacon. I would definately make this again.
I think it would be better without the potato flakes. Just use more potato and puree most of the solids at the end. I did add fennel and that was good.
This was just about THE best potato soup I've ever had! My husband raved about it. The only thing I added was a couple of stalks of finely chopped celery and 1 tsp of chopped garlic (I put it in just about everything, though).
This one is definitely a keeper!!!!
Thank you for the base to a great soup. The only thing I omitted was the flour. For the instant potatoes I used 1 packet of garlic and cheddar along with 3 med size potatoes grated like hash browns, two cans of cream of celery and a little pepper. I also only used the meat from the bacon, none of the fat and only half a med size onion. My whole family loves it!
I made this soup for Christmas Eve and it was a big hit! I made it exactly as written and it was delicious. I agree, the recipe was confusing regarding the flour, but you just need to make a simple roux with the bacon grease and it will turn out fine.
this recipe is awsome all my family enjoy it . thank you
Pretty good stuff & easy. I always use bacon bits- so I just saute'd the onion in a little butter, then added the flour. Then chicken broth & bacon, etc. Definitely mash the potatoes quite well in the pan,(when done) & stir between mashings to bring up the potatoes from the bottom. Cook at least 30 minutes- maybe 35-40!
This potato soup is delicious. I used skim milk and upped the flour to 2 tablespoons. Very good and easy.
