I've been trying to expand my dinner repertoire lately.
In honor of the cold and snow that we are currently
enjoying dealing with
here is a new recipe we tried (and liked!) for potato soup.
Baked Potato Soup
6 large baked potatoes--diced (uncooked, peeled or unpeeled)
1/2 c. instant mashed potatoes
4 c. chicken broth
1 c. butter
1 c. flour
6 c. milk
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. sugar
Combine boiling water with instant potatoes.
Make white sauce with butter, flour, milk, and salt.
Add sauce to broth with a whisk.
Bring to a simmer, add seasonings and diced potatoes.
When potatoes are soft, serve with you choice of toppings:
Variations: I like my soup thick and chunky, so I HALVED the butter, flour, milk, and salt mixture to get the consistency that you see above.
My husband said the only thing that would have made it better would've been CLAMS.
