Potato Soup

on March 26, 2014

This recipe comes from my other grandma.

She taught me to make this Potato Soup when I was REALLY little.

I remember her saying, “this is something you can always make, no matter how tough times are, because you almost always have a potato and an onion and some milk and butter”.

Again, this is someone who went through the Great Depression and had learned how to “make do” without a lot.

I love this picture of Grandma and her baby sister.

Love the hair bows!!

I don’t have a card for this recipe – it was one she told me and I was supposed to remember it.

I made this a lot growing up and when I was first married so remembering it wasn’t a problem.

It may be cheap and easy to make, but it’s also DELICIOUS!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Potato Soup

Into a saucepan put:

1 potato per person, sliced

1/2 onion, sliced

Enough water to cover.

Cook until potatoes and onion are tender.

Pour out half of the water and add enough milk to cover the potatoes and onions.

Add 1 Tablespoon butter per person.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Cook until heated through.

Through the years, I have added sausage and/or vegetables.

Let those heat through, also.

You can make it your own by adding whatever meat and veggies you like.


This batch was for 4 people.


I let it boil for about 10 – maybe a bit more – minutes.


I added cheddar sausage and peas to this batch.


This is comfort food for me.

Tastes like home.
