Recipe – Creamy Potato Soup!

This recipe was given to us by Kate Kennedy (accounting) and has a reputation for making grown men call their mommies while eating it (it reminds them of Mom for those out there that are metaphorically challenged)….ENJOY!!!potato-soup-11

3 pounds of baking potatoes (9-10 medium sized)

1 Tbls butter

1 ½ cup onions, finely chopped

2 Tbls fresh garlic, minced

1 can (14 oz) chicken broth

3 cups milk

1 tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper

Toppings:  shredded cheddar, green onions, bacon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake 1 hour until tender.  (If I’m in a hurry, I cook them in the microwave)…

Let potatoes cool to touch – then peel…

Melt butter in a large stockpot over medium heat and add onions and garlic…

COVER – Simmer – and let the onions sweat – don’t let them brown – just soften…

Add 2/3 of the potatoes and mash in the pot with a masher…

Add chicken broth, milk and salt and pepper…

Raise the heat a little to bring it to a light simmer (almost a boil – but don’t boil)…

Chop remaining potatoes into small cubes, add to soup, and simmer till heated through…

Garnish individual bowls with chopped green onions, cheese and crumbled bacon…

Serves:  4-6
