potato soup

Pin It

There's nothing quite like a nice bowl of soup to warm your soul when the snow starts falling.

Well, maybe soup and your dog wearing his latest fashion statement.

If you're not lucky enough to have an artistic sister to make your pup a bow tie for Christmas, try this soup.  I promise it will warm your house right up.  Almost as much as your dog proudly showing off his newest accessory.

Potato Soup
Recipe adapted from grandma-in-law´s recipe

-5 lbs Russet potatoes
-1/2 c. butter
-1 c. fat free half and half
-1/2 c. low fat sour cream
-1 small yellow onion, pureed
-about 2 tsp celery seed
-salt and pepper, to taste

Peel potatoes, rinse (so they're pretty and white), and cut potatoes into 1" cubes.   Place potatoes into a large pot and barely cover them with water.  Cover the pot and bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat.  Uncover and continue to cook for an additional 20 minutes.  Reduce the heat to low and add the butter, pureed onion, half and half, and sour cream.  Stir well to combine.  Add celery seed, salt and pepper to taste.  Allow to simmer, stirring occasionally, until it thickens (at least 20 minutes or so) and ready to serve.

  1. This sounds just like the potato soup my mother made. I bet she didn't use the cream, so it wasn't as rich, but as kids we didn't know the difference. Comfort food!


I'd love to hear from you!
