It's perfect soup or chili weather if ya ask me so I thought I would post my Amish Potato Soup recipe again. I posted it last February when I wasn't blogging consistently and had probably 4 followers...including myself. Hey, we all have to start somewhere, right?
We have been making this recipe for years now, and it is the best homemade potato soup recipe I have found so far.
1 quart chicken stock (I use 1 can chicken broth, 1 can water, 4 chicken bouillon cubes and 1 can of the water the potatoes were cooked in to equal this).
6-7 large or 9-10 small potatoes, chopped and precooked.
1/2 stick butter or margarine
4 cups milk
Chopped celery to taste (I put some chopped celery leaves in, that's where all the good flavor is).
1/2 onion, finely chopped.
Salt & pepper to taste.
1 cup flour
While boiling potatoes, in a separate pan mix all the other ingredients except for the egg and flour and bring to a boil. Drain potatoes when tender and add to milk mixture, bring all to a boil. Simmer for 15-20 minutes (until celery and onions are tender).
In a small bowl, mix 1 egg and 1 cup flour until grainy. With soup almost boiling, add flour mixture into soup, stirring constantly. Let simmer for another 15-20 minutes. This is great topped with shredded cheese or croutons. Crumbled bacon would be a yummy addition as well.
Do you have a favorite cold weather go-to recipe? Care to share? I love to read your comments!
Keep warm and have a great day!
