What You Will Need:

  • 8 Large Idaho Potatoes
  • 1 Small Yellow Onion
  • 1 Stick Butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Instructions:

  1. Wash and peel potatoes
  2. Dice potatoes (the smaller the pieces the faster they cook)
  3. Rinse potatoes until the water is clear. This will remove most of the starch.
  4. Cut and dice onion
  5. Add potatoes and onion to large pot and add just enough water to cover.
  6. Cook on high until boiling. Once boiling add your stick of butter and reduce heat to medium.
  7. Continue cooking until potatoes are tender. Check with a fork, and when they break apart easily, they are ready.
  8. In a separate bowl or cup, mix together your milk and flour using a whisk or fork. Stir until mostly smooth. Don’t worry about little clumps, these will smooth out later.
  9. Add your milk and flour mixture to the pot.
  10. Continue stirring on medium heat until thickened
  11. Now its time to add your salt and pepper. I always add about two tbs of salt, but it is up to you. Just season to taste!
  12. Congrats! Your easy old fashion potato soup is done! Enjoy!

  • Continue cooking on medium until the potatoes are tender. I usually take a fork and once they break apart pretty easily, they are done.
  • In a separate bowl, or cup, mix together your milk and flour with a whisk or fork until somewhat smooth. ( A few lumps is no big deal, they will smooth out later.
  • Add your milk and flour mixture to the pot.
  • Continue stiring on medium heat until thickened.
  • Now is the time to salt and pepper to taste. I suggest about two tablespoons of salt, but to each their own.
