Potato Soup Notes

I love potato soup, but have never really found a recipe that I liked...so I made up my own. At least, as far as I know, there is not one like this!

  • 2 quarts chicken stock (I use homemade)
  • 4-5 baking potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 stick (2 ounces) butter
  • 1 medium sweet onion, small dice
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2-3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4-1/2 cup milk
  • to taste, salt
  • to taste, pepper
  • to taste, fresh dill
  • for garnish, shredded cheddar cheese
Serves / Yields

Approximately 6 servings

Preparation Instructions

Cook potatoes in one quart of chicken stock until fork tender.

In a skillet, melt butter and sautee onion and garlic until translucent. Add flour to make a rue (paste). Stir until golden brown.

Add chicken stock to rue to make a thick, but smooth paste. When desired consistency, add to chicken stock. Stir with whisk until creamy.

Add milk and cooked potatoes along with the chicken stock that potatoes were cooked in. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Add some fresh chopped dill last. Put into soup bowls and sprinkle cheddar cheese on top.

Helpful Hints

For onions, I use my mandolin using the small shredder.

I use fresh ground pepper and kosher salt.

Serve with fresh bread and/or salad.
