Here's one that came from my Mother!
Take 8 potatoes wash peel and dice.
Add one large onion diced. Cover with water and cook until done.
Mash potatoes up a little with potato masher, leave a few lumps. Add 2 cups milk and 2 cups heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Peel, chop and cook about 8 potatoes until very soft, meanwhile chop and saute in butter one large onion, 2 stalks of celery, stir into potatoes, add 16 oz sour cream, salt and pepper to taste. If there is any leftovers I have also added small can of chopped clams for clam chowder.
Baked Potato Soup
4 large potatoes, scrubbed Bake potatoes until fork tender Cut potatoes in half and scoop out (flake potatoes)--Chop 1/2 of the peels in small pieces (discard other half of peels)
In heavy kettle
Melt 2/3 cup butter
Add 2/3 cup flour (whisk together)
Add 1 and 1/2 quarts milk Stir constantly till thickened
alt and pepper to taste
Add potato and skins
Add 4 green onions -chopped (I use about 1/4 cup instant minced onion)
1 cup sour cream
1 and 1/2 cup crisp-cooked, crumbled bacon
5 oz. finely grated cheddar cheese (heat through) do not let it boil
Mix all over low heat until cheese melts
(When I do this at home, I sprinkle the bacon and the cheese on top of the hot soup--for group it will work better to have it all in the soup like the recipe says to do, I just like the bacon to stay really crisp.)
This is a very hearty and healthy soup that is made almost completely of vegetables. It feels like a rich creamy winter soup, but only has about 250 calories a serving and tastes great!
Approximate Time: 2 hours
Yield: 8 (1 1/2) cup servings
Tip: Soak the leeks after chopping to easily remove the embedded dirt.

This is a bit of a change for potato soup, a little heartier and spicier than the usual, with a touch of heat. I don't slice the sausage up, I just cook it in the soup to heat the sausage up, and, give the soup a little more flavor.
Everyone loves this on a cold winter day. We eat it like it is, but it also tastes good with cheddar cheese or bacon sprinkled on top!
It finally turned a little cool here in south Texas with the much needed rain that came and stayed all weekend.
I use instant potato flakes to thicken my potato soup. What else would you use!

I am looking for a recipe for frozen mashed potato soup.
By Julie from Windsor, ON
PS: I think you'll want to allow the potatoes to thaw in the refrigerator first.
Brown one medium onion in bacon fat. Add to one large can of tomato juice and one regular size can of cut/chopped tomatoes. Add bite sized pieces of potatoes.
This soup was a bit hit with the family and was a great way to use up older veggies. The carrots and squash have it a lovely golden color and a rich flavor.
Cook potatoes and onion in salt water until tender. Add milk and butter. Heat (don't boil). Just before serving add 2 chopped hard-boiled eggs.
Cook potatoes until tender. Do not drain all of potato water off. Save enough for 1 can of water in soup can. Add soup; add Velveeta cheese to taste. Heat until cheese is melted.

When making potato soup, add 1 can of cream of chicken soup and one can of cream of onion soup. Thicken the soup with instant mashed potato flakes. Add a little of the flakes at a time until you get the consistency you like. I also like to add about 1/4 cup of chicken soup base. You won't believe how good this is.
