8 Lg Potatoes, cubed

2 Med Onions, chopped

2 Tbsp Margarine

2 Chicken boullion cubes

2 Tbsp Parsley, dry

6 cup Water

2 cup Milk

1/2 cup Flour, mixed with water

Place ingredients 1 through 6 in the crockpot and cook all day on low to medium. 1/2 hour to one hour before serving; add milk and flour mixture. After the soup starts to thicken, it is ready to serve. Serves 8

NOTES: Add 1/4 pound of Velveeta cheese for Cheese potato soup. 1 can evaporated milk may be substituted for the regular milk.


Here's a great recipe for an old favorite.

4 russet potatoes, peeled and diced

1 carrot, sliced and peeled

1 yellow onion, chopped

6 cups vegetable stock

8 tablespoons butter

1/4 cup flour

2 cups milk

2 cups cheddar cheese, grated

In a large pot, combine the potatoes, carrots, onions, and stock. Bring to a

boil over a medium heat. After this reaches a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the vegetables are soft.

Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the flour. Using a wooden spoon, stir for 2 minutes. One half cup at a time, add the milk and cook until smooth. Add the cheese and stir until the mixture is thickened. Add the mixture to the soup, and add salt and pepper to taste.

Bacon Potato Soup

Serve this simple soup with hearty bread.

1/4 pound Bacon, diced

1/4 cup Celery

3 Leeks

2 Tablespoons Flour

2 cups Water

2 cups Milk

2 medium Potatoes, peeled and diced

Salt and pepper to taste

1 teaspoon Parsley, chopped

Slice the leeks lengthwise. Remove the root end and most of the green end. Slice the leeks across the grain and soak in water until needed. Add the bacon pieces to a heavy saucepan and cook until brown. Add the celery and leeks. Cook until just soft. Add the flour and cook for 3 minutes. Add the water and milk. Slowly bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, add the potatoes and simmer for 1 hour (or until the vegetables are tender). Check the seasonings. Serve warm, garnished with parsley. Serves 4

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

salt 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.)
