I had a taste for some old fashioned potato soup, the kind that my mother made. I think it was time I wrote it down. I'm not getting any younger and the old memory could fade at any time. LOL! This is it and even right down to the bacon grease.
Saute onion and bacon in margarine and optional bacon grease. When sauteed add the flour, stir and set aside. Cook the carrots and potatoes together in enough water to just cover potatoes. Add pinch of salt and cook until tender. About 20 minutes.
When potatoes and carrots are tender, pour 1 cup of water into a measuring cup and discard any left in the pot. Pour the 1 cup back into pot and add 3 cups of milk and the sauteed ingredients into the pot. Add the chicken bouillon granules and optional ham. Simmer for about 30 minutes.
Ladle into bowls and garnish with shredded cheese.
Take that bowl and that hunk of bread and enjoy. Umm! Good old fashioned comfort food. Your grandma would be proud.

My husband wanted potato soup one night for dinner and I thought I had enough potatoes because I always make things from scratch.
Does anyone have an easy potato soup recipe?
