Rustic Potato Soup

This is one is a keeper!!! I got this from a friend and made a few minor tweaks.

Here is the recipe:

  • 3 lbs of potatoes (I used a mix of different potatoes)
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 1 32 oz carton of chicken broth (I prefer low sodium)
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 stick of butter (I used “almost” the whole stick.  Probably about 3/4 of the stick.)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

***I added chopped green onions at the end.  You could also cook up some turkey bacon and add that  to the soup and/or some cheese as a topper.***

Skin the potatoes and chop into smallish pieces.  Dice up the potatoes.  Add all of it to any large pot you would typically use for soups.  Add all of the broth and a little bit of water to just cover the mixture.  Bring to a boil for about 10-15 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft.  I used an immersion blend to puree. (This thing is a life-saver.)

Once blended, turn the heat down to a medium/low heat and add the can of evaporated milk and the stick of butter and stir.  You can just keep the soup on low until the butter runs through.  Top with your favorite toppings.  I am currently cooking some turkey bacon to add to my soup.
