Delicious Potato Soup

About a year ago I discovered potato soup. I'd never had it before that, but for some reason I decided to try making it. And I love it! Every time I make it, I eat way too much because I just can't stop because it is So Delicious! Wow! This is the recipe I use. It's also the only potato soup I've ever had, but I can't imagine it getting much better than this.

This particular picture is a batch I made without ham. I didn't have any on hand, so I made it without and just added a little salt to make up for it. It was also delicious, but I like it best with a little ham.

Give it a try!

Chunky Potato Soup

3-4 medium potatoes
2 cups of water
1 small onion
3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour
Black pepper
3 cups milk
1/2 tsp sugar
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup cubed cooked ham

  1. Peel potatoes and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  2. Bring water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add potatoes and cook until tender. Drain, reserving 1 cup liquid (adding water if necessary) and set aside.
  3. Peel and chop onion. Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Add onion to saucepan and cook, stirring frequently until onion is translucent and tender but not brown.
  4. Add flour to saucepan. Season with pepper to taste. Cook 3-4 minutes.
  5. Add potatoes, reserved 1 cup cooking liquid, milk and sugar to onion mixture in saucepan. Stir well.
  6. Add cheese and ham.
  7. Simmer over low heat 30 minutes, stirring frequently.
