When winter weather greeted us this week, I knew it was time for a pot of soup. The first that crossed my mind was Potato Soup!
Sure enough, I discovered I had all the needed ingredients!
I melted 1/4 cup of butter in a pot.
Next, I added 1/4 cup of flour, stirring it until it bubbled slightly, about a minute or so.
Then came the addition of 4 cups of milk....
....along with 2 cups of diced potatoes and 1/2 cup diced onion.
Do you ever use Himalayan Pink Salt? This is what I chose for that soup. The peppercorns are available at the market packaged in a grinder, just in case your pepper mill is not functional.
Add the desired amount of salt and pepper to the soup, and bring it to a boil, cooking and stirring until the soup has thickened a bit and the potatoes are done. (I use a cake tester to check the cubes of potato).
Is it soup yet??
You'd better believe it! Garnish with a little shredded cheese and bacon bits, if desired. Sour cream could also be added. Served here with a Corn Bread Stick. Thank you, Bisquick!
