QUICK AND EASY POTATO SOUP!!
Potatoes---peeled and cubed---i find yukon golds taste beste
bacon---cooked, crumbled and WITH the grease (adds flavor)
hard boiled eggs (cubed)
onion (to taste)
celery salt (or the real thing)
salt (does not need much)
garlic (just a pinch)
mom used to make this on cold, snowy days and serve with warm bread and butter....mmmmmmm!! memories
cook potatoes in large pan with just enough water to cover tops til ALMOST done....
add rest of the ingredients and simmer for a few hours...tasting as you go and adding more seasonings as you go
the bacon grease just gives it more flavor (yeah, and calories, too...but who's counting
sometimes, i even add some diced ham or cooked hamburger for the cowboy who has to have beef
the milk is added last just to add creaminess and extra flavor
see...pretty simple...forgive me for writing measurements....i have never been one to use a measuring cup except when i am baking croissants or some recipe i have never tried...
stay tuned for more as i think of them
