Serves Yeilds 6 (w/12 potatoes) | Prep Time 20 minutes | Cook Time 25 minutes


8-12 Russet potatoes
1-2 sticks of butter cut into 1TBSP. sized pieces
4 cups of milk
Salt & Pepper

Get a large pot of water to boiling on high. While your water is coming to a boil,

(Wash) Peel and cut potatoes. (Cut in half, then quarter them.)

Place potatoes in a pot full of boiling water. (Water should be high enough to cover potatoes but not boil over! :) )

Boil potatoes for 20 minutes. (fork tender.)

Drain HALF of the starchy water off, into a colander leaving the other half in the pot with the potatoes.

Add milk to potatoes and water.

Mash some of the potatoes, for a thicker soup consistency.

Add parsley.

Add butter.

Season with Salt & Pepper, generously.


Feel free to garnish with Sour Cream, Shredded Cheese, bacon bits!

Growing up, one of my favorite and most comforting meals to eat was my mom's Homemade Potato Soup. Warm & Creamy, with tender potatoes, ... I would have "2nds" quite often. As an adult, I often find myself having 3rds... and on particularly chilly days, maybe a small 4th! :) Comforting, and delicious; this Homemade Potato Soup is sure to please.

Yessssssss!! This IS so yummy! I didn't add as much butter and added onions while potatoes were boiling. Thanks so much for sharing it! :)

This is a terrific recipe! I wasn't sure because there wasn't a photo, but I'm glad I tried. It was freezing today so I made this.. terrific!
