Ingredients

  • 4 pounds potatoes-washed, peeled & diced into bite size pieces
  • 1 small onion-diced
  • 1 small carrot-cut into match stick size (this is optional)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 4-5 cups milk
  • 1 stick butter-cut into squares
  • 1-2 cups instant mashed potato flakes
  • real bacon bit pieces for topping

Directions

  • In a pot, put enough water to cover potatoes and boil until almost tender.
  • After boiling potatoes, drain 1/2 of the water out. Add milk, onion, carrots, butter, salt & pepper to potatoes and water.
  • Cover and boil gently until potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes. Add instant potato flakes and gently boil to desired thickness.
  • If you get it to thick, just add more milk. I always add more salt when plated.
  • Top with bacon bit pieces and serve.

Notes

This soup is so yummy and a cure all for everything and perfect for a cold winter day! It is very easy to make and a very creamy soup!

When I've been sick, Mom would send me a pot of this and it would make my tummy feel better and it chases away the blues!
