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


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!

A dash of local for every season
