sounds delish i am copying it down.. for a soup dinner later...on a cold night... :)
This sounds wonderful! TFS
Snow predicted for Nebraska beginning tomorrow...guess what we will be having for lunch? LOVE a good soup or stew on a cold blustery day!
UMM UMM GOOD. We make ours much the same - but add a grated carrot for color, add rivels, chopped green onions to sprinkle on & leave out the cheese. Instead we serve with cheese toast. Potato soup is one of our favorite meals. Sometimes we have homemade ham salad sandwiches instead of the cheese toast.

This is similar also and is THE VERY BEST soup that I have EVER had and I have made a ton of different ones. It says that it serves 8---well, it served 3 at my house. We all went back for more.
HAM AND POTATO SOUP

1/3 c. Chopped celery
1/3 c. Chopped onion
3/4 c diced cooked ham
3 and 1/4 c. Water

1/2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Pepper
5 Tbsp. Butter
5 Tbsp. Flour

Combine potatoes, celery, onion and ham with water in stockpot. Bring to boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender (10-15 mins). Stirs in bouillon and salt and pepper.
In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Wisk in flour with fork and cook stirring constantly until thick. (1 min). Slowly stir in milk...continue stirring (med low heat) until thick (4 - 5 mins).
Stir the milk mixture into stockpot and cook soup until heated through! Serve with cheese (I melt some cheese in in the last few mins)!
mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Supposed to be cold here with snow; so maybe these 2 recipes will be on the back burner a perculating !LOL thanks for the recipes !!
Both recipes sound great--it's a favorite warm me up soup in the winter. Last time I made it I added some leftover squash--about 1 c or so. It mixed in with the soup and turned the soup a warm mellow yellow color. Did not have a 'squashy' taste but certainly added a great flavor to a good soup. Squash is full of vitamin A and you can sneak in some extra nutritional value at the same time.
Great idea oksewglad! I'm always looking for ways to sneak veggies into things for my hubby. ;)
Sounds yummy. I was thinking about making potato soup. We have some left over ham. I will have to do this tomorrow night.
