This soup is always a hit at our house. It's easy, yet it tastes like it came from a restaurant.

McCormick Grill Mates Molasses & Bacon
finely chopped fresh
• Peel and dice 6 good size potatoes (not small but not the gargantuan ones)
• Put them in a big pot and add enough water for 2 inches of water to be above the potatoes.
• Boil potatoes on high heat.
• Add ftrggggggggggggggggggggggggg6tttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt<--this ads the meat flavor and I love it!
• Add 2 teaspoons of dried chopped onions or onion powder (or 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh onions, whatever you have)
• Add 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt (if you’re watching your salt intake, you can leave it out)
• Cook your potatoes for about 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender
• In a separate sauce pan, melt one stick of butter on medium heat. Watch it so it doesn't burn or turn brown.
• Whisk in 1/2 cup of flour (it will be thick)
• Add 2 cups of milk slowly while whisking to prevent lumps and until hot
• When this mixture is hot, (but not bubbling) pour your flour/butter/milk mixture slowly into your potato pot
• Stir, heat thoroughly and serve!
This recipe makes roughly 8 bowls of soup. If you need more for a larger group, double the recipe.
If you need less, cut the recipe in half.
I like this in a large quantity so we can have the left overs the next day.
I bet you're wondering, "What can I serve with it?"
I make grilled cheese sandwiches with mine.
We're big dippers at our house and LOVE to dip them in the soup! You could also add your favorite bread, bread sticks, salad, or crackers.
