HOMEMADE POTATO SOUP #justthebells10 #family #shorts #cooking






  1. I use slow cookers to "off load" some cooking tasks.

    I use my Large (7 qts.) slow cooker to cook a batch (about 8 lbs.) large Russett or sweet potatoes. Takes 6 hours or so on low, but you don't have to keep an eye on it.

    I use my smaller (4.5 qts.) to cook a couple of small roasts (5 lbs. total) overnight.

    These are just two of the many things I use my slow cookers for.

    I only have two. For a large family, I think even 2 large Crockpots would be a great help with meal prep.

    My two cents.

  2. I make mine with diced smoked ham. Far as the soup goes just use carrots onion and garlic powder, white pepper and just a lil salt. I boil my potatoes and give it a light mash then add milk and rest ingredients and a small cornstarch slurry, just enough to make it a bit thick and then take off the heat and mix 1 bag of shredded cheddar cheese and mix till it all melted in. I call it my ham n cheese potatoe soup.

  3. Soup is supposed to be hearty, thick, warming and HEALTHY!!! Far too much butter and too much salt but only one onion, ridiculous.

    I have a Scottish cousin, soup is a staple in that country. Every soup she has made for me, every recipe she has designed for me has been perfection. In the last forty years she has won gold medals in every food category at The Royal Highland Show, a national competition. Her toes would curl at this recipe.

    As for adding a bag of potato au gratin, more unnecessary fat and salt.

  4. I remember the first time having potato soup. Me and family lived in thatcher and we were pretty new there, we were also pretty poor and during one day in winter, our neighbors came and dropped off a big pot of potato soup. Our neighbors by were actually a couple and old man and woman. They were so sweet, I hope they're doing okay.
