Super Yummy, Easy, Fast Potato Soup

(pic from


1 large potato, per person
1/4 cup chopped celery, per person (you can use carrots if you like)
1/4 cup chopped onion, per person
1/4-1/2 cup milk or half-and-half or cream
salt and pepper to taste


1. Peel and cube potatoes.

2. Put in large pan with onions and celery.

3. Add water, but don't quite cover the veggies.

4. Bring to a boil, lower heat, cover and simmer for
20 minutes...OR until the veggies are tender...
(careful not to scorch your potatoes like I did the first time)

5. Crush potatoes, but don't mash them too much...chunks are good.

6. Add enough milk or cream to thin to desired thickness and add salt & pepper to taste.

We topped our soup with bacon and cheddar cheese....
green onions would be yummy too!

Enjoy with warm fresh bread!

Perfect on a snowy winter day.
