Thanks, Leigh. I tried the potato soup recipe with sour cream last weekend and it is the best I've ever had! I'm sending the recipe on to my sister (her husband loves to make potato soup).

I did not use the noodles, but did add a little celery salt, a shake of garlic powder, some bits of carrrot, leftover diced ham & a little cheese.

It was even better when reheated the next day. I think I'll make it again when my club comes over for lunch & cards in March and call it Irish Potato Soup.

Hash Brown Potato Soup

Hash Brown Potato Soup.

I looked at the recipe, but didn't really follow it, just got ideas from it. Here is what I did: I had about 1/3 bag of hashbrowns, put in pan, added 2 cups skim milk. Heat this till hot, and simmer till potatoes are tender. I added some chopped onion, garlic, and various seasonings. I had some bacon bits in the freezer and dumped in about a handful. I had a package of a country gravy mix that I mixed with about 1 cup cool water, stirring till no more lumps. When the potatoes were tender, I added the gravy mixture stirring, it thickened up quite quickly. I actually added some more water till it was a little thinner (but not much, I like thick potato soup). I topped it with fat free sour cream, shredded cheese (not fat free), and sliced green onions. It was quick and delicious!

a hand mixer or food processor) If the puree is too
thick, add more chicken broth and heat through.
Add some cubed smoked ham if you have it, or any
meat off the ham bone, diced very very fine. Ladle
soup into bowls, ( stirring soup before each ladle)
....add one teaspoon of heavy cream to each bowl,
sprinkle with a tiny bit of parsley.

Serve with a hearty bread, such as buttered whole
wheat , croutons, or hot ham and melted cheese
sandwiches on a whole grain bread.

This will give you about 4 servings.

Cheeseburger Soup

This is a potato soup that I found in the "Taste of Home Annual Recipes 1997". I add a bit more potatoes, meat, spices and use shredded chedder cheese instead of the American-just adjust to the way you like it. It is WONDERFUL on a cold winter day with a big chunk of crusty buttered bread!! It is fantastic if made the day before and warmed up again--YUM!!!

1/2 pound ground meat
3/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup shredded carrots
3/4 cup diced celery
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
4 tablesppons butter or margarine--divided
3 cups chicken broth
4 cups peeled diced potatoes (1 3/4 lbs)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
8 oz. process American cheese-cuped (2 cups)
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup sour cream

In 3 qt. saucepan, brown beef; drain and set aside. In same saucepan, saute onion, carrots, celery, basil, and parsley in 1 tablespoon butter until vegies are tender, about 10 minutes. Add broth, potatoes, and beef; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, melt remaining butter. Add flour; cook and stir 3-5 minutes until bubbly. Add slowly to soup and bring to a boil. Cook and stir 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Add cheese, milk, salt and pepper; cook and stir until cheese melts. Remove from heat and add sour cream.

Hope you like!

Spicy Potato Soup

1 pound ground beef
4 cups cubed peeled potatoes (1/2" cubes)
1 small onion, chopped
3 cans (8 ounces each) tomato sauce
4 cups water
2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 teaspoons pepper
1/2 to 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

In a Dutch oven or large kettle, brown ground beef.
Drain. Add potatoes, onion and tomato sauce. Stir
in water, salt, pepper and hot peper sauce; bring to
a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour or until
the potatoes are tender and the soup has thickened.
Yield: 6-8 servings

Tip: Unless you like it really spicy, add the pepper
and hot pepper sauce a little at a time and taste it.
It gets really hot.
