Old Fashioned Potato Soup

Thrifty.Chef's picture
Ingredients
  Baking potatoes 2 Pound, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices (4 Medium)
  Butter/Margarine 2 Tablespoon
  Yellow onion 1 Small, peeled and chopped
  Milk 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Celery salt 1 Pinch
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Cayenne pepper 1 Pinch
  Minced parsley 2 Tablespoon
Directions

1. Place the potatoes in a 2-quart saucepan with enough water to cover. Set the lid askew on the pan, and boil for 10 minutes, or until tender.
2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a 7-inch skillet over moderate heat. Add the onion, and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes, or until soft. Set aside.
3. When the potatoes are done, drain them in a colander, then mash them with a potato masher while they are still warm.
4. Return the potatoes to the saucepan, and add the onion and any butter remaining in the skillet. Stir in the milk, celery salt, salt, and cayenne pepper. Cook, over moderate heat, stirring frequently, until smooth and steaming—about 5 minutes. Do not let the soup boil or it will curdle. Sprinkle each serving with some of the parsley.
