Actually, Dad got the recipe from his friend Marie and tweeked it some. He made this potato soup over the holidays. It was great. We discussed that it might be even better with a couple of teaspoons of flour and a stalk or two of celery.
1 large onion chopped
1 bag (5 pounds or less) pealed and chunked
1 small container sour cream
1 quart half and half
1 stick of salted butter
2 – 3 cans of chicken broth
Salt & Pepper to taste
Bacon Bits (or you can add crumbled fried bacon)
Add shredded cheese on top an enjoy
You should start the the soup by putting the potatoes in first and let them cook for 30 minutes or so. You can add potato flakes when the soup us done to thicken it up.
