Simple Yet Good Potato Soup

This is a recipe my mother passed down to my family some time ago long before she passed away in 2006. My mother know how to really cook very well and she made sure when she had kids that all of us would know how to cook and take care of our selves. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did growing up being able to have this wonderful dish. Now I will mention here that potatoes are generally quite bland and will suck up salt and pepper quite easily so be sure to salt and pepper to taste.


Aproximatly 10 -15 white potatoes peeled & quartered (Like making mashed)

1 Large Onion Chopped Use half

1 stick butter

Bisquick Dumplings ( Follow recipe on box)

(If you can not eat dumplings, just boil the potatoes longer until they are very soft)

Enough water to cover the potatoes


Wash & peel potatoes. Cut up in to 1 inch pieces. Let soak in salted water till ready to cook. Be sure you rinse the potatoes before putting them in this bowl to “rest”. In large soup pot melt stick of butter and saute half chopped onion. Cook till onion is almost “transparent”. Add potatoes, and add water to cover the potatoes. Cook until potatoes are tender when poked with a fork. While soup is bubbling drop dumplings by teaspoon. Stir & cook about 5 – 10 mins.

The ingredients are simple. The pealing of the potatoes and making the dumplings are the most time consuming part of it.

Be sure not to over cook the onions otherwise the soup will look brown and when its done it should look white like a cloud.

If soup is too thick, add about a cup of water to thin.
Eat and enjoy!

Should look like this when done.
