Kirby's Favorite Potato Soup

This recipe was given to us by an employee years ago. We've enjoyed it many many times since then, at family gatherings and as a simple dinner (with a giant salad!). It's a comforting, simple, potato soup that is absolutely delicious with Kutter's cheddar cheese grated on top. We usually make a giant pot by quadrupling the recipe.   


  • 1 cup chopped Onion
  • 2-3 Tbsp of Butter
  • 2 Tbsp Flour
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 2 cups of Potatoes, cubed
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 3 Chicken Boullion Cubes


In a medium sized pot, sautee onions in butter until onions turn a light golden brown. Stir in flour. Gradually add water and stir until you create a paste and there are no lumps of flour. Continue adding water, stirring continually. Add potatoes, milk and boullion cubes. Simmer gently until potatoes are cooked through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Toppings: We usually keep it simple with cheddar cheese and maybe a little sour cream, but bacon, scallions, or chives would be a great idea too.
