WFD Saturday ~ Potato Soup

Dinner on Saturday night was a tried and true family favorite, Potato Soup. We started by cutting up all of our vegetables, and then the rest of the recipe is pretty quick to put together. 

This can be a very frugal recipe if you leave out the Velveeta cheese and it does taste good without the cheese. The bay leaves give a good flavor to the soup.

Here is the recipe:

Potato Soup


½ cup butter
2 medium onions, chopped fine
4 chicken bouillon cubes
6 cups water
6 cups potato, diced
6 diced carrots
2 teaspoons salt
½ teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons celery salt
4 tablespoons flour
1 ⅓ cup evaporated milk
2 bay leaves
Velveeta Cheese


Melt butter, add onions, and saute.
Dissolve bouillon cubes in 3 cups water and add to butter and onions.
Add potatoes, carrots, salt, pepper, celery salt, and bay leaf.
Simmer until tender.
Stir in evaporated milk.
Blend ⅔-cup water with flour and stir into soup to thicken.
Add Velveeta cheese to taste.

This was the perfect dinner after our day of yard sales yesterday and we still have plenty left today for lunch.

What was for dinner at your house?



  1. My dd and I love potato soup. My dh not so much so I don't make it too often. Sounds like a perfect dinner after a busy day.

    We went to a firefighters basketball game. They played the Harlem Superstars (think Harlem Globetrotters type of team). Then there was a Chinese buffet at a local restaurant for invited guests. So I didn't have to cook last night. A bonus for sure.

    1. Oh that sounds like fun, Mary Lou. Nice bonus that you did not have to cook! :)

  2. That looks so yummy and warming! It's still chilly enough to want soup here!
