Recipe: Potato Soup

Autumn is soup weather, and reader Nelda G. was kind enough to share with us this hearty recipe for potato soup.

4 cups of potatoes cut into small chunks (about 4 large potatoes)
1/2 cup diced celery
1 cup diced onion
I diced carrot
4 slices of bacon, diced
smoked sausage cut in pieces (either kielbasa or bratwurst)
2 cups milk
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp oregano
minced parsley

Add vegetables to large pot. Add water to cover. Cook until tender, and mash.

Fry bacon. Add bacon and grease to pot. Add milk and stir until creamy consistency is reached. Add salt and spices and sausage. Cook slowly for another half-hour.

Nelda adds that the flavor improves if the soup is made earlier in the day and left to sit in the refrigerator before being reheated.
