Plain Potato Soup
- 8-9 Medium potatoes
- 3 cups chicken broth (or 3 bouillon cubes with 3 cups water)
- 1 cup water
- 2 teaspoons dried chopped onions
- grated cheddar cheese
- salt and pepper
Peel potatoes, clean and slice into large hunks (around 1/2 of an inch - 3/4 of an inch). Place potatoes, water, broth, dried onions in a 4 quart saucepan. Boil until potatoes show softening around the edges. Skim scum from top of water. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 10-15 more minutes. Stir potatoes so that pieces will break from the edges to thicken the water a bit. When the soup is the consistency that you like, remove from heat. Taste soup, add salt and peeper if needed. Pour into serving bowls, sprinkle with cheese.
Note: The broth can be any flavor that you prefer, chicken, beef, or vegetable. If you use bouillon cubes you can mix flavors, such as 2 chicken and 1 beef.
