Simple and Delicious Potato Soup

This is Mom's recipe and it's one of the best recipes I know of for potato soup. The secret is the evaporated milk. it just doesn't taste the same if you substitute any other milk. The other ingredients are few and that's the best way to make anything.

The recipe has never been written down, so I've done the best I could. If you don't follow it exactly, it will be good anyway, as long as you add the evaporated milk!


  • Two to three medium potatoes, diced
  • A half onion, minced
  • Enough water to cover by a couple of inches. 
  • One can of evaporated milk
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Bring to a boil, cover and turn the heat down then simmer gently until potatoes are tender. Remove from heat and add the evaporated milk and salt and pepper to taste.

You can add other things, of course, cooked and crumbled bacon, tuna, minced sweet peppers or whatever you like, but it's fine without anything added.

A pan of cornbread goes really well with this.
