My friend Vonnie gave me this recipe years ago. It’s a good thick soup that fills you up. For some reason, men seem to really like it. I dunno why, they just do. It does have many different salts, evaporated milk, ham, potatoes . . . that’s probably why they like it.
Potatoes (I use whatever potatoes I have on hand)
Onion (I’ve used White, Yellow & Spanish)
1 can Evaporated Milk
Cut up enough potatoes to fill your cooking pot 1/2-3/4 full (leave skins on). Cut up 1/2-full onion and a couple of celery stalks, toss in. Cover the potatoes with water. Bring to boil for 20 minutes.
Do not drain the water. Add 1 can evaporated milk. Mash potatoes with masher. May need to add a splash of regular milk.
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Garlic powder/salt
1 tsp Lawry’s’ Salt
Cook on low for a little while. Really great the next day.
