Vonnie’s Potato Soup February 19, 2012

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




Garlic salt/powder

Lawry’s Salt

Ham Chunks

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

Ham Chunks

Cook on low for a little while. Really great the next day.
