Directions:
Put sliced potatoes and onion into larger saucepan, just cover with water. Add salt to flavor potatoes, about 1 tsp. Bring to boil and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer potatoes 10-15 minutes until potatoes are fork tender. Drain most of water, leaving about a cup behind. Add milk to saucepan with potatoes and last of the water. Add 4 T butter and heat through, do not boil. Salt and pepper to taste. You can mash the potatoes for a thicker soup consistency, or add a cornstarch or flour slurry. We like this just as a thinner soup. Add bacon or ham for a meatier soup or add in some shredded cheese. Very versatile, and easy.
