Rosie’s Recipe–Potato Soup

Rosie Rob Cover FinalThere’s nothing quite like a bowl of hot soup on a cold winter night. This classic dish comes from Rosie’s Riveting Recipes, and I’m sure many of you may have your own versions in your own family cookbooks. It’s the perfect soup for a cold winter day. Enjoy.



  • 2 cups raw potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1 quart milk
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • pepper

Chop potatoes fine or grate them. Add potatoes, margarine, and onion to the milk. Cook the mixture over low heat until the potatoes are tender, stirring regularly. By that time the starch from the potatoes will have thickened the milk slightly. Add salt and pepper.

Modern Variation: To give this soup some extra zing try adding bacon, ham, or corn. Butter or olive oil may be used instead of margarine.
