  1. In a large pot over high heat, combine the potatoes, onions and water to cover and boil for 30 to 45 minutes, or until tender. Drain the mixture, reserving 3 cups of the water. Transfer this in small batches to a blender and puree until smooth.
  2. In the same pot over medium heat, combine the flour and the butter, stirring together well, to form a roux. Slowly add the milk, stirring constantly, until well blended. Reduce heat to low and add the pureed potato mixture. Let simmer, stirring occasionally for 5 to 10 minutes. Add the parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Great basic recipe. I however added a lot of extra spices such as seasoning salt. Also I omitted the parsley, i honestly hate that stuff ha, instead I used another seasoning which is made up o...

This recipe, in my opinion, has too many onions. I reduced the potatoes in half but only added two onions. My house smelled like onion for days. I enjoyed the flavor though.

Perfect consistency for cream of potato. I tweaked it to make a cream of potato and broccoli. If that was your plan, too, keep in mind creaming and adding broccoli makes it bland, but Worcesters...

This recipe was delicious and cheap. I found myself adding ALOT of salt though to kick up the taste. Next time I may use some kind of garlic salt or season salt instead of just table salt. I als...
