Very basic, very simple soup. Potatoes are boiled, then mashed. Evaporated milk is blended in and some salt and white pepper is used to season the soup. Serve hot, or you can reheat in a microwave or double boiler.

I make this same soup but don't cover the potatoes and add a sliced onion, cook them 30 min or so without a cover (most of the water will evaporate) Mash the mixture up slightly with a potato masher. Then I scald 1 qt. skim milk in the microwave and add that. Add just a shake of Tabasco sauce, salt & pepper, and you have a low-fat, soul warming soup. For leftover next day, I sometimes add 1 can baby clams and heat. My husband loves this. (He adds a pat of butter to his bowl.) It's the first soup I make every fall.

I was looking to see if they had this recipe as it is basically the way I have been making it for years. This is a great basic recipe and you cannot beat real boiled potatos for soup.(The flakes don't hold a candle). I add onions and bacon sauteed in butter but if you want to avoid the heart attack :-) you can skip it and just use different seasonings to spice it up. Thanks for posting!! Sometimes simple is better!
