Food My Grandmother Made - Potato Soup
Grandma's Potato Soup:
1 lb. ground beef or turkey
6-8 potatoes, peeled & diced (count on 1 potato per person)
1/2 onion, chopped
apx. 3/4 cup of flour (depending on how thick you want your soup)
6-8 cups of water and/or chicken or beef broth (I used half water and half broth and it gave it a nice flavor)
salt & pepper to taste
Heat 3-4 tbsp. of oil into a stock pot and saute the onion and ground beef or turkey till almost cooked through. Add the flour and stir, then add the water/broth. Boil on medium high heat for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are soft. Serve nice and hot with buttered bread for dipping.
*Halfway through cooking, if your soup is looking a little watery (as mine did), take about 1 cup of the water out of the pot, stir in 1-2 tbsp of flour and add back to the pot.
