Potato Dill Soup

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

Hi Everybear, today I am Chef Prudence and wanted to share Mom's soup recipe with you.

2 T. butter or margarine
4 cups peeled, diced potatoes(russets)
1 large onion chopped
1.5 cups water
2 cups milk (I use 2%)
1 T chopped fresh dill (I use double)
2 T all purpose flour
1 cup sour cream (reduced fat)
Using 2 quart saucepan, melt butter/margarine.  Stir in onions, cook 2 minutes, stirring until soft (do not brown).  Stir in potatoes, cook 2 minutes but do not brown.  Add water and bring to boil, cover pan and simmer 15minutes until you can mash potatoes leaving small pieces.  Add milk, dill and bring to a boil.  Stir flour into sour cream, blend into soup with WOODEN SPOON.  Remove from heat, let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

*I also add a pinch of dried oregano and a pinch of garlic when I remove from heat.
I serve with freshly made garlic bread.

  1. Well thank you chef Prudence! Potato soup is one of my favorites. Well try this recipe soon.


  2. Hello, dear Prudence. You are up late to-nite!
    Me, too, I can't sleep. I'm thinking of all the
    sewing that needs to be done here?
    What have you been up to lately?
    Mom's soup recipe sounds de-lish!
    Thanks, Joyce.

  3. ...oh...really nice!!! Have a wonderful we. NI

  4. Hi Chef Prudence,

    Looks yummie to me...will try the recipe...

    Hugs,Happy weekend!! xx Give my love to Mom !!

  5. Hey Prudence,
    That looks like interesting soup, but are you sure a 2 quart - that's half a gallon - pot will be big enough? After all there's 2 tons each of butter, flour and dill. Won't the taters be swamped? Or can't I read US recipes? Maybe the cups you use are steel mill size:-)
    I'll try it on Ann maybe she can understand it better.

    Share that badge you big meanie.



  6. Hi Prudence, you sure look a good cook. Granny said the recipe sounds scrummy.
    Now what is that Lulu doing with that precious badge. She need a good talking to. What is she looses it?????*****^^^^
    Happy cooking
    Hugs Wilbur

  11. Hi Prudence,
    We're going to try this recipe out for dinner tonight. Our mom is making her meatloaf and we think this will be perfect with it. Thanks for sharing your mom's recipe with us.
