Ingredients

By: Our Mom =)

  • 1/2 Cup Onion chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 Potatoes Med.
  • 2 cubes chicken bouillon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 8 oz cream cheese room temp
  • 1/4 Cup flour
  • 3 Cups milk I use skim or 1% & it still turns out rich & yummy

Instructions

  • Saute onion in butter in a medium sized stock pot.
  • Add potatoes, bouillon, water, and salt.
  • Cover & bring to a boil.
  • Cook 15 min. or until potatoes are tender.
  • Meanwhile, blend cream cheese and flour until smooth.
  • When potatoes are soft, stir the cream cheese mixture in. It will be thick and clumpy, keep stirring.
  • When it is mixed as evenly as possible without smashing the potatoes, add the milk, and anything else you want (baked potato toppings).
  • Bring up to a simmer, stirring often to prevent scorching.
  • Simmer at least one hour (sometimes I eat it as soon as it's heated through-still good).
