I don't like to put butter in my potato soup. It separates, rises to the top, and looks gross.

When I tried butter, it was in a crockpot recipe, and I had a big puddle of it on top :P

Here's what I do (I've posted it b4, but not lately):

about 4 cans chicken broth I like low fat--you will be adding cream later!
a few potatoes cut up, I like to leave the skin on
a sprinkle of thyme
garlic to taste
a medium onion, chopped
a bit of sage
1/2 lb cheddar cheese
8 oz cream
enough corn starch to thicken
fresh ground pepper

Cook everything but cream, cheese, and corn starch in a crockpot until potatoes are done.
Mix the cream and CS.
Add cream/CS and cheese and heat thru.

PS you can add bacon or ham, too.
I've also added basil sometimes.

I think corn starch is a better thickening agent than flour.
You use less, so it dilutes the flavor less.

AZ, when do you add the bacon? At the end? When I put it in early, it gets soggy.

I can live w/o the bacon fat. I just crumble them on top when I serve. And I put none inside in case I am serving people who can't eat that.

I don't use corn starch, there is enough thickening agent in it with potatoes, but why ever add a can of soup for this?

^^ Can you do the same with corn? Does it have to be creamed corn? Do you need to add anything else?

Smith ... here's a couple of corn soup recipes for you.

Corn soup with roasted poblano chilis

6 ears corn
1/4 cup butter
Salt and pepper to taste
3 cups water
1/4 cup whipping cream
2 roasted poblano chilis, peeled and minced

With sharp knife, remove corn kernels from cobs. Melt butter in heavy-bottomed pot. Add corn and season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss corn in butter over medium heat. After a few minutes, add water and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally so corn does not stick to bottom. After 15 minutes, remove from heat and cool slightly. Pour into blender and blend until smooth. Press through medium-fine sieve to smooth texture. Add cream to correct consistency. Adjust seasonings to taste. Heat until just hot. Garnish with poblano chilis.

Note: "There's an incredible smoky taste in this soup from the roasted poblano chilis. It comes from Alice Waters' "Chez Panisse Menu Cookbook" (Random House: 1982), and it was one of the favorites with the tasters in The Times Test Kitchen". From article "Corn, The American Grain," Los Angeles Times, Food Section, July 1, 1993.

Corn soup with red pepper swirl
"Straight From The Cob" Recipe by Canadian Living Test Kitchen

1 tbsp. butter
2 onions, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. dried sage, crumbled
4 cups corn kernels
2 tbsp. all purpose flour
1-1/2 cups chicken stock
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1 sweet red pepper, roasted, peeled and seeded
2 tbsp. milk
1 tsp. jalapeno pepper, minced OR pinch cayenne
1/2 tsp. salt, or to taste
1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper, or to taste

In saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cook onions, garlic and sage, covered and stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until softened. Stir in corn; cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Remove 1 cup; set aside. Stir in flour to coat vegetables; cook for 1 minute. Pour in stock and bring to boil, stirring frequently; reduce heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes or until thickened. In food processor or blender, pure soup, in batches if necessary; returning to saucepan. Stir in reserved corn mixture, milk and salt; heat through but do not boil.

Red Pepper Sauce: Meanwhile, in blender, pure red pepper, milk, jalapeno, salt and pepper. Using spoon, attractively swirl about 2 tbsp. into each soup bowlful.

Roasted Peppers: To roast sweet red peppers, grill or broil over medium-high heat, turning often, until peppers are puffed and charred all over. Or roast in 375°F oven for 30 minutes or until browned. Let cool; peel and seed.

(Normally, I don't go here, but there is that "living in glass houses; not throwing stones" thing AND . . .

"accompanied with AND 's'"??? "I can't believe that no one SAY that."???


But, on to the subject at hand . . . .

I got this idea from Allrecipes, but winged it because I had some leftover scalloped potatoEs and it sounded like a good idea.

First, I make my scalloped potatoEs with thinly sliced potatoEs, thinly sliced onion, diced peppers, ham and cream of mushroom soup (the recipe for the mushroom soup is msg. #9 on the "Any good soup recipes?" thread. I cannot rave enough about that recipe; I make it all the time and freeze it and use it in any recipe that calls for cream of mushroom soup. Normally, I use portabella mushrooms.).

Because I live alone, I cook small and only had one serving of scalloped potatoEs left, so I used all of the elements in the soup (I boiled another potato in a small amount of water, added some onion, pepper (mashed it up with a potato masher), ham and another container of mushroom soup) and threw in the leftover scalloped potatoEs and thinned it all out with half-and-half.

It totally rocked.

(Please forgive any typoEs--oops!!)
