Bette's Creamy Potato Soup

Yield: 4 servings


  • 8 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups Half & Half
  • 2 chick bouillon cubes
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


In a large pot put in potatoes and cover with water. Boil until fork-tender. Drain and set aside.

In a stockpot, melt the butter over low heat, add the onion, and gently sauté until soft and translucent (do not brown). Add the potatoes, cream, Half & Half, bouillon cubes, milk, salt and pepper. Simmer over low heat until thickened and thoroughly heated, about 30 minutes. If you would like a thicker soup, add a little cornstarch or flour.
