Potato Soup Mix

This time of year it's so good to have a jar of potato soup in the pantry. This soup is made with dry ingredients that can be stored indefinitely in a glass jar or a plastic container (both need a lid). How about making it as a gift to give to someone you know will enjoy it? I make a double batch and keep it right on the kitchen counter in a large nice looking glass jar, and as you can see, it's almost time for me to make another batch - it goes fast. It's so simple and basic you'll enjoy warming up with this cup of goodness.

  • 1 3/4 cups of instant mashed potato flakes
  • 1 1/2 cups dry milk powder
  • 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper *
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons seasoning salt **
*  Adjust the amount of pepper to your liking; my preference is 1/8 teaspoon.
**Although the recipe calls for seasoning salt I never use it and it still tastes great.

  1. Combine potato flakes, dry milk, bouillon granules, onion, parsley, pepper, thyme, turmeric and seasoning salt in a bowl and stir to mix. Pour into a 1 quart container.
  2. Attach the following instructions: To serve, place 1/2 cup of the soup mix in a bowl or large cup. Stir in 1 cup of boiling hot water until smooth.
  3. Enjoy - take the chill off!
