French Potato SoupFrench Potato Soup


  • ¼ cup butter
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 5 cups boiling water
  • 2 cups potato buds
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 pkg. chopped spinach (unthawed)
  • 1 carton half & half cream

Melt butter. Add onions and simmer awhile. Add boiling water and potato buds, stirring as you add. Add salt and pepper, spinach, then cream. Cook ½ hour. As any soup, if allowed to simmer longer, it gets tastier. If you forget to unthaw the spinach and have more time, drop it in frozen.
