Klapsakkaa--- Buttered Potato Soup
Velvetty, creamy potato deliciousness! This soup was one of the Scandinavian dishes we prepared on Sunday in celebration of our Swedish friend Matt's birthday. Looking at the ingredients I didn't expect to like this soup as much as I did, but it had a depth that my potato soup recipe seems to lack and was so easy to make. Whats not to love? PLUS I know I cant be the only one who hates left over mashed potatoes.
Buttered Potato Soup
modified from Scandinavian Cooking by Beatrice Okakangas
2 cups mashed potatoes
4 cups Milk
2 cups half and half
salt and pepper to taste
dash of ground allspice
In a medium saucepan beat potatoes and milk with a whisk till smooth. Stir in half and half and let come to barely a boil. Add salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with a dash of allspice. Garnish each serving with parsley and 1/2 teaspoon of butter.
We added a little bacon and some cheese to the leftovers and it was even better if that is possible!
