1 3/4 ounce ham base
2 quarts chicken stock
8 ounces yellow onion, diced
3 ounces margarine
2 pounds potatoes, cut bite size
1 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups milk
3 ounces flour
3 ounces margarine


Combine chicken stock in sauce pan with ham base. Stir until lumps are gone. In separate stock pot: melt first margarine measurement; add onion and saute until transparent. Add potato pieces and pepper. Add chicken stock mix and stir until well mixed. Bring mixture to a boil.

In small pan, melt second margarine measure and add flour to create a roux. It should be light brown in color. When stock comes to a boil, add roux with a wire whisk. This will cause the soup to start thickening. Return to a boil. Slowly add the milk.

If the soup is too thin, make additional roux and add it to the soup. If you need to do this, be sure to cook the roux until a tan color. This will get rid of the raw flour taste. If the soup is too thick, thin it out with more milk.

I've made this soup several times ... And I leave the ham base out. Too salty. Otherwise perfect.

What is ham base? Would like to try this recipe.

It is a soup base, check in your grocery store near the broth and bouillon

THis is the exact recipe! This will yield perfect soup. There is just one thing. Do not add the milk while the soup is boiling. Keep it at a low simmer, add the milk. Let simmer for 5 minutes then remove from heat. It will continue to thicken as it cools.
