A great, comforting side dish. Add a cup of this soup to your meal's protein choice for a satisfying, warming comfort meal. If you want to use one of your protein choices as bacon, crumble it up and pile it on top the soup with maybe a sprinkling of sliced green onion.
In a three quart pot, place diced potatoes, butter, diced onion, salt, and pepper. Add enough water to NOT QUITE cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil and cover. Reduce heat to a slow boil and boil for 35 minutes, or until potatoes start falling apart when stirred vigorously. While holding lid on tightly, shake the pan vigorously! Stir and mash larger pieces of potato against the sides of the pot and stir resulting mash back into the soup. It should be very thick. Add the milk and heat back up. Serve.
