  • 3/4 oz Ham base
  • 8 cups Chicken stock
  • 8 oz Yellow onion dice
  • 3 oz Margarine
  • 2 lb Potatoes bite size
  • 1 1/2 tsp Black pepper
  • 2 cup Milk
  • 3 oz Flour
  • 3 oz 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 sauté until transparent. Add potato bite size 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.
