I have been searching for recipe just like this!!! Am excited to try; may add a small amount of ham, (maybe)

Seems like it would be kind of bland.But I will give it a try.

You'll get a lot more flavor if you caramilize the onion with a couple of tablespoons of butter in the saucepan before adding the potatoes and the water. After you add the milk, stir in about 1/2 cup of instant mashed potato flakes for a nice thick, stick to your ribs soup.

I guess it would be ok to add some real mashed potatoes instead of instant. Right? I no longer buy instant.
