Delicious Potato Soup

jocasta s


I love to make soup. My family loves to eat soup. This one is satisfying and rich without being over seasoned. Enjoy!

Note: This is an indulgent food. Use at least 2% milk. But whole milk makes it fantastic and absolutely satisfying.

potatoes, medium russet
4-6 slice
2 Tbsp
large onion - finely chopped
1 clove
garlic - chopped
1/3 c
4 c
chicken broth
2 c
whole milk
salt and pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

Peel, wash, and cut potatoes into 1 inch chunks. Place in large microwavable bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for approx. 10 minutes. They should be soft all the way through (test one by eating it ;)). But don't burn yourself taking the plastic off (like I frequently do)
Chop bacon into small pieces and fry in large dutch oven till crisp. Remove bacon to bowl and leave grease. Add butter (2 Tbsp is a guide, it will depend on how much grease you get from your bacon. You want about 3-4 Tbsp total fat).
Soften onion and garlic in fat for approx 5 minutes over med heat. Onions should be soft, garlic not burnt. Season with salt and pepper.
Add flour and stir. Cook, stirring, for about a minute. Raise heat to high and slowly add two cups of broth. Whisk constantly till thick and bubbling. Add remaining broth and milk and cook till thick and bubbly.
Add bacon bits (reserving 2Tbsp for garnish if you wish) and all but about 1 cup of taters. Puree with hand blender till smooth. Chop remaining taters into bit sized pieces and add to pot.
Green onions, cilantro, and bacon make fantastic toppings. Cheese could also be used. Serve with crackers or rolls.
