Delicious Potato Soup

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.

Ingredients

10
potatoes, medium russet
4-6 slice
bacon
2 Tbsp
butter
1
large onion - finely chopped
1 clove
garlic - chopped
1/3 c
flour
4 c
chicken broth
2 c
whole milk
salt and pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
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)
2
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).
3
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.
4
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.
5
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.
6
Green onions, cilantro, and bacon make fantastic toppings. Cheese could also be used. Serve with crackers or rolls.
