This soup is quick and easy, and so delicious; the perfect soup for a cool Autumn day. I created the recipe one day when I had some leftover bacon, a hunk of smoked gouda, a few potatoes and some milk and cream that needed to be used soon, so... viola! A new soup! Don't forget the chives; they add another great level of flavor.

How to Make EASY CHEESY BACON POTATO SOUP

Step-by-Step

  1. Gather and prep ingredients (shred cheese, peel and cube potatoes etc...)
  2. Pour 4 cups milk into a 2 or 3 quart saucepan; add cubed potatoes, 1 teaspoon sea salt and a grind of black pepper. Bring milk and potatoes to the boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently to avoid scorching. Immediately reduce heat to low/medium-low. Let simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Test a piece of potato with a fork to check for tenderness. When tender, remove from heat; stir in 2 cups cheese.
  4. When cheese has melted, stir in bacon pieces and 1/4 cup cream. Taste for seasoning; adjust accordingly, if needed.
  5. Ladle into bowls. Garnish with grated cheese, chives and bacon bits (the most important being chives.) Serve hot. Refrigerate leftovers.
