How to Make Creamy Cheesy Bacon Potato Soup

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a 6 quart Dutch oven or Stock Pot, Scrub & cube potatoes. Add them to the pot. Cover potatoes with cold water. Heat on Medium-high heat until boiling. Reduce heat to a simmer. Cook potatoes until tender.Do Not Drain.
  • 2Using a Potato Masher, mash potatoes. Once potatoes are somewhat small,use an Emersion Hand-Blender to puree potatoes. It should become thick. Add salt to taste.Turn stove to low.
  • 3In a skillet, fry bacon. Reserve back 2 Tablespoons Bacon dripings.( I use a metal can to put my bacon dripings in and cover with foil,then put in fridge to use at a later time to flavor green beans or use instead of butter; say in making pancakes etc.)Turn soup to low-medium heat now.
  • 4With remaining drippings,add diced onions to skillet until sauted,then spoon out into soup. Add 2 cups cheese and shredded carrot to soup now. Stir with ladel. Top individual bowls of soup with crumbled bacon & chopped green onions.
