How to Make Potato Skins Soup
- Remove blemished areas on potatoes and cut into 1 inch cubes. Add sliced carrots, potatoes to a sauce pan and cover vegetables with water plus an additional inch of water. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until veggies can be mashed easily with a fork. Add boullion and set side. Do not drain water.
- Meanwhile cook bacon crispy. Drain and cool bacon and retain about 2 T of drippings. Remove skillet from heat. Cut bacon into tiny peices. When drippings have cooled a bit add 3 T of flour and gently whisk together. Slowly add milk and whisk over low heat.
- Before flour mixtures bubbles but has begun to warm transfer warm water (1 to 1 and 1/2 cups)from potato and carrot and whisk into skillet. Slowly increase heat and allow to thicken just slightly.
- Before mixtures boils but is very warm, carefully add to potato and carrot sauce pan. Stir in bacon peices and butter. Put on medium heat and mash a few potatoes and carrots and then allow to simmer for 8-10 minutes.
