I’ve made potato soup many times and each time I try to change the recipe a little. Today I am sharing a simple recipe for cream of potato soup with bacon. All ingredients are easy to find and it doesn’t take a very long time to make it.
- 6 medium potatoes
- 2 cups milk
- 2 cups chicken stock
- 1 cup water
- 1 small chopped onion
- salt and black pepper to taste
- chives — (or fresh garlic)
- 5 pieces bacon
Peel potatoes and cut into medium pieces. Boil them in salted water over medium to high heat for 30-40 minutes.
Cook bacon and set to drain on a plate covered with paper towel. Reserve 2 tbsp bacon fat.
In a pot cook onion in bacon fat for 2-3 minutes.
Add cooked potatoes, water, milk and chicken stock. Add black pepper.
Cook on medium heat for 30 minutes.
Transfer to a blender and blend until very small chunks of potato remain.
Pour in a large bowl or pot and season with salt.
Serve with crumbled bacon and chopped chives (or fresh garlic) on top. You can also add cheese.
So easy to make and flavorful!
