Creamy Potato Bacon Soup Recipe: Delicious! I have been making this potato soup recipe for years and everyone loves it and asks me to make it time and time again.
8 Large Potatoes (cubed)
1 Medium Onion (diced)
3 Stalks of Celery (diced)
3 Large Carrots (diced)
3 Cloves of Garlic (minced)
1 Pound Thick Cut Bacon (cooked and chopped for garnish)
2 Large Containers of Chicken Stock
1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1/4 Cup Flour
1/4 Cup Butter
Salt and Pepper
Directions: In a large soup pot fry up your bacon. Once crispy remove the bacon from the pot and set aside. Drain off all but a 1/4 cup of bacon grease.
Add the onions and celery to the soup pot with bacon grease and sweat until they are translucent. Next add in carrots, potatoes and garlic, stir and coat with bacon grease. Cook for 3-5 minutes.
Pour enough chicken stock in your pot to cover your potatoes and carrots. Cover and simmer until the potatoes are tender. I smash some of the potatoes to make the soup thicker.
In a sauce pan add your butter and flour and stir continuously for 1 to 2 minutes. Add your heavy whipping cream. Bring to a boil to thicken, stirring constantly. Add your cream mixture to your soup to thicken. Be sure to heat through.
Your soup is ready to serve. We garnished our soup with a handful of chopped bacon, shredded cheddar cheese and diced green onions.
