The ultimate comfort food! A simple recipe with a load of flavor.
Recipe type: soup
Serves: 6 servings
  • 5 medium Potatoes, cooked and cut into cubes
  • 6 Bacon slices, diced
  • ½ medium Onion, chopped
  • ½ cup all-purpose Flour
  • 1½ cups Heavy cream
  • 4 cups Chicken broth
  • ½ teaspoon dry Basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Heat a dutch oven or heavy soup pot over med-high heat. Add bacon and cook until crisp, remove with a slotted spoon onto a plate lined with paper towels, leaving bacon grease in stockpot.
  2. Reduce heat to medium, add onions and celery. Cook until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle flour over the onions/celery and cook, stirring constantly, about 2 minutes.
  3. Slowly pour in chicken stock, whisking constantly until smooth. Add potatoes, bring to a boil then simmer until potatoes are very soft (15-30 minutes, depending on size of potatoes).
  4. Using a potato masher or something similar, crush some of the potatoes to thicken soup, leaving some chunks. Add heavy cream, bring back to a simmer and cook for an additional 10 minutes until warmed through.
  5. Ladle soup into bowls and top each as desired.
  6. Top with cheddar cheese, bacon and green onions before serving.
