Baked Potato Soup


Baked Potato Soup
Recipe from AllRecipes

Notes: I didnt have bacon so I used some bacon fat to cook the onions and garlic in, Also I added in a bag of frozen mixed veggies at the end because we wanted more veggies. SOOo good and filling. I will definitely make this again and again. Ohh forgot to say and so EASY it is :)

Ohh I cooked my potatoes in the chicken broth til tender, I didnt have any baked

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 bacon strips, diced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil ( I used half this amt)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 large baked potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • Shredded Cheddar cheese
  • Minced fresh parsley


DIRECTIONS

  1. In a large saucepan, cook bacon until crisp. Drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. Set bacon aside. Saute onion and garlic in the drippings until tender. Stir in flour, salt, basil and pepper; mix well. Gradually add broth. Bring to boil; boil and stir for 2 minutes. Add the potatoes, cream and hot pepper sauce; heat through but do not boil. Garnish with bacon, cheese and parsley.

Mmmm, I so wish the colder, okay cooler weather would get here! I'm ready for soup, chili, and chowder. Yours looks good especially with the broccoli peaking out.
