Share Button

I come from a long line of potato lovers, perhaps this is because my Irish Grandmother insisted that potatoes were served with every meal but if I typed that I’d be guilty of stereotyping right? Cough. It’s been 5 months since my fantastic parents moved into our home and knowing my Mum’s love of potatoes I’ve been amassing copious amounts of potato recipes to try. My most recent favourite is a Cream of Potato Bacon Soup recipe which Mum ad I played with until we hit a winner.

Ingredients:

Cream of Potato Bacon soup recipe ingredients

  • 8 good sized potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 pound of bacon, cut into slices
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 red onion, cut into slices
  • 4 cups of chicken stock
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 1 cup of sour cream for garnish
  • 1/4 cup green onion for garnish
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

Begin by cooking the bacon in a dutch oven until it’s at your desired crispness. Once bacon is done, remove it from the pot and drain all but 1/4 cup of the grease. Add the onions and garlic to the bacon grease and saute until the onion turns clear and softens. Add in the cubed potatoes,mix to ensure they’re well coated in the grease. Saute for  4 minutes and add in the bacon. Now you’ll pour in enough chicken stock to just cover the potatoes. Put on the lid and simmer until the potatoes are tender.
