Baked Potato Soup
“prep work”- start chopping onions
Put aside in bowl your chopped onions, celery, and carrots
Fry your bacon on med/high heat until cooked through
Place bacon on plate covered with a paper towel to drain
Saute vegetables in the left over bacon grease- this will give the soup a nice bacon flavor
Peel potatoes- this takes only 5-8 mins
Let vegetables saute for about 5 mins until softened
Add flour to the sauteed vegetables and wisk together to make a pasty consistency
Whisk in chicken broth
Bring to a boil on stove. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender (about 20 mins)
Add cheddar cheese
Stir in cheese
For garnish, I recommend adding a touch of shredded cheese, chopped green onions and bacon. Salt and pepper as desired.
½ lb bacon
½ cup chopped celery
½ cup chopped carrot
½ cup chopped onion
3 tbsp all purpose flour
2 cups canned chicken broth
2 cups milk
10-12 russet potatoes peeled and diced
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Garnish- chopped green onions, additional cheese and crumbled bacon. Fry bacon in a skillet, place on paper towel to drain and preserve 2 tbsp of bacon grease in skillet. Add celery, carrot, and onion and sauté until they soften (5 mins). Add flour and stir. Whisk in broth and milk. Add potatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 20 mins. Add cheese and stir. Season as desired with salt and pepper. Add garnish as desired.
I LOVE that today's Tasty Tuesday recipe is potato soup! It's on my menu for tomorrow night, but I was unhappy with my recipe that I tried last! I am definitely doing this one tomorrow! Thanks so much!!!
YUMMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That looks so scrumptious! I've made one similar, but this one looks even better!
Love, Traci @ Ordinary Inspirations
Oh my, that looks so good! I will need to make that soon! Thank you for sharing
Potato soup…mmmm. I found a recipe last fall that was ok, but this one looks much better. I will be putting it on my menu very soon!
Yum! This sounds absolutely scrumptious!! 🙂
Looks delicious ~Will definitely be trying this recipe. We love potato soup. I'm thankful it uses regular, common ingredients.
We're mainly vegetarian here (about 90%). This recipe is the perfect "rare meat" recipe for us. LOVE the flavor of bacon. Will use half the bacon in this recipe and save the other half for my yummy breakfast casserole (which we eat for dinner with fresh fruit and yogurt topped with some ground flax seed). My next week's meal planning just got easier. 😉 THANKS!
So, do you add everything and cook in the skillet that you fried the bacon? The recipe reads like that, but I don't think my skillet would be big enough.
Thanks, I can't wait to try this 🙂
That looks fantastic!
Oh yummy! I love potato soup. This recipe looks so delicious. Thanks for sharing. I can't wait to try it.
Hi Ladies! So glad you like the recipe! I made this a couple of weeks ago and am wishing I had a bowl right now!!! Graciously Y- You can certainly make this in a pot if you don't have a skillet that is deep/wide enough…simply saute the veggies at the bottom of the pot and add the rest! Cooking for the King, Janelle
That looks so good! I have a potato soup recipe that I haven't made in awhile, but this looks even better with the bacon and lots of veggies!
I love that you have veggies in this recipe! I haven't made potato soup in forever, and mine is certainly nothing to get excited about!
It looks so good! I'll definitely try this.
How yummy! I always love a good bowl of potato soup!
Oh my gosh! I dont even like soup and that looks amazing!!!!!
Great tutorial and what a beautiful soup!! Thank you!
Oh YUM!!! That looks so good. And it reminds me of bean soup, which is one of my favorite. I think it's made almost the same way, except that you add a lot of yellow beans to it. Man, I'm hungry for that soup now.
Thanks Ladies, Enjoy! It's so refreshing to know you are serving your families in this way..if you ever have questions with a recipe, let me know. Also, to the ladies out there who are not "comfortable in the kitchen" know that there is no condemnation with the Lord. Let's work together -I know you can do this.(anyone up to teaching me how to sew? lol) Much love to you! Janelle
That looks absolutely delicious! And not super-hard! Definitely added to the menu this week :).
This recipe looks wonderful! I am vegetarian so I'll make it without the bacon and see how it turns out!
I do have a question- what is the tool you used to dice the veggies so perfectly? I use this thing called a Vidalia Chop which I love, but I don't know what to replace it with if it breaks! 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Hi Laura! I use an "Alligator" ! It is a simple 2 part mechanism that is easy to use and clean. I am on the look out for a slicer…if you find a good one let me know!
I made the soup yesterday for dinner. My husband loved it. I didn't have any celery or chives on hand and I only had 7 redskin potatoes, but it still tasted great! It made enough for a bowl for me, two bowls for my husband and one ladle full each for four of my young children.(they are not big eaters!)My husband said he would like it with more broth so next time I'm going to double the milk and chicken broth! Thanks for sharing the recipe on Raising Homemakers!
Darcy, thank you for your input! That is awesome!
Looks delish! I must ask – what gadget did you use to chop the onion? I've been doing it the old fashioned way for years…am I missing out on something? 🙂
I saw that you commented about learning to sew. I've been doing it for years and I love it. You should take a beginners class at JoAnn Fabrics. It's not hard – it just takes some practice to get going.
I use something called an "alligator" it is a very easy and useful gadget!
My sweet husband bought me a sewing machine from Jo-anns and lessons came with it..I went to 1 lesson. I came home and got so flustered with the bobber! I made one burp cloth. Perhaps one day! I admire women who can sew!!! What a wonderful gift.
Thank You for sharing such a great Recipe. I made it for dinner and it was a huge hit! 🙂
Cammie, Thanks for your feedback…so happy you enjoyed it! Blessed to serve you 🙂 ~Janelle
This looks so yummy! I am definitely going to have to give this recipe a try. Thanks for sharing:)
I am not sure if it is too late for comments, but this looks wonderful and I would LOVE to make it for dinner tonight, but I am not sure how many it will feed. We have a family of 8 (and some of us eat alot) I would LOVE input from those of you who have made it 🙂 Thanks
