Ingredients

  • 4 large potatoes peeled
  • 32 oz chicken broth
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 4 pieces bacon
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1/2 tsp salt more to taste
  • Pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cook the bacon until crispy, set aside.
  • Saute the diced onion in the bacon grease until tender. Drain and set aside.
  • Chop the potatoes into small chunks.
  • Add the potatoes, chicken broth, onions, salt, and pepper to a large stock pot.
  • Bring the potatoes to a gentle boil, allow to cook until just tender, about 10-15 minutes. You want them soft, but not falling apart.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the milk and flour.
  • Scoop out 1/2 to 2/3 of the potatoes and broth mixture into your blender. Blend using the soup button, or about 30-60 seconds until desired consistency.
  • Add the flour and milk mixture to the remaining potatoes on the stove.
  • Gently pour the blended potatoes back into the stock pot.
  • Remove from heat and fold in the cream.
  • Add remaining chopped bacon and other fixings such as shredded cheese and green onions.
