Potato Soup with Bacon

On miserably cold, snowy days, I make soup. We have a lot of days like this in Central New York, so I make a lot of soup! This is my classic potato soup recipe. We like to add bacon bits or ham. You can also add onions, mushrooms, carrots, celery or even broccoli if you’d like. It’s a classic hot and creamy soup to warm you up on a cold day. 

Ingredients:
3 tbsp butter
1 tbsp flour
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1/4 cup water
1 cup half & half
4 cups 2% milk
5-6 medium potatoes, cut into small pieces
1 tsp each: salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion salt
2-3 tbsp of Real Bacon bits
Potato Soup IngredientsMelt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add flour and stir with butter until well mixed. Dissolve bouillon cubes in about 1/2 cup of hot water and add to flour and butter mixture and stir. Add the half & half and milk into the pot and mix well. Add potatoes. Sprinkle salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion salt. Stir well. Cook over medium heat until bubbly. Add bacon bits to soup.

Turn to low heat for about an hour. Stir frequently. You may want to mash up some of the potatoes as they soften to help thicken the soup. Ladle into soup bowls, sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese, serve with fresh rolls and enjoy!
