Nice! At first I thought it was a bit bland after removing from the pot and taking the photo but then realised I'd forgotten the cream and parsely which made a world of difference after returning to the heat and adding.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. cook bacon and garlic in pan til bacon is crisp.
  2. add potato stock and water bring to boil.
  3. reduce heat simmer covered til potato is just tender.
  4. add sour cream stir til heated through.
  5. remove from heat stir in parsley.
  6. IF you want your soup a bit thicker I quickly use a hand held blender and pulse it a couple of times but dont completely blend it or it will be too thick still leave some potato chunks. tastes even better the next day.
  7. you can also use 1kg of bintje or pink fir apple potatoes.
