    Directions:

    1. 1
      Fry bacon until crisp (see Homemade Fresh Bacon Bits for homemade bacon bit tips). Remove to paper towels to drain. Reserve bacon grease.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, boil potatoes in a large dutch oven in water; do not add salt! Drain.
    3. 3
      Pour reserved bacon grease into empty dutch oven; saute onion and garlic in reserved bacon grease until onion is lightly browned.
    4. 4
      Add flour to the sauted onion mixture, stirring to evenly brown; add cream and stir constantly until mixture thickens; add chicken broth and stir until bubbly.
    5. 5
      Stir potatoes, corn and crumbled bacon into the soup; add butter, salt and pepper to taste. (you may not need salt. Bacon is very salty) Simmer until butter is melted and stirred into soup.
    6. 6
      Add milk at little at a time if soup is too thick for your tastes.

      What an excellent recipe! We were sitting here watching "While You Were Out" being lazy - neither of us wanted to cook. Suddenly I had the urge for Potatoe Soup. I picked the first 5 star that I came across. Added an extra cup of chicken broth and instead of bacon I used turkey bacon - very nice! I also added 2 Tbsp of Parsley Flakes. Thanks Karen, this recipe will definately be part of menu!

      I made this tonight for dinner and it was fantastic! I added some grated cheddar cheese on top of each bowl for and added touch.. By the way, my husband says we should rate this as 6 out of 5 and recommend it for a weekly treat...he loved it!!
