    Directions:

    1. 1
      Peel and dice potatoes.
    2. 2
      dice the celery, carrot and onion (if you have a small food chopper it makes this much easier).
    3. 3
      cut bacon in small bite sized pieces and pan fry until done but not crisp. Save 1 tablespoon of drippings.
    4. 4
      using a large dutch oven melt the butter and add the tablespoon of bacon drippings.
    5. 5
      saute' the onion, celery and carrots, garlic, pepper in the margarine until softened.
    6. 6
      add the diced potatoes with the water and chicken broth along with both packages of au gratin potatoes both the potatoes and the sauce packages. make sure all the potatoes and vegetables are covered with fluid (water and chicken broth). Add most of the browned bacon keeping some out to garnish the top of each individual bowl.
    7. 7
      If you need to add more liquid add equal parts chicken broth and water.
    8. 8
      boil on medium high heat for 40 minutes or until all potatoes are softened.
    9. 9
      Watch your liquid. It evaporates quickly. Add equal parts water and chicken broth. If you have to add liquid add 1/2 cup broth 1/2 cup water to start and keep adding liquid in this fashion. A lot depends on your altitude. Just keep a close eye on it.

      Yummy soup. I halved the recipe and we really enjoyed the creaminess of this soup. Very simple and delish. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2014.

      This soup is great! I made 1/2 the recipe and the only change I made was that I sauteed the veggies in a little of the bacon grease rather than margarine. It is very creamy and seasoned well. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
