I got this recipe from my Mom, I have not made it yet but she has and she loves it, she says it is great for warming up on a cold winter day. The cook time includes the rice cooking.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cover wild rice with water in a medium sized saucepan.
  2. Simmer over low heat about 40 minutes until rice is barely tender, taking care not to overcook.
  3. Drain and set aside.
  4. Combine water and butter in a soup kettle.
  5. Add grated potatoes and minced onions.
  6. Reserving 1/4 cup milk, pour remaining milk into kettle.
  7. Simmer on low stirring often to avoid scorching.
  8. Add flour to remaining milk and stir into kettle until soup is creamy and smooth in texture.
  9. Season with salt and pepper.
  10. Stir in rice, parsley flakes, cheese and bacon.
  11. Heat until cheese melts.

A fairly easy soup to put together with decent flavor. I let it cook a little too long, so the texture was not quite what I hoped for, but that was no fault of the recipe. Good on a cold winter day.
