Creamy Potato & Bacon Soup

I found a recipe for potato soup that I loved - then I lost it :( I searched online for it but never found it. I did find one with similar ingredients, so I used it and tweaked it a bit. I have to give credit to the original recipe which was on Allrecipes(dot)com. It was my inspiration.

directions

  • Cook bacon until crisp in large pot. Remove and drain well on paper towels. Discard most of the bacon grease. Leave about a tablespoon of grease in the pot.
  • Meanwhile, prepare vegetables. Add carrot and celery to the pot on medium heat. Add a bit of salt and pepper. Saute until soft but not brown, about 5 minutes, stirring often.
  • Stir in chicken broth, potatoes, and cayenne pepper; add a bit of salt and pepper, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, covered, until potatoes are tender, about 10-15 minutes.
  • Scoop out about 1/3 of the veggies and place in a mixing bowl. Using a hand-held blender, blend the veggies until the consistency of creamed potatoes. Add back to the soup and stir in half & half until the soup is the consistency you prefer. Add about half of the bacon. Stir in cheese, heating just until melted--do not boil. Adjust seasoning to taste by adding salt, if desired. Serve with bacon, cheese, and green onions as garnish.
