ingredients

directions

  • Fry bacon until crisp (see recipe #242966 for homemade bacon bit tips). Remove to paper towels to drain. Reserve bacon grease.
  • Meanwhile, boil potatoes in a large dutch oven in water; do not add salt! Drain.
  • Pour reserved bacon grease into empty dutch oven; saute onion and garlic in reserved bacon grease until onion is lightly browned.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Add milk at little at a time if soup is too thick for your tastes.

    Just about perfect. It could use a little red pepper flakes but it could not be more simple to make. This has now replaced the old family favorite recipe that I have used for 25 years.

    love this soup! I added the bacon at the end using turkey bacon, and i also put this in a crockpot once the potatoes and soup mixture were cooked. Let cook a little bit more in the crock pot to keep it nice and warm! My whole family loved it!

    Oh, this was so delicious-- and I'm picky! I like my potato soup creamy and not thin or watery and this fit the bill perfectly. I used heavy whipping cream, and instead of bacon (I'm all bacon'ed out in my life right now) I used browned Jimmy Dean sausage. When I drained the potato water, I added chicken bouillon and used that as my broth. I halved the garlic (personal preference--I like to be able to kiss my husband) and added the optional butter. I didn't think it needed any added salt at, but i peppered the heck out of it-- again, personal preference. Simply divine. Thank you so much! I'm so thrilled with it!
