I made a pot of potato soup a few days ago but my son didn't like it with the celery so I omit it this time around. Next time I think I am gonna add some shrimp or maybe kernel corn ;)
1 pound bacon
1 medium onion--chopped
4 cloves garlic--minced
2 tablespoon all purpose flour
8 russet potato--peeled and CUBED into little pieces
5 cups water
2 tablespoon chicken powder
3 cups HEAVY CREAM
shredded cheddar cheese
dice up bacon
In a sauce pan...cook up the bacon....once its cook...spoon it into a paper towel and KEEP the fat...saute your onion and garlic in the bacon fat... until they are translucent. Next add the 2 T all purpose flour--and stir to combine. Cook for about 2 minutes and slowly add the 5 cups of water and the 2 T of chicken powder ....then add in your potato. Cover the lid and cook for about 20 minutes on medium--remember to stir occasionally. Uncover and take a fork and smooch some potato to the side of the pot...making the soup nice and creamy. Next add in the 3 cup of heavy cream..continue to stir for about 5 minutes and turn off the stove.
Add more pepper and salt to taste...the bacon fat and the chicken powder/chicken broth is already salty so I didn't add ANY SALT at all.
If you are planning on reheating some...just add a little water or chicken broth and reheat..
Garnish with sliced green onion, shredded cheddar cheese and bacon bits..
