I couldn’t sleep one night and saw something on TV about potato soup. It looked so good and comforting. I remembered that years ago we had Loaded Baked Potato Soup at some restaurant, so I searched the internet for recipes and they were all so complicated so I threw this together in about 20 minutes!
One thing I don’t like is complicated recipes, I really don’t like to read cookbooks or measure so I am going to give you the approximate measures. This is really easy and so yummy! I think pictures speak a thousand words so here goes!
2-4 Large Potatoes ( I get really big ones so I use 2)
4 Slices Bacon
3-4 Green Onions
2-3 Cups Half & Half or Milk
1-2 Tbsp Butter
1-2 Tbsp Flour
3-4 Tbsp Sour Cream
Use Vegan Bacon, Dairy Free Cheese, Margarine or Coconut oil. Almond, Soy or Coconut Milk. Non-Dairy Sour Cream. Make it your own!
Scrub the potatoes, poke with a knife and Microwave until tender about 10 minutes. Remove and let cool until you can cut them in cubes. I leave the skin on.
While the potatoes are cooking, cut the bacon with scissors into small pieces. Cook to desired crispyness then drain on a paper towel.
Make a roux, this is to thicken the Half & Half or Milk. Melt 1-2 tablespoons of butter in a 3 quart sauce pan. Add 1-2 tablespoons of flour. Stir until smooth.
Add the Half & Half or Milk, stir until thickened. Add Butter, Salt & Pepper and the potatoes. The potatoes will also thicken the soup. Do not boil, just heat.
Put in a bowl, add Cheddar Cheese, Bacon, Green Onions and a dollop of Sour Cream!
ENJOY! Your Welcome! :-)
It’s easy and you really can’t make a mistake, ok unless you burn it. I whip this up for a quick go to meal and serve with hot bread! Let me know how yours came out.
