Ingredients
  • Creamy Potato Soup with Bacon
  • 1 small onion chopped fine
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 6 potatoes cubed
  • 3 cubes chicken bouillon or one carton of chicken stock
  • 2 cups water if you are using bullion cubes
  • 1 (8oz) package of cream cheese
  • ⅓ cup flour
  • ½ pound bacon fried crisp and crumbed or real bacon bits
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 can Campbell's Cream of Potato Soup
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • * my personal favorite is to add basil for extra flavor
Instructions
  1. ~ Cook bacon till crispy and set aside. I cook in the oven on broil.
  2. ~Saute chopped onions in butter until tender.
  3. ~In large pot, put water, bouillon cubes or chicken stock in replacement of water, along with cubed potatoes and onion. * This is where I cheat. I don't peel my potatoes. Instead I scrub then and dice the way they are for a more hearty flavor. I also use red or Yukon potatoes instead of russets. It really depends on what is in the house at the time.
  4. ~ Cover and cook until potatoes are tender but not mushy
  5. ~ Blend softened cream cheese with flour until smooth.
  6. ~ Stir into potato mixture
  7. ~ Add milk bacon and can of potato soup. Bring to a boil for 1 minute.
  8. ~ Season with salt and pepper to taste. This is where I add a Tbsp of dried basil. I prefer fresh when it's growing in the garden.
  9. This is a great soup base for clam chowder. Just omit can of soup and add 1 can of clams with juice.
  10. The best part is that kids can make this.

~ Always and no mater what, make your kids make the soup so they can cook on their own once out of the house 😉

A lot of people ask me how my kids know how to cook, so I  will tell you the best trick. Leave home and call the kids from town  (This is when mom goes shopping or to the spa). Then you tell one kid to make Creamy Potato Soup with Bacon. There may be much complaining as kids usually do, but just ignore this. They may call you back for guidance and the first time, I will help walk them through the process on the phone. After that. I know longer answer the phone so they get used to doing things on their own. Once you get home, have one kid clean up the kitchen and WaaLa! Dinner is made. Now you can sit down to relax and eat your Creamy Potato Soup with Bacon
