Recipe:  Creamy Potato Soup with BACON

Courtesy of All You Magazine

The days  nights are getting cooler and what is a great way to warm up and pig out  dine in for little cost (only 1.44 per person!)?  Creamy potato soup with BACON! It can be made quickly and the cost is minimal for how great the taste is.  A win-win situation.  So let's get to it! 


6 slices bacon (about 6 oz.), cut into 1-inch pieces
1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
3 baking potatoes (about 2 lb. total), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
3 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup sour cream
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons minced fresh chives (optional)


1. In a large pot over medium-high heat, cook bacon, stirring occasionally, until crisp and browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. When cool enough to handle, crumble.

2. Discard all but 2 Tbsp. fat and return pot to medium heat. Add onion, garlic and thyme and sauté until onion is soft, about 7 minutes. Add potatoes and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer until potatoes are tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Working in batches, process in blender with sour cream until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Ladle soup into bowls and top with chives and bacon.
