The Once a Year Potato Soup
Roughly three pounds of chopped potatoes (I usually use the better part of a bag.), cooked until soft in heavily salted water, along with black pepper
1 package of bacon, cooked and crumbled
4 green onions, chopped, in their entirety
1 1/2 packs shredded colby/monterary jack cheese blend
3 cans cream of potato soup
1 quart of half and half (a sad attempt to 'lighten' this up)
1 pint of heavy cream
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
Up to 1 tsp. Tabasco, to taste
1/2-1 tsp white pepper
Roughly 3/4 tsp garlic powder
1 - 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 Tablespoon dried parsley
Cook bacon and potatoes and set aside. I like to cut my bacon in half before cooking it.
Heat the soup and creams, whisking until smooth. Stir in spices, salt and Tabasco. Melt butter and combine with flour. Whisk the flour mixture into the cream base and continue to heat while the soup thickens. Add cheese to melt. Stir in bacon, potatoes, onions, and parsley. Simmer until heated through. Serve with additional cheese, sour cream, bacon, and chives, as your BeachBoy desires. Or, eat it plain and claim to be eating light.
This makes a great dipping soup, if you are looking to add some bread to your meal for extra carbs. I know those are popular these days. Lucky for you carb-cravers, this recipe makes a large batch.
