Loaded Potato Soup

I have had a love for Potato Soup that goes way back.  When I was a kid, my family would go camping every year and one of the things the adults would always make would be huge pots of Potato Soup.  From those early years of eating Potato Soup, my love continued to grow, so I started experimenting with recipes and have come up with my favorite.  Recipe is as follows:

Ingredients:

Chicken Broth

Garlic

Sour Cream

Half & Half or Milk

Salt & Pepper

Lots of Potatoes

1/2 lb bacon

Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Peel 6-8 large Potatoes and chop so pieces are at a small size that you can handle.  Fill your stock pot with 1 large can of Chicken Broth. Add your Potatoes to boiling Chicken Broth.  Boil them until very soft.  Then add a couple of cups of Half & Half or Milk, a half a cup of Sour Cream or Chobani Plain Greek Yogurt, and Garlic to the mixture.  Then I use a hand blender to puree the entire mixture.  It will have a thicker “Soup Like” texture to it at this point.  In a side pot boil another 3-4 Potatoes in the size you like.  Once softened add, these Potatoes to the mixture as these Potatoes will be the chunky part of the soup.  Also cook a few strips of Bacon either in a skillet or in the microwave.  Add 2 Tablespoons of the Bacon Grease to the Soup (I can promise you that this adds a TON of flavor to the soup).  Let soup simmer for a few minutes and cook to your desired thickness and temperature.  Add Salt and Pepper to taste and Serve with Cheddar Cheese and Bacon Crumbles on Top.  This is the perfect Soup for a cold Fall or Winter Day.  Enjoy
