I am waiting for the first snowfall of the winter season. I eagerly sneak a peak out the window every morning hoping to wake up to find a winter wonderland, but I haven’t yet. I stumbled upon this recipe on Damn Delicious and you can find the recipe here. It is a really easy soup to make and it is super thick and delicious. It is not a healthy brothy soup. It is like eating a bowl of mashed potatoes with all the delicious toppings. This will be the perfect recipe for the first snowfall of the season for the fifth or sixth.
- 4 slices of bacon
- 5 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup flour
- 3 1/2 cup milk
- 3 large potatoes peeled and cubed
- 2 green onion
- 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- salt and pepper to taste
- Prepare bacon by cooking it in a pan until crispy. Pat dry with paper towel, dice and set aside.
- In a large pot melt the butter and then add the flour to begin making the roux for the soup. Slowly whisk in the milk making sure there are no lumps and thickened. Put potatoes in the pot and green onion. Bring to a boil and then lower the heat to and allow them to simmer until soft which should take 15-20 minutes depending on how large the pieces of potato are.
- Once the potato is soft add the cheese, sour cream, salt and pepper. At this point I mashed my soup to make sure there were no large lumps of potato. I used my hand blender to get a smooth consistency. At this point if soup is too thick add a bit of milk.
- Serve hot and garnish with the prepared bacon, cheddar cheese and green onion.
- I served in small bowls because this is a very filling soup.
- ENJOY 🙂
