This is the perfect soup for a blizzard - warm and creamy, with lots of potato and bacon pieces. Because of the way the potatoes are cooked you end up with pieces that are fried, caramelized, and steamed, so a soup that could be boring is full of textures and rich flavor. The leftovers are even better than the first day so the recipe makes a lot.

Step 1: Ingredients


- 1 pound bacon
- 1-2 medium onions
- potatoes - 6 cups peeled and diced will take about 7 medium potatoes, but if you end up under or over the soup will still be delicious
- 4 cups milk - ideally not skim
- salt
- pepper
- garlic powder


- the biggest soup pot you have with a lid
- knife and cutting board
- basic measuring gear
Pardon me while I drool on this page! Yum!
I know this is good!
Want want want! I used to make a soup like this, but with copious amounts of cheese. It's so good. :D
looks yummy
