.Rhonda's Loaded Potato Bacon Soup.

For my dicing I use the "Chopper" Can be found at Walmart, Target, or Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

Sidenote: My Mr. Vidalia Onion Chopper cracked so I saved the plates & lid... I was going to order another bottom online & never got around to doing so. I needed my chopper back today so I checked Walmart & found this one.....It's the SAME thing just a different name!! It was only $15.00 instead of the $20.00 w00t w00t!!!

Boil 6-9 Idaho diced potatoes in large can of chicken broth Once the potatoes are nearly cooked

Add:

1 med size yellow/white onion diced

3-4 carrots diced

1 rib of celery diced

1 bulb of garlic peeled/diced

I remove from heat and add the following ingredients

Add:

1 1/2-2 c sour cream

8oz brick of cream cheese

1 1/2 stick butter

1 lb Bacon crumbled or a couple bags/jars from the salad topping section

1 c whipping cream (I tasted mine tonight without this & it tasted just as good.... you really could omit if you wanted to save calories)

4-6 green onions sliced

Stir in shredded cheddar (I just eyeball this depending on my mood)

Once done you can eat right away OR you can let it rest & warm it back up later! (we do both but we enjoy the flavor after it sits)

Ladle into serving bowls & top with cheese, green onions, and bacon!

The above recipe was formed off of a recipe I was given by a friend. For those who follow me on FB you've probably already seen the comments but for those who do not I will say my friend Jamie commented on my photo "EWWW WHAT DID YOU DO TO IT!!! YOU RUINED IT!" LOL :) My friend Jamie apparently always makes the following recipe for parties (31, Scentsy, etc) & everyone RANTS & RAVES about the soup.... I have never tried her soup so one day I had asked for her recipe.... Just reading the recipe it seemed "plain" in my honest opinion.... BUT Here is her "precious" recipe LOL *(apparently I ruined her recipe) *

The ORIGINAL recipe:

6-8 potatoes cubed

4 c chicken broth after potatoes are cooked add

1 1/2 c sour cream

8oz cream cheese

1 stick butter

bacon I get the jars in the salad isle or bags usually use 2

1 c whipping cream

chives

simmer

add cheese to top of each bowl and serve

*BUT *we all know soup is one of those recipes you can change as you prepare! && I LOVE my recipe! :) It's some of the rest dang soup around.


ENJOY! **
