  • Ingredients:
  • 5-6 large potatoes, peeled and cut into bite size pieces
  • 1/2-1 lb bacon
  • 1/4-1/2 cup flour
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup frozen kernel corn or 1 can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup butter (optional)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Instructions:
  • 1. Prepare bacon bits as noted below.
  • 2. Meanwhile, boil potatoes in a large dutch oven in water; do not add salt! Drain
  • 3. Pour reserved bacon grease into empty dutch oven; saute onion and garlic in reserved bacon grease until onion is lightly browned.
  • 4. Add flour to the sauted onion mixture, stirring to evenly brown; add cream and stir constantly until mixture thickens; add chicken broth and stir until bubbly.
  • 5. Stir potatoes, corn and bacon bits into the soup; add butter, salt and pepper to taste. (you may not need salt. Bacon is very salty) Simmer until butter is melted and stirred into soup.
  • 6. Add milk at little at a time if soup is too thick for your tastes.
  • Bacon bit tip: Partially freeze your package of bacon. Use a sharp knife and cut the frozen bacon into long strips about 1/4 inch wide. Turn the bacon and cut the strips into pieces also about 1/4 in wide. You now have perfect raw bacon pieces to fast fry. No need to separate. They will separate during cooking. Perfect bacon bits.
  • Serves 6 to 8
