On 12/15/12 we also made Potato Soup and Brie =)
You can see some of my step by step directions *here*
Fry bacon-if there is a ton of grease you can drain some, but I leave some in for flavor.
Add potatoes, broth and seasoning- cook til potatoes are tender, 15 minutes.
Add milk and mash the potatoes up a bit
Potato Soup Recipe
Campbells Creamy Irish Potato Soup
2 Tablespoons of Butter I don't use this
4 medium green onions, sliced (about 1/2 cup) I don't use this
1 stalk celery, sliced (about 1/2 cup) I don't use this either
***I fry bacon in Olive Oil instead, then continue with the directions
1 3/4 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth we use boullion cubes
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 medium potatoes, sliced 1/4-inch thick (about 3 cups)
1 1/2 cups milk
***In reality, we use 5 chicken boullion cubes, to 4 cups of water and we ALWAYS use RED potatoes...it's a must or I won't make it. And we use a 5 lb bag lol.
1.Heat the butter in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and celery and cook until they're tender.
2.Stir the broth, black pepper and potatoes in the saucepan and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
3.Place half of the broth mixture and half of the milk in a blender or food processor. Cover and blend until smooth. Repeat with the remaining broth mixture and remaining milk. Return to the saucepan and heat through.
This is SO simple to make!! Only 3 ingredients necessary.
I had it for the first time last fall with Jamal and Christina at a restaurant we went to.
Then saw a Pilsbury Commercial. I have made this 3 times now but this is the 1st time I have managed to take pics of it...
