My baked Potato Soup

OMG is this stuff good. I have served it to numerous friends, relatives and strangers and everyone loves it. I hope you do too.

1 lb bacon

6-8 baking potatoes (peeled and diced)

1c diced onions

1/2c green onions

2c chicken stock

2 large cartons heavy cream

3/4c sour cream

1 stick butter

2c shredded cheese (you can use what you like but I use colby)

Salt and pepper to taste


Brown bacon and remove from pan and allow to cool. Try to resist eating bacon. Add white onions and dices potatoes to bacon grease. Cook till potatoes are softened. Now, make sure you are using a stock pot at this point…..or you can use your crock pot from here on. Add chicken stock, cream and about 1/2c of the sour cream. Just eyeball it….it doesn’t have to be perfect. Simmer till about 20 min before dinner. If using a crock pot place it on low and resist opening lid every few minutes to smell. About 20 min or so before dinner add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. I love this with a hunk of french bread. Try to make this only a few times a year as I will not be held responsible for your cholesterol….lol.

Let me know how it turns out.
