Baked Potato Soup

This is soup was soooo yummy and very inexpensive to make. I love to make huge pots of soup so we can enjoy some for dinner and put the rest in the freezer but this soup was so good none of it made it to the freezer. Of course Little Foodie was in love with the soup because it has BACON in it! I adapted this recipe from one found on allrecipes.com. Enjoy!

  • 6 bacon strips, diced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 4 large baked potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 cup milk
  • Shredded Cheddar cheese
  • Sour Cream

In a large saucepan, cook bacon until crisp. Drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. Set bacon aside. Saute onion and garlic in the drippings until tender. Stir in flour, salt, basil and pepper; mix well. Gradually add broth. Bring to boil; boil and stir for 2 minutes. Add the potatoes, milk and some of the bacon; heat through but do not boil. Garnish with the remaining bacon, cheese and sour cream
