  • Of Food And Love: Cheesy Potato Soup

    This is for Sis. Kari:

    Cheesy Potato Soup (4-6 main dish servings)

    4 medium potatoes (peels optional), cubed (enough to make a little over 2 cups worth)

    2 cups water

    1/4 cup onion, chopped

    1.5 tsp salt

    1/4 tsp pepper

    1/4 cup butter

    1/4 cup all-purpose flour

    2 cups milk

    2 cups (8oz) shredded chedder cheese

    1 pound bacon, cooked & crumbled

    1/2 cup sour cream (optional)

    3 green onions, diced (optional)


    In a large sauce pan, combine the first 5 ingredients — bring to a boil

    1. Reduce heat; cover & simmer until potatoes are tender (about 17 minutes)
    2. Reduce heat to low & leave alone until step 8
    3. In another sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat; whisk in the flour until smooth
    4. Gradually add milk; bring to a boil
    5. Cook & stir for 2 minutes, or until thickened
    6. Add cheese to milk mixture & stir until melted
    7. Add mixture to the potato pot & stir to combine
    8. Add crumbled bacon & stir to combine
    9. Serve with sour cream & green onions as garnish

    This is SUCH a phenomenal recipe. You can find almost all of these ingredients in your pantry at all times. Make this and enjoy it as the weather cools and please write a review on how you all munched it down with zeal!!

    I love the new picture you put up! Look at the smile on Cy’s face!
    Love you

    P.S. the recipe sounds great!

    YUM!!! THANK YOU!!! You inspire me exponentially…
    I pulled a “Misha stunt” last night and made homemade pesto to freeze for the winter with basil from my garden…yep, check it out. I didn’t post any pics because I was too busy flinging pesto all over my kitchen to get the camera out but I will do it again and post some. Cheers!
