Loaded Potato Soup via lifeingrace

Do you have any idea how happy I am that soup season is officially here?  SO HAPPY.  As in, I can hardly stand myself with excitement over which soup to make next.  Not that a small thing like weather could keep me from making the best ever beef stew at the drop of a hat.  If my family would let me, I’d make soup everyday with some kind of delicious bread or muffin side kick.   I ALWAYS make a soup for the weekend and last week, it was spicy tomato with paninis (for lunch on Saturday) (BEST LUNCH EVER!) only two days apart from this loaded potato soup.  Nobody complained or noticed because it was SO GOOD.

We made this potato number last week and served it with a big salad and crusty bread.  OH THE DELICIOUSNESS! I hear it’s gonna be chilly this weekend so whip up a batch of this and enjoy the first chill of fall!  I have to say that I’ve recently fallen back in love with ground black pepper (as opposed to coarse freshly ground) and it’s the star of this little show here.  Try it out and let me know what you think.

What you’ll need:

  • 4 pieces of bacon
  • cayenne pepper
  • 3 T butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 5 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • can add a little milk if it gets thicker than you like at the end
  • 3/4 cups heavy cream
  • salt and ground black pepper
  • shredded cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup added to soup, the rest for garnish
  • scallions for garnish
  • sour cream for garnish

What you’ll do:

  • Cook the bacon in a large dutch oven until the fat is rendered and then remove and save for garnish
  • Add butter and sauté onion in butter until translucent
  • Add salt, pepper and a pinch of two of cayenne (use ground black pepper and plenty of it for a great taste and kick!)
  • Add potatoes and stock and cook on medium heat with the lid on until the potatoes are tender
  • With a potato masher or an immersion blender, blend a LITTLE until it’s the desired consistency for you.  (I don’t blend much because I do like it chunky but it helps to thicken it to blend it a little)
  • Finish with the heavy cream and then serve with cheese, bacon, scallions, and sour cream
