A baked potato with all the trimmings thrown together in a big pot!

"I really liked the idea of this recipe. I don't think you have to put everything together in the same order. My fiance isn't much of a cook but she cooked me some of this soup. In the directions it doesn't say to remove the fat from the bacon or to cook the bacon all the way through for crispiness. The soup she made had bacon that was chopped up with all the fat on it still. Other than the directions not being well the idea of this soup is really good. "


1 quart Heavy Cream
1 quart Chicken Broth
10 pieces Bacon
4 Russet Potatoes; peeled and diced, set in water to prevent them from browning
4 Russet Potatoes; baked; peeled and diced
1/3 cup Chives or Green Onion
1 cups Cheddar Cheese; Finely Shredded
2 tbsp Butter
1 tsp Garlic; minced
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper
Sour Cream; for garnish

Slice the bacon strips in half length-wise and dice into bite size portions. Place the bacon, butter, salt and garlic in a soup pot on low heat. And let the bacon lightly fry for 5-7 minutes.

Add 1/2 qt heavy cream and 1 qt chicken broth. Increase the heat to medium and once it starts to simmer add in the UNBAKED peeled and diced potatoes.

Simmer for about 25 minutes on medium heat until reduced by half.

Add the chives, BAKED peeled and diced potatoes, and remaining 1/2 qt of heavy cream.

Simmer for an additional 20 minutes.

Remove from heat and slowly add the shredded cheddar while stirring constantly.

Made this recipe with some nice home-made bread bowls with a salad on the side. Wonderful soup!

I have made this several times over the last year. Sometimes I use ham instead of bacon. And recently I have used my mixer to cream the potato soup after adding the 2nd round of potatoes. I much prefer it creamy. It's still very hearty and delicious!!

I made this and it was amazing.I only used 6 strips of thick baccon because that's what I had in the fridge and it was still great. I will make it again for sure.

Tasted amazing but a bit rich for me. Don't think my fella was too keen on it. I'd love to make it again but seems a lot for one person
