Bakin’ With Bacon and The King

Standard

Welcome to the castle where I – the King of Bacon – reside and give you yummy baconized recipes every Saturday!   Ready for another one????

 

What do I have for you today?   Well it’s a soup – and yes our soup season (winter) might be over but there are always evenings ANY season when you just want a nice grilled cheese sandwich (or something similar) and a bowl of homemade soup.    This fits the bill…………and it’s also VERY yummy.

Bacon, Potato, Cheddar Soup

 

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook the bacon in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat until crisp, stirring occasionally, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Pour out all but 2 tablespoons of the fat from the pot; reserve the pot.

Step 2

Add the onion and garlic to the reserved pot. Cook, stirring frequently, until softened, 6 to 8 minutes.

Step 3

Add the potatoes, bouillon, milk (or half and half), 1 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoons butter and ¼ teaspoon pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, add frozen corn, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are very soft (almost falling apart) and the soup is slightly thickened, 30 to 40 minutes.

Step 4

Serve warm topped with the Cheddar, chives, and reserved bacon.

 

So what do you think of this one?   It’s got it all right?    Those of you who can’t have bacon probably have figured out that with this list of goodies, the bacon COULD be left out and it would still be “finger-lickin'” good!     Bacon does add a lot but hey……we can’t always have everything right?

I’m holding my breath until you give us a sample!

Yep – I’ll be happy to rescue you with a little taste – step right up!     Everybody else – put these ingredients on your shopping list……………………..this is GOOOOOOOOOOOOD!

Happy Saturday!

See you next Saturday!   King Teddy

  1. Wonder what the shops will have to offer us, if we went on a hunt for the ingredients…the other day there was not a potato in sight. Not much bacon either. Seems the lack of ability to go to restaurants has everyone stocking up on things to cook!

    Sounds yummy! Not sure if there is a keto or paleo version of something like that1

  2. I make a lot of soup and this sounds very tasty. I would have to substitute chopped chicken for the bacon. We are having roast chicken tomorrow so I will keep some back for the soup.

  4. That looks delicious. I bought bacon yesterday but it is reserved for BLTs this morning. That is what my wife gets for breakfast when we go out but since all eat in restaurants have been closed in Florida as of yesterday, I decided to make her breakfast.

  5. Sounds delicious! Purrhaps I shall have my staff make it, tomorrow… Today they are busy purrocessing about 10 gallons of loquats for the freezer. Of course, I am snoopervising to make sure no pits make it in… Lots of things can be done with the frozen halves, but this afternoon, when the first are frozen, I plan to have the staff run 3.5 to 4 cups through the food processor with some sugar and lemon juice, then put it in the ice cream maker to make sorbet.

  6. Teddy, this really does sound super duper yummy! Mom thinks she would leave out the corn. Might add a little paprika. Guess this could be adapted in many different ways. Thanks, Bacon King.

    • Yes in fact the corn addition was a suggestion of someone else who added it and found it to be a wonderful “touch of sweet”. BUT as always, recipes are guidelines and can be adjusted to taste. I’m sure paprika would be fab as would any number of other additions. GO FOR IT! It’s just a nice hearty comfort soup.

      Hugs, Pam
