Equipment

  • Large Stockpot
  • potato masher
  • Ladle
  • Liquid Measuring Cup

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bacon roughly chopped
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 1 large carrot peeled and diced
  • ¾ cup diced celery
  • 4 large russet potatoes diced
  • 4 medium red potatoes diced
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 2 cups chicken stock (broth works fine too)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 can corn drained (optional, I just added it because it sounded good!)
  • Optional garnishes chopped chives, bacon bits, sour cream, shredded cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese

Instructions

  • In a 6- to 8-quart stockpot over medium heat, fry bacon until crisp.
  • Remove bacon and drain on paper towels, reserving half for garnish. In bacon fat, cook onions, carrots, and celery until the onions are translucent. Add potatoes and cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Whisk in flour and stir constantly over low heat until the flour is cooked and the mixture has thickened slightly, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add chicken stock and half of the bacon. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Over medium-high heat, bring the soup to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes or until the potatoes are soft. Mash some of the potatoes for thicker, creamier texture. Add whipping cream (and can of corn if you want it) and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Adjust thickness by adding water or stock. Soup should have a creamy consistency.
  • Season to taste, and garnish with toppings.
