Bacon Potato Soup

  • Serves: 6
Bacon Potato Soup


  • 4 cups cubed Blue Denim White Potatoes
  • 6 thick bacon slices
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Cook bacon until crisp in three-quart saucepan; remove and drain well on paper towels. Discard bacon grease and wipe pan thoroughly with paper towel. Add olive oil to saucepan and add onion, carrot, and celery. Saute until onion is soft but not brown (about 3-4 minutes). Stir in chicken broth, potatoes, and pepper; bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, covered, until potatoes are tender (about 10-15 minutes). Stir in cheese, heating until melted; do not boil. Chop bacon and add to soup. Adjust seasoning to taste by adding salt, if desired. Serve at once.
