Loaded Potato Soup
Creamy, cheesy, loaded potato soup
(half and half works too)
, peeled and FINELY diced
(I used white cheddar)
salt and pepper to taste
Cajun seasoning to taste
, sourcream, chives for garnish
Cook bacon and drain off most of the grease, crumble and set aside.
In a large pot, melt butter. Whisk in flour and cook for about 1-2 minutes until golden.
Slowly add in chicken broth, whisking constantly to remove any lumps.
Add in milk and cream and cook, stirring constantly until slightly thickened.
Add in potatoes, onions and seasonings. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat and simmer covered until potatoes are cooked through (about 10 minutes)
Remove from heat. Stir in sour cream cream, cheese and bacon, reserving some for garnish.
Top with extra cheese, sour cream, chives and bacon.
If soup gets too thick, thin with extra chicken broth
If you like a smooth soup, before adding in the sour cream and cheese, add small amounts of soup to an immersion blender.
