Right now we are going through a cold spell and my taste buds are screaming soup. Not just any soup keep in mind. Those taste buds wanted Potato Soup and I must say it was delicious. Below is the recipe I used. Keep in mind it normally cost between $25 and $30 dollars. I typically make a lot. I like making things that will last for 3 to 4 days.
In 12-inch skillet, cook bacon over medium heat 10 minutes or until crisp; drain on paper towels. Crumble bacon; set aside.
In 10 to 12-quart Dutch oven, put in chicken broth and potatoes. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cook 15 minutes or until potatoes are very tender.
Meanwhile, in same skillet, melt butter over low heat. Add 2 cans of Cheddar cheese sauce. Add 2 cups of milk and stir in flower. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with whisk, until mixture is thickened and bubbly. I generally add my seasonings in the cheese sauce.
Put in ham, bacon, sour cream, and Cheddar cheese sauce in the Dutch oven. Cook until thoroughly heated. The longer it cooks the better it taste.
If this sounds good I hope you are willing to give it a try. Even if you are not much of a cook, I do not believe this is a hard meal to make. If you have any questions about it please let me know.
