Creamy Bacon Potato Soup recipe

This creamy and hearty soup had the best combination of flavors ever, bacon and potato! Try this soup topped with a little bit of chopped onion, shredded cheese, or crisp bacon. Serves 8.


  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 6 slices of bacon, chopped small
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 quarts chicken stock
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In a large saucepot over high heat cook the bacon until very crispy.

  2. Add the onion. Cook until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.

  3. Add the potatoes and garlic, cook until the potatoes begin to be crisp and the garlic is fragrant, about 8 minutes.

  4. Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Turn down to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are soft, about 20 minutes.

  5. Pour the soup into a blender and puree well until no lumps remain.

  6. Pour the soup back into the pot and add the cream. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
