How To Make Best Homemade Potato Soup
Add the bacon to a soup pot and cook until the fat is crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside. Pour off most of the bacon fat, but do not clean the pan. Return the pan to medium heat and add in the onion, celery and carrot
Stir and cook for two minutes, then add in the diced potatoes, salt and pepper and any other seasonings you like
Pour in the broth and bring to a low boil
Cook for 10 minutes or until the potatoes start to soften
Whisk the flour and the milk, add to the pot and stir continuously
Cook for another 5 minutes
Carefully scoop out ¼ to ½ of the soup and process it in a blender or food processor until it is smooth
Add this back into the pot slowly and carefully so it does not splash back on you and burn
Stir in the crumbled bacon, leaving some for a garnish
Serve in bowls with parsley, bacon and a little cheese for a garnish.
