You will need:
- 6 medium red potatoes (or enough to equal 32 ounces), peeled and diced
- 32 ounces of chicken broth
- 1 cup of 1% milk
- 1 cup water
- 3 Tbsp flour
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup of real bacon bits
- 1/4 cup of green onions (chives)
- 1/2 cup diced onions (optional)
- Pepper – to taste
- In a 3-4 quart pot and add in the potatoes, water,
broth, garlic powder and your onions if you decided to use them. (Potato soup is
just one meal that I don’t like to add diced onions!)
- Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are done and can be poked with a
fork so around 20 minutes. You don’t want to over cook them because you will
want some potato chunks but cooked enough to mash them up a bit.
- While potatoes are cooking, mix flour and milk into a small bowl and whisk
until it is all mixed together.
- Once the potatoes are done, stir in the milk and flour mixture and turn the
heat on high. Mash up a few of the potatoes but leave some still together.
- Cover and cook for about 20 minutes or until mixture thickens.
- Add the cheddar cheese and stir until cheese is melted.
- Serve in a gigantic bowl and top it off with bacon bits, green onions, and pepper.
