Friday Fun.... in the Kitchen...Bacon and Cheddar Potato Soup

Its Friday... and amidst all the fun with Em Wood's hotties, and watching the birds (lovely red cardinals) outside my windows, I'm preparing a most delicious potato soup for dinner tonight.  I've completely lost all motivation for sticking to any schedule, so thank goodness Em, The Goddess of the Prompt, will be reminding me to post my story on Mondays and to actually write the thing on Saturdays,   because I'd hate to miss out on any orgies...

So, here's what's scenting my kitchen right now...

Bacon and Cheddar Cheese Potato Soup


  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups peeled and cubed red potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup diced, cooked bacon


  1. In crock pot, add onion, potatoes, salt and pepper, and chicken stock.  Cook four hours on high or eight hours on low. 
  2. Puree cooked potatoes with broth in blender.  Return to crock.  Stir in milk,  sugar, cheese, and bacon. Return to heat, on high, stirring frequently, until cheese melts and everything is adequately combined.
  3. If you want a thick soup, add a tablespoon of Wondra, stirring it in thoroughly. 
Garnish with a bit of crumbled bacon, a dab of sour cream, some diced chives, a sprinkle of cheddar, or even a few chopped tomatoes... maybe even broccoli.


  1. Oh, my aching yum yum. I am sooooo making that soup goodness! *scribbles down recipe* Thanks for sharing! =D

  2. Only one cup of bacon??? Fine . . . one cup . . . but I don't have to like it . . . *winksI
