Potato, Cheese, and Bacon Soup {Foodie Friday}

October 11, 2013

Basically my family is completely perfect. Things are never cray at our house in the mornings. We are never late for church and my 14 month old constantly rocks it at eating her breakfast while never whining. #ummyeahright

I’m all about making Sundays a little bit easier; especially when it comes to lunch. Since the weather was freaking perfect for soup last weekend I decided to pull out my trusty Potato Cheese Bacon (BACON!) Soup recipe!

Because, yes in fact, things are very crazy at our house on Sunday mornings, I decided to do most of my prep the night before so that I could just toss everything in the crock pot and go.

This soup is ah-mah-zing. It is so filling and just has more pep than your average potato soup. It also freezes very well and makes quite a bit so be ready to freeze some if you are only making it for two.

A few notes: I used cream of mushroom instead of celery because it’s all I could find in the healthier brands. To make things even easier cook your bacon and chop it beforehand too! I did not and this took more time than I thought. I also used homemade chicken broth (Found the recipe here) that I had frozen into ice cubes so I’m not sure how much I used!
