Mmmm.... soup.....

Lunch today is worth bragging about!
I'm not the best chef in the world.
That's no secret.
So when I make something that's Mmm Mmm Good, I gotta share it!

On The Menu:
Cheesy Loaded Baked Potato Soup

I made this one other time and it didn't turn out nearly as well.
Thought I'd share this simple recipe with you all.
I put a couple recipies together, modified them, and made it my own.
I encourage you to experiment.

3 Cans diced potatoes
1 1/2 cups water
1 can chicken broth
2 Tablespoons salt (give or take)
2 1/2 cups milk
4 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
3 tablespoons flour
Dash of steak seasoning
Dash of black pepper
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or whatever you like)
1 pack of bacon, fried and chopped
Sour cream

1.) In large pot combone potatoes, water, chicken broth, and salt. Bring to a boil. Continue boiling for a few minutes, stirring often.
2.) Reduce heat, cover, and let simmer 15-20 minutes.
3.) Once potatoes are tender, stir in milk.
4.) In a small bowl, combine melted butter, flour, steak seasoning, and pepper. Then stir into soup.
5.) Divide the bacon - saving enough to top soup when serving. Add remainder to soup.
6.) Increase heat to medium.
7.) Cook until thick and bubbly - stirring frequently.
8.) Remove from heat.
9.) Divide cheese so that you have enough left to top soup when serving. Stir in rest of cheese until melted.
10.) Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
I served mine in bowls topped with shredded cheese, bacon, and a dallop of sour cream.

I LOVE soup!! That sounds great.
I bet it would be great in a bread bowl.

I love it when bloggers share recipes.

Oooo that sounds so good on a winter's night. I love potato soups, but I have never doctored one up quite like this. I may definitely have to try this one out.
