Bacon and Potato Soup is one of the Stay at Home Mum fans’ favourite winter warmer soup!

It is thick and hearty, fit to warm your belly on a cold night.  Aside from having two of our favourite things (bacon and potatoes), bacon and potato soup freezes really well.

When you make bacon and potato soup, we suggest you make a huge batch so you always have some on hand!

  1. Cook bacon in a large saucepan over medium-high heat for 5 mins until crispy.

  2. Remove to plate lined with paper towels. Add oil and leek to saucepan (and garlic if you are using it).

  3. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until soft. Add potatoes and toss them around in the leek and oil to coat.

  4. Add the chicken stock to the saucepan. Cover and bring to the boil. Then turn heat down to low and simmer, partially covered, for approx 20 mins or until potatoes are tender.

  5. Blend to desired consistency then return to saucepan. Add cream and ¾ of the amount of cooked bacon.

  6. Stir over low heat until soup is heated through. Season with salt & pepper.  Sprinkle with remaining bacon and chopped chives.

  7. Serve with crusty fresh bread or garlic bread.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Bacon and Potato Soup is suitable to freeze, allow to cool to room temperature then seal in ziplock bags for up to three months. Otherwise keep refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
