1. Loaded potato soup
This soup is so hearty and filling that a single bowl will keep you satisfied for hours. The ingredients include crumbled bacon, diced carrots, diced celery, finely chopped green onions, sliced sweet onion, peeled and cubed russet potatoes, flour, salt, pepper, butter, cheddar cheese, cream cheese, milk, and chicken stock. To make it, cook the bacon in a pot until it’s crispy. Remove, drain on paper towels, and set aside.
In the same pot, add the carrots and celery into the bacon grease and cook until they are slightly softened. Remove from the pot. Add butter and garlic to the pot and cook until butter melts. Whisk in flour and chicken stock. Add the cream cheese, milk, and diced potatoes. Bring to a low simmer and cook until the potatoes are tender. Crumble the bacon and sprinkle it and cheddar cheese on top of the soup.
