Potato Soup


Due to the nature of yesterday's post I have decided that today I will post a recipe. Joe Braden's favorite meal is meat loaf, mashed potatoes, and salad. His second favorite meal is Potato soup and since I am making that for dinner tomorrow night, I thought I would share the recipe! The picture above is NOT my picture it is a random one I googled!

1 package of bacon thin sliced (I usually just buy the cheap stuff, since it is just for flavor really)
5 lbs. of potatoes
1 16 oz. can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 16 oz. can Cream of Mushroom soup
1 8 oz. tub of sour cream
2 cups of milk
1 lg. onion
3 stalks of celery
2 tbsp. of butter
water
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
1 1/2 tsp. minced garlic

Cook your bacon until crisp, and drain well. Sautee your onions and celery in the butter, you can also sautee them in the bacon grease if you would rather. While you are doing step one and two boil your diced potatoes (skins can be left on or you can peel if you prefer). Drain the potatoes well and add the bacon, onion and celery. Add your milk, soups, garlic, sour cream, and water (enough to cover potatoes well about 4-5 cups). Add in your salt and pepper and simmer for at least 30 min. Of course the soup is better the longer the flavors have to mix!

We always have a ton of left overs, we keep half out to eat and 1/2 we freeze. It freezes wonderfully and is great for a quick warm meal!
