Potatoes are foods many generations have grown up on. Van Gogh painted his first masterpiece “The Potato Eaters” in 1885. In this painting, he presented the family of peasants, sitting down and eating their hard-earned meal after a long day out somewhere in the field. The picture is symbolic and the painter here glorifies work and food that man honestly earned. Their faces and their hands were the color of beautiful, dusty potatoes.

I love soup and lately I prefer them. When the time comes to eat comfort food, it feels good to make potato soup, but not just any potato soup. A Creamy Potato soup. For those who like bacon and cheese!  And luckily my darling thinks the same so he doesn’t complain.

The taste is phenomenal, potato gives the necessary density, and I would say that the secret ingredient, which raises the taste and quality, is the bacon – “to smell good” and gain the “intensity”.

  • 6 slices bacon (about 6 oz.), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons bacon grease or butter
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups milk, warmed
  • 1.5 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • salt and pepper
