Creamy Potato Soup

I feel like a real chef because I made this soup up. Well, sort of. I looked at a few different potato soup recipes and then came up with this. And guess what! It's really good! 


8 strips of bacon
2 cups chopped onion
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup flour
1 cup chicken broth
3-4 potatoes, peeled and diced
2 1/2 cups milk or cream
1 cup corn
shredded cheddar cheese (1/2-3/4 cup)
salt (1/2 tsp) & pepper (to taste)
hot sauce (to taste)

Cut strips of bacon into bite sized pieces and cook for a couple of minutes (don’t make them crispy) then add chopped onion. Cook together until onion is soft and translucent. Add minced garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add butter and flour. Stir together then pour in chicken broth. Stir continuously until things have thickened slightly. Add milk/cream and potatoes and bring to SIMMER (don’t boil!). Simmer for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Add corn and shredded cheese. Stir until cheese is melted and corn is warm. Add salt, pepper and hot sauce. Enjoy. 

Serves 6-8
