Baked Potato Soup

Jessie's photo

I chuckled when I saw this soup on Jessie's menu for us, knowing I had put a similar potato soup on her menu!  After trying both in a matter of two weeks, I don't think I could choose a favorite.  Both are equally creamy, filling, simple, and delicious!

3 bacon strips, diced 
1 small onion, chopped 
1 clove garlic, minced 
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 
1 teaspoon salt 
1 teaspoon dried basil 
1/2 teaspoon pepper 
3 cups chicken broth 
2 large (already) BAKED potatoes, peeled and cubed 
1 cup half-and-half cream 
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce 
Shredded Cheddar cheese 
Minced fresh parsley

In a large saucepan, cook bacon until crisp. Drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. Set bacon aside. Saute onion and garlic in the drippings until tender. Stir in flour, salt, basil and pepper; mix 
well. Gradually add broth. Bring to boil; boil and stir for 2 minutes. 
Add the potatoes, cream and hot pepper sauce; heat through but do not boil. 
Garnish with bacon, cheese and parsley.
