POTATO & Bacon Soup
1 med. onion, chopped 1/2 c. chopped celery 2 tbsp. butter 2 med. sized red or white potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes (I used 4 reg. size potatoes and cubed them) 2 tbsp. chopped parsley – did not use 1 can chicken broth 2 c. milk 1/3 lb. bacon, fried and crumbled 1-1/2 tbsp. cornstarch, mixed with 3 tbsp. water – did not use (I used potato buds to thicken.) Salt and pepper to taste
In a 3 quart pan over medium heat, cook onion and celery in the butter until onion is soft, then add potatoes, the parsley and broth. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat. Simmer until potatoes are tender. Stir in milk and cook, cover until soup bubbles and thickens slightly. I added the bacon before serving. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve hot and garnish with parsley and butter.
