The Best Ever Potato Cheese Soup

Standard

This is a soup my Sister LaRae got from a pot luck at work it was like 32 yrs ago. It is so delicious I had to share it with you. My family loves it so I make it every winter.

POTATO CHEESE SOUP

1 lb of bacon ( I use the thick bacon so I fry about 8 slices ) save the bacon grease!

3 to 4 tomatoes

1 bunch of green onions

5 lbs of potatoes or as much as you like. I like lots of potatoes so I make a big pot that covers 2 burners and do 10 lbs.

8 to 16 cups of Chicken broth

1 can of green chilies. Lg or small  what ever you like or as many as you like.

1 can of milk

and a bunch of cheese ( we like Monetary jack or Mozzarella cheese )

Fresh French bread and butter

 

CS18

This is the thick bacon I buy. So first you fry the bacon then set it aside.

 

CS17

While the bacon is frying I’m cutting up the tomatoes

 

CS16

and green onions to put in the bacon grease.

 

CS15

Then you let it cook for about 20 min.

 

CS19

While I’m frying the tomatoes and green onions in the bacon grease I’m peeling the potatoes and cutting them like this.

 

CS20

Now I put like 8 cups of water then I put 4 tbs of the chicken broth powder and whisk away. You can put it to your liking you can also use canned broth what ever you like.

 

CS14

So I have the potatoes cooking til tinder.

 

CS7

Chop the bacon

 

CS6

grate the cheese

 

CS8

Here I have the green chilies and the can of milk waiting to be put in the soup.

After the tomatoes and green chilies are done add them to the boiling potatoes and Chicken broth.

Then add the green chilies and bacon to the soup.

When the potatoes are tender and ready to eat add the milk and some cheese.

Have a bowl of cheese ready so people can put cheese in their own bowls to there liking.

 

CS5

Here is the soup with everything in it ready to serve.

 

CS2

It’s served and ready to eat! Oh wait one more thing.

 

CS3

You have got to have some fresh french bread and butter with it.

I hope you enjoy the soup!

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and have a blessed day.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Yummy Bacon Cheeseburgers

Standard

Yummy Bacon Cheeseburgers calls for:

Hamburger

Bacon

Onions

Tomatoes

Pickles

Buns or sour dough bread 🙂

And the Condiments that you like

I cut the bacon in half. I liked it better that way. And fried them in my beautiful cast iron skillet. And as you can see I have my awesome fried potatoes frying to go with my Yummy Bacon Cheeseburgers.

Now I bought these Burgers already made like this from Safeway for half price. I seasoned them with season salt and lemon pepper and they where very good! Oh yes and you can see my Pumpkin Spice Latte on the counter 🙂

I sliced an onion and fried it in the bacon grease. Yummy!

Then I fried the burgers!

Here is the bacon and onions ready to be put on the Yummy cheeseburgers.

This is a home-grown tomato from my friend Belen’s garden. Look how red it is and it has so much flavor.

Now I used Sour Dough Bread. 1 because that is all I had and 2 because it’s my husbands favorite. I put a little mayo and mustard on mine. My husband’s was plain.

Then I added the Cheeseburger to it

Then comes the onion

and now the bacon

and the tomato’s

here come the pickles

Here it is! All beautiful and ready to be eaten.

The Yummy cheeseburger with the awesome fried potatoes.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog.
