My first attempt at capturing a dish for "Cooking Up A Memory" class & my family recipe album. There are things I will do differently in my next food shot & still working on getting lighting figured out but feel it's a lot better than I usually get with my dark kitchen!
I first had this version of Baked Potato Soup at a weekend crop about 8 years ago and have been making it for the family ever since, so thought I'd pass it on. Enjoy!
Baked Potato Soup
- 10 slices bacon
- 1/2 C chopped onion (optional)
- 2 C cubed potatoes (I've upped this to 3 Cups)
- 1 C water (*see directions)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
- 1 C sour cream
- 1 1/2 C milk
- cheddar cheese, shredded
- green onions, sliced thin
Cut bacon into little pieces. Reserve some for garnish. Over medium heat in 3-quart saucepan, heat bacon until browned. Add onions; continue cooking until tender. Drain grease. Add potatoes, water (*you want to have enough water with potatoes to get them tender & not burn/stick), salt and pepper; continue cooking until potatoes are tender 10-15 minutes. Reduce heat to low; stir in soup, sour cream and milk. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until heated through. Top with reserved bacon, green onions & cheddar cheese.
Hoping to get another family recipe cooked & photographed this weekend, along with "Breakfast with the Firemen" on Sunday. Get to check out the station renovation as well, should be nice!
Any fun plans this weekend? Have a good one!
