    Default Potato bacon soup?

    Anyone have a recipe for it? Like the one you can get from Timmy's and Subway. I've searched online but no luck at finding anything similar.

    When I make up a lie and can not back out of it, I will just say I am leaving town for a funeral and that should cover up the lie.
    Self-laudation abounds among the unpolished; but nothing can stamp a person more sharply as ill-bred.

    I've tried two different recipes for this type of soup. Both have been alright. One being creamy and the other more soupy?? I tried the recipe in the link and we all really enjoyed it. Definitely the favourite of the three and will keep using it. Yummmm

    Try frying breakfast sausage, cutting it up and using it place of bacon...........trust me, it is sooo good. Potato and Sausage soup is a regular comfort food in our house for winter. Would've shared our recipe, but we don't actually have anything written down.

    with the recipe given, i would put bacon in the pan first,, chopped,,, brown it a bit,, then add your onion, celery and carrot,,, maybe 1 clove of garlic,,, cook for a bit,, take it out and add some stock,,, chicken would be my choice,,,add your chopped potatoes,, put a lid on it and cook until potatoes are done,,, add back the celery onion bacon,, cook a bit,,, the puree ,,, then add cream.......you can follow any cream soup recipe ,, you just have to change the ingredients!
