I have had a lot of potato soups in my day, but this was probably the most decadent version I’ve ever tasted.
It looks so unassuming, but what isn’t apparent from the picture is that this is a potato soup that includes bacon, bacon fat, butter, and a whole cup of heavy cream. There’s also some onion and celery chopped up in there so you can say that you got your veggies in while eating it.
The only modifications I made to the recipe (found here) were to omit the cilantro and to skip pureeing half the soup. Otherwise, it’s pretty much as is, and it’s delicious. Also, as you might imagine, it’s heavy as all get out, so definitely give yourself time to digest before going back for seconds.
