Thanks to Chef Brooks for the recipe below!
Potato and Bacon Soup
1 small Yellow Onion-diced
1 small Carrot-peeled and diced
4 stalks Celery-diced
Salt and Pepper
1 tbsp.-Crushed Red Pepper Flake
1 tbsp. Fresh Chopped thyme, rosemary and parsley
2 qt. Chicken Stock
1 qt. Heavy Whipping Cream
In a large sauce pot, cook the bacon until almost crispy. There should be liquid in the bottom of the pan. Add the carrots, celery and the onion. Saut for 3 or 4 minutes. Add the potatoes, salt, pepper, crushed red pepper and the fresh herbs. Cook for 2 or 3 minutes more and add the butter. When it melts, add the flour and mix well. All of the ingredients should clump together.
Add the chicken stock and stir. Allow it to come to a boil.
While wait on the stock to boil, heat the cream. Do not let it boil over. Add the warm cream to the soup and let it simmer for at least 30 minutes. Serve with a great grill cheese sandwich.
