Bavarian Potato Soup Recipe

My husband and I first enjoyed this soup on a tour of Bavaria. When I asked for the recipe, it was delivered to our table, written in English—but with no amounts for any of the ingredients! After a few trials, I got it "right" and forwarded the recipe to several of the people that were in our tour group.

8 Servings
Prep: 5 min.
Cook: 2 hours 10 min.

Ingredients

1/2 pound bacon, diced
2-1/2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 large carrots, finely chopped
3 celery ribs, finely chopped
4 leeks, finely chopped
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Chopped fresh parsley, optional

Directions

In a Dutch oven or large saucepan, fry bacon; drain all but 2 tablespoons drippings.
Add vegetables, seasonings and enough water to cover (about 4 cups).
Simmer, covered for 2 hours.
Garnish with parsley if desired.

Yield: 8 servings (2 quarts).

Best-Ever Potato Soup Recipe

You'll be surprised at the taste of this rich, cheesy concoction - it's not a typical potato soup. I came up with the recipe after enjoying baked potato soup at one of our favorite restaurants. I added bacon, and we think that makes it even better. -Coleen Morrissey, Sweet Valley, Pennsylvania

8 Servings
Prep/Total Time: 30 min.

Ingredients

6 bacon strips, diced
3 cups cubed peeled potatoes
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
1 small carrot, grated
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon each celery seed, salt and pepper
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups 2% milk
8 ounces process cheese (Velveeta), cubed
2 green onions, thinly sliced, optional

Directions

• In a large saucepan, cook bacon until crisp; drain.
• Add the potatoes, broth, carrot, onion, parsley, celery seed, salt and pepper.
• Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
• Combine flour and milk until smooth; add to soup.
• Bring to a boil; boil and stir for 2 minutes.
• Add cheese; stir until cheese is melted and the soup is heated through. Garnish with green onions if desired.

Canadian Bacon Potato Soup Recipe

"Canadian bacon adds a hint of smoky flavor to this hearty soup that my
husband loves," writes Cheryl Morgan from her home in Dover, Minnesota. "It doesn't have the typical butter and heavy cream you'll find in many potato soups, but it's still rich and satisfying."

This recipe is: Healthy

7 Servings
Prep: 20 min.
Cook: 20 min.

Ingredients

2 medium onions, chopped
4 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
2 cups chicken broth
1 can (12 ounces) fat-free evaporated milk
5 slices (3 ounces) Canadian bacon, chopped
1 package butter-flavored granules
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
7 tablespoons fat-free sour cream
1/3 cup minced chives

Directions

In a large saucepan or Dutch oven coated with cooking spray, saute
onions until tender. Add potatoes and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat;
cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are very tender. Set
aside 1 cup potato mixture.
Puree remaining mixture in batches in a blender or food processor;
return to the pan. Stir in the milk, Canadian bacon, butter-flavored
granules, salt, pepper and reserved potato mixture. Heat through (do not
boil). Garnish each serving with 1 tablespoon sour cream; sprinkle with
chives. Yield: 7 servings.

Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Butter Buds butter-flavored mix.
Look for it in the spice aisle.

Default Latkes

A latke is the Jewish name for what us hill folk call hash browns.

One of my favorite ways to cook (what us hill folk call fix) them is to do this.

The secret to make a good crispy latke is the way you fry them.
Do not make the grated potatoes into a hard patty.
Take the grated potato and let them drop loosely into the hot oil so the oil gets in between the potato.

One of the traditional ways to eat them is to put powdered or granulated sugar on them as soon as they are retrieved from the pan.

You have to try this they are out of this world.
I got this idea from a show on TV about Hanukkah a few years ago.
