AD Potato Soup

Serves: 8 | Level: Easy | Approximate Time: 45 minutes


  • 8 strips (uncooked) turkey bacon or regular bacon
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and diced into 1-inch pieces
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon Addy Daddy S.B.F. Seasoning
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, scallions, and additional sour cream and bacon for topping (optional)



  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Place the bacon on a baking sheet and cook for about 14 minutes or until crispy. Be careful not to burn it. Once cooked, set it aside.
  2. While the bacon is cooking, in a large Dutch oven or soup pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until tender, about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add the minced garlic to the pot and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  4. Sprinkle the all-purpose flour over the ingredients in the pot and stir until smooth, creating a roux.
  5. Add the diced potatoes, chicken broth, milk, heavy cream, sea salt, and Addy Daddy S.B.F. Seasoning to the pot. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
  6. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, approximately 10 minutes.
  7. Reduce the heat to low and carefully transfer 5 cups of the soup to a blender. Puree the soup until smooth. Be cautious when blending hot liquids.
  8. Return the pureed soup to the pot and add the sour cream. Stir well to incorporate the ingredients.
  9. Allow the soup to simmer for an additional 15 minutes to let the flavors meld together.
  10. Serve the creamy potato soup hot. If desired, top each serving with shredded cheddar cheese, scallions, and additional sour cream and bacon.
  11. Enjoy the comforting and flavorful Creamy Potato Soup seasoned with Addy Daddy S.B.F. Seasoning.
