First things first, here is me in my adorable Lucy apron, by Scarlet Threads. Adorable, yes? :)
Cheesey Baked Potato Soup
4 cups chicken broth
4 cups peeled and chopped potatos
1/3 cup minced onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1- 8oz package of cream cheese, softened and cut into chunks
chopped cooked bacon
1- combine broth, onions, potatos and spices in stock pot and bring to boil
2- boil on medium heat until potatos are fork tender
3- mash about half of the potatos so that the stock thickens
4- reduce to low and add cream cheese
5- stir frequently, until cream cheese is melted and soup is thick
6- top with chedder and bacon crumbles and try not to explode with yumminess
First off, I don't measure. It says four cups of potatos, but I used three HUGE potatos, so I think I had more than four cups, so to even it, I added about two more cups of chicken broth. I should have added more cream cheese too, but I didn't have any more, but it didn't seem to matter. It still came out really well, and was so creamy and delicious. I am also very generous when it comes to spices, ha! This recipe was super easy, though a bit time-consuming, since there was such frequent stirring :)
Still though, SO worth it! Make it, try it, eat it, love it.
Also, go check out Scarlet Threads blog. They have some new products, including a Christmas tree skirt and a new Mommy and Me apron combo and are having naming contests! If they use your name, you will win a coupon for 50% off any item! Also, Scarlet Threads does a Tasty Tuesday too! You may notice their last TT was baked potato soup! Funny though, I saw my recipe the day before they posted theirs. Great minds think alike, eh? :)
I know many people do the Tasty Tuesday posts, so I have no links to anywhere, but let me know if you've tried something fun, and if I should make it as well!
What are you cooking this week?
