Potato – Bacon Soup

April 22, 2011

You know what’s the irony? I hate potatoes. Ask anyone close to me and they would know that when it comes to potatoes, i only eat fries & nothing else. So hence, this Potato-Bacon soup is definitely an amazement to be coming from me. But i am so glad i cooked it cause it was simply delicious and my dad loved it. He could eat it just with his rice. Here’s the recipe. Enjoy! (:

Ingredients:
– 6 slices of bacon
(oh yes! you can get halal bacon from sheng siong),
an alternative would be skinless hotdog, sliced.
– 1 big onion, diced
– 2 stalks of celery, diced
– handful of celery top(leaves) diced
– 2 potatos, diced
– 4 to 5 cups of water.
You can use chicken broth instead for added taste.
– Salt
– Black pepper
– handful of parsley, diced
– 4 1/2 tablespn cornstarch/cornflour mixed with 1/2 cup of cold water.
– 1 cup cream
– 4 cups whole milk (i used HL milk)

Method:
1. Cook bacon till crisp. Once cooked, remove it into a separate plate.
2. In the same pot with the leftover bacon fried oil, saute the onions and celery leaves until softened.
3. Once softened, in that very same pot, throw in your potatoes, celery and pour in water till it covers the potatoes nicely.
4. Simmer until potatoes are fork tender BUT NOT MUSHY. It took about at least 20 minutes for me.
5. Make a slurry by combining the corn starch with cold water and add it to the potato mixture, a little at a time.
6. Continue to cook until the potato mixture is bubbly and thickened.
7. Then add in the milk, cream and bacon.
8. Cook until mixture comes back to a simmer.
9. Serve in a bowl, garnished with parsely.
NB: You can also leave a portion of bacon aside to garnish it together with your parsely.

My beautiful potao – bacon soup. Am proud of it.. (:
