Stuffed Potato Soup

  • Author: Chantelle Ellem


On a cool night, you’ll want to tuck into this delicious, creamy, stuffed potato soup, which tastes like all your favourite bits of a stuffed potato without all the fuss.



3 large potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters

1 cup diced bacon

1 brown onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tbsp butter

1 tbsp plain flour

1 1/2 cup chicken stock

1 cup cream

2 tbsp sour cream

1 cup grated tasty cheese

Chives, finely chopped, to serve


1. Cook the potatoes in a large saucepan filled with boiling water. Cook until very tender. Drain and mash using a potato masher.

2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, over high heat, cook the bacon until crispy. Set bacon aside, and keep some of the bacon fat in the pan.

3. Cook the onion in the bacon fat, until softened. Add the garlic and butter, and cook until fragrant, around 1 minute. Add the flour, and cook for 1 minute.

4. Add the chicken stock, and whisk until smooth. Slowly add the cream (don’t add too fast or it will curdle). Remove from heat.

5. Add in the potatoes, and stir. Use a stick blender until the consistency is smooth. Add the sour cream and cheese, and stir until smooth. Serve topped with bacon and chives.
