Hearty Bacon Potato Soup

It's cool out, the leaves are nearly all gone here, yet we still have green-ish grass...welcome to MN! Though I am not complaining. Madelynn's 1st birthday party, well 2 of them actually thanks to large families, is this weekend and it is going to be to GORGEOUS out 50-60's! I cannot wait (we've been in the 30-40's here lately). But with this fall weather comes some of my favorite recipes...Hearty Bacon Potato Soup being one of them. And I wanted to share with you how to make this yummy meal. We usually serve ours with homemade bread or french bread for dunking :) Enjoy!

Hearty Bacon Potato Soup


  • 8slices bacon, cut into in 1 inch pieces
  • 2cups cubed new red potatoes, cut into 1/2inch pieces
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 8oz sour cream
  • 1 1/2cup milk
  • 1/4cup celery, finely chopped
  • 1 can (10-3/4oz) cream of chicken soup, condensed
  • 1 can whole kernel corn, drained
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ tsp thyme

In a 3qt saucepan cook bacon over medium heat for 10mins.

Add potatoes and onions. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender (15-25mins).

Add remaining ingredients.

Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until heated through (10-15mins).
