One of the best potato soup you could taste. Never would have thought that one day this dish would be one of my favorite. Started when we dined in at Legend's restaurant back in Tennessee. Husband's favorite so he encourage me to try also so without a second thought i ordered from then on, my affair of this delicious side dish is pretty strong, lol. I learned how to make my own version of creamy and silky potato soup inspired by the restaurant and i didn't it! i admit mine is better than any other gourmet places in our locale that we've been, truly speaking! So without furthering it i will share my recipe and try it for yourself!

You need:

10 peeled large potatoes (slice to mini square portion)
6 bacon strips (chopped)
chopped medium onion
4 cups water
4 cups 2% milk
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp paprika
dash of garlic salt
a cup of cheddar cheese
1/4 cup instant mash potato mix (for creamy soup)
a cup of garlic Parmesan croutons
1/2 cup of chives (optional)


In a pot, toss chopped bacon until crisp. Set aside. Using the bacon greased sauteed onion until fragrant and caramelized. Toss the slice potato in the pot, stir and add paprika, garlic salt, salt and pepper the stir gradually. After stirring, pour the water and let it simmer for 10 minutes. Then pour the milk, stir it continuously. Then simmer it approx 45 min to an hour in medium heat with continuous checking and stirring to prevent on sticking underneath until the potatoes completely cook. ( JUST ADD WATER OR MILK) if the sauce evaporates a lil to your desired. Then pour cheese and the quarter a cup of instant mash potato mix for thickening the soup slightly and the set aside crisp bacon chunks. Simmer it for extra minutes and serve moderately hot along with your favorite garnish on top (i use the croutons in garlic Parmesan) Enjoy the creamy and savory potato soup.

Happy Cooking!
