Potato & Bacon Soup

This soup is ideal for when you have an empty fridge and pantry and desperately need to do a shop but can’t be bothered! All you really need are a few potatoes and a little bit of bacon and you’ve got a delicious soup that the whole family will love! It’s a warm, hearty, nutritious and really yummy winter soup!
Ingredients:
  • 4 bacon rashes, diced
  • 30g butter
  • 3 medium onions, diced
  • 2Tbs plain flour
  • 1L (4 cups) water
  • 4 vegetable stock cubes
  • 4 medium potatoes, chopped
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 300g carton of sour cream
  • Parsley to garnish

Notes: The number of vegetable stock depends on the amount required  per 250ml of water. My cubes in the pantry are 1 cube for every 250ml.

 Method:
  • Cook bacon and onion in a large saucepan until lightly browned.
  • Add butter and onions cooking over low heat for about 5 minutes.
  • Add flour, stir over medium heat for 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat, gradually add water, stock cubes and potatoes and bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for about 10 minutes or until potatoes are cooked.
  • Combine egg yolks and sour cream then gradually stir through and reheat without boiling.
  • Serve in your favourite soup bowl with some chopped parsley to garnish.
