Mom’s Potato Soup


A creamy soup with tender potatoes, onions, celery and bacon bits. One of my favorites growing up!  ♥

2 strips of bacon, fried and crumbled
1/2 cup diced sweet onion
1/3 cup sliced celery (about 1 stalk)
3 cups cubed potatoes
4 cups gluten free chicken broth
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup half and half
2 T. cornstarch
3 T. cold water

In a medium pot, fry bacon strips over medium heat until crispy. Remove from pot and cool on paper towels. Add onions and celery to bacon drippings and sauté until tender. Salt and pepper to taste. Add chicken broth and potatoes to pot. Increase heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. In a small bowl, add water to cornstarch and stir to combine. While stirring contents of pot, add cornstarch mixture. Continue to stir until soup thickens. Turn off heat. Stir in milk. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately. Serve with gluten free croutons. Makes 6 Cups. 4 servings.
