We made this for dinner on a rainy, cold Minnesota spring day. It was perfect! Even my girls asked for seconds.
I had a recipe at one point, but lost it. I searched for one similar, but just couldn't find one. So, I took a chance and made one up on my own.
It turned out so good that I had to post it ahead of time.
This is how I did it...
4-5 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 cooking onion, chopped
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
5. cups of chicken broth (or prepare bullion ahead)
1 cup of milk
1 cup of cream (or 3T of cream cheese if you don't have cream)
S&P to taste
chopped cooked bacon, green onions chopped, cheddar cheese
Melt your butter in a stock pot, add onions and garlic and cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Add chicken broth and potatoes and cook until potatoes are soft (about 30 minutes)lower the heat and add the cream and milk. Mash your potatoes, or continue to cook for a few minutes, then puree.
Serve hot and garnish with bacon, green onions and cheddar.
