Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat, turning frequently, until browned and crisp, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer bacon to paper towels to drain. Once bacon has cooled, crumble.

  • Warm oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion, carrots and celery. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until vegetables have softened, approximately 5 minutes. Add potatoes and broth. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer. Cook until potatoes are tender, about 12 minutes. Using an immersion blender, puree soup until smooth.

  • Over medium heat, whisk milk and cream cheese into soup, stirring constantly until cream cheese has fully melted, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Divide among 4 bowls, then top with bacon.
