Use your blender for this easy potato soup that gets its creaminess from the addition of sour cream and savory flavor from bacon, onion and garlic.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a large pot over medium-high heat, cook bacon, stirring occasionally, until crisp and browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. When cool enough to handle, crumble.

Step 2

Discard all but 2 Tbsp. fat and return pot to medium heat. Add onion, garlic and thyme and sauté until onion is soft, about 7 minutes. Add potatoes and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer until potatoes are tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Working in batches, process in blender with sour cream until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Ladle soup into bowls and top with chives and bacon.

We found it pretty bland and it had an oniony after taste. Might try to make it again, cutting back to 1/4 cup of onions & adding some cheese.

My husband and I really enjoyed this dish and I plan to make it again in the future. It is a simple recipe and the instructions are easy to follow. We made extra bacon bits because you can never have enough bacon and I sprinkled some sharp cheddar cheese on top. I've already passed this recipe on to some friends!
