Potato Bacon Soup

  • 6-7 large potatoes, peeled and cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cans (14.5 oz) chicken broth
  • 1 can (10 ¾ oz.) cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can (10 ¾ oz.) cream of celery soup
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened & cubed
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup milk, for thinning, optional
  • 1 pkg real bacon bits or cooked crumbled bacon (any amount that you like)

Cook potatoes and onion in chicken broth along with just enough water to cover potatoes and onions; cook until tender. Once potatoes are tender, use a potato masher to mash a few to make soup thicker, (optional). Add cubes of cream cheese; remove from heat until melted. Return kettle to low/medium heat; add half of bacon, soups, butter, milk and spices; cook for another 10 — 15 minutes. Garnish soup with cheese, bacon bits and green onions.
