  • 8 oz bacon slices
    2 tablespoons butter
    3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    3 cups cubed peeled potatoes
    1 small carrot, grated
    1 tablespoon chopped parsley
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1/2 teaspoon celery seed
    2 cups vegetable or chicken broth
    2 cups 2% milk
    8 ounces cheddar cheese, cubed
    2 green onions, thinly sliced, optional


  • 1. Partially freeze your package of bacon so that it holds together easier while slicing.
    2. Use a sharp knife and cut the frozen bacon into long strips about 1/4 inch wide.
    3. Turn the bacon and cut the strips into pieces also about 1/4 in wide.
    4. Sprinkle with pepper.
    5. Fry in a large saucepan over a medium high heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan.
    Save 1/4 cup of bacon dripping in the saucepan. Add butter and mix in the flour cooking over medium heat for a minute while stirring occasionally. Add the vegetables, seasonings and broth and milk; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until potatoes are tender, 10-15 minutes.
    Stir in cheese until melted. Serve with bacon bits and garnish with green onions.
