Recipe type: Soup
Cuisine: Western
Serves: 4 - 6 servings
  • 3 large russet potatoes – peeled and cubed
  • 1 large onion – diced
  • 6 strips streaky bacon – diced
  • 3 stalks spring onions – chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp (28 g) unsalted butter
  • 2 cups chicken stock (I used low sodium chicken stock)
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  1. In a large soup pot, add in the bacon bits and cook until crispy, about 4 mins. Drain the bacon bits (reserve the oil in the pot) and set aside.
  2. Add the butter and onion and sauté until translucent, about 3 mins.
  3. Sprinkle the flour onto the onion and stir constantly for 1 min.
  4. Add in stock, milk, potatoes and season with salt and pepper (depending on the salt content of your stock, start with 1 tsp salt first and slowly adjust).
  5. Cover and cook for approx. 15 – 20 mins until potatoes are soft. Add in spring onions, cheese and bacon (reserve some for garnish) and cook for a further 5 mins. Taste and adjust seasoning before turning off the heat.
