S.A.’s Killer Potato Soup
I was given this hand-written, hearty recipe 20 years ago by an Air Force wife. It’s super nutritious including several vegetables, potatoes for carbs, and bacon for protein.
When planning meals, I like to think of how to incorporate small amounts of protein (a la Dan Fong in Patriots ) for nutrition and flavoring from stored foods such as canned meats and either commercial dehydrated foods or my own stores. This soup features root vegetables and is a great starter or can be the meal along with some good bread. It’s easy to make as nothing needs to be pre-cooked or sauteed.
4 large potatoes
2 stalks celery
2 T beef bouillon granules
2 strips canned bacon (or use fresh)
1 large onion
1/2 t. pepper
Peel vegetables, dice everything. Combine ingredients, add water, about 2 inches to cover all. If using dried veggies, adjust water for rehydration. Cook everything until soft. Allow to cool. Puree in blender. Heat to serve.
Sprinkle a little paprika or cheese or chopped herbs on top, if desired. A real crowd pleaser. Who doesn’t like bacon and potatoes and tons of flavor?
