Outback steakhouse cheese potato bacon soup
I have had their potato soup once and loved it. I finally got around to searching for the recipe and thought I'd share with you guys too :)
Potatoes (6-8 depending on the size)
1 Onion, diced
4 14oz cans of chicken broth
2 cups water
Celery salt to taste
Pepper to taste
1 dash of basil
1 dash of sugar
2 sticks of butter
3/4 cup of flour
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
4-6 pieces of cooked bacon, chopped
Chopped chives (amount depends on your preference – I like a lot)
2 cups shredded Monterrey Jack / Cheddar cheese blend.
Boil the potatoes, peel and set aside (someone suggested you rub with kosher salt and bake the potatoes, leaving the skin on)
In a large soup pot, melt the butter over a low to medium heat, being careful not to burn it.
Add the onion and cook until softened.
Add the flour and stir while it cooks for about 3 minutes.
Slowly add the chicken broth, water, salt, pepper, basil and sugar.
Bring to a boil, stirring often with a wire whisk.
Gradually add the heavy cream until you’ve reached the proper consistency.
Chop the potatoes into bite sized cubes and add to the soup.
Simmer for approximately 5 minutes to bring the potatoes to temperature.
Ladle the soup into individual bowls and garnish with chopped bacon, chives and the cheese blend.0
