Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 medium-sized baked potatoes (more if you want to garnish with potato–I highly recommend)
  • 8 slices of center-cut bacon (I love Wegmans’ brand)
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 7 cups unsweetened cashew milk (or any preferred milk)
  • 2 oz shredded cheddar (more if you want extra for garnish)
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (more if you want extra for garnish)
  • 1 oz Neufchatel cheese (1/3 fat cream cheese)
  • 3 scallions, finely chopped
  • kosher salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Dice bacon and cook over medium heat in a stockpot until bacon is crisp.  Remove bacon with a slotted spoon, but keep bacon grease in the pot.
  2. Cook diced onions until onions are translucent and soft (about 5 minutes).
  3. Add garlic and sprinkle the flour all over the onion mixture.  Stir and cook for about 30 seconds.
  4. Slowly pour in the cashew milk while stirring to make sure there are no lumps.  Add potatoes and bring to a boil.  Once boiling, reduce to a simmer for about 10 minutes.
  5. Taste and season to your liking.  I added 3 tsp of kosher salt and about 2 tsp of black pepper.  Add cream cheese, Greek yogurt, and stir until melted.
  6. If you want the soup smooth, blend the soup with an emersion blender.  
  7. Fold in cheese and scallions.  Serve and top with bacon, cheese, greek yogurt, and maybe more baked potatoes if you’re feeling wild.
