Recipe By:
  • 4 medium Yukon gold or red potatoes, peeled and diced into small cubes

  • 4 T. butter
  • ½ t. onion salt
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 (13-oz.) can chicken broth
  • ¼ t. dried sweet basil
  • ⅓ c. instant potato flakes
  • 1 pt. half and half (can be fat-free)
  • Chopped green onions

  • Crumbled bacon bits
  1. Saute onion in butter until soft.

  3. Season with onion salt, regular salt and pepper.
  4. Add broth and basil.
  5. Simmer covered, until potatoes are tender.
  6. Add instant potato flakes. Stir until well blended. If you want a total puree soup, at this point use the hand immersion blender or place in food processor and puree it or you can leave it chunky.
