Canadian Bacon Potato Soup
Submitted Oct 3, 2003 by LovingLife
Canadian bacon adds a hint of smoky flavor to this hearty soup. It doesn't have the typical butter and heavy cream you'll find in many potato soups, but it's still rich and satisfying.
- 1 (12 fluid ounce) can fat-free evaporated milk
- 1 packet butter-flavored granules
- 1/3 cup minced chives
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 2 medium onions, chopped
- 4 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
- 5 slices (3 ounces) Canadian bacon, chopped
- 7 tablespoons fat-free sour cream
1. In a large saucepan or Dutch oven coated with nonstick cooking spray, saute onions until tender. Add potatoes and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are very tender. Set aside 1 cup potato mixture.
2. Puree remaining mixture in batches in a blender or food processor; return to the pan. Stir in the milk, Canadian bacon, butter-flavored granules, salt, pepper and reserved potato mixture. Heat through (do not boil).
