  • 6 strips bacon, chopped
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, diced
  • 4-6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup (30g) all purpose flour
  • 4 cups (950ml) chicken broth/stock
  • 2 cups (475ml) milk of choice
  • 2-2 1/2 pounds (900-1125g) Potatoes of choice, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup (110g) sour cream (fat level of choice)
  1. In a large pot brown the bacon, onion, and celery until onion is soft and translucent (about 5-7 minutes). Add garlic and stir for 30 seconds. 

  2. Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute to remove the raw flour taste. Stir in chicken broth and milk until well combined. Add potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer on medium-low to low for 10-15 minutes or until potatoes are tender. The smaller your potatoes the quicker they will cook. 

  3. When potatoes are tender remove from heat and stir in sour cream. 

Recipe Notes
  1. I like to use Yukon gold potatoes because they hold their shape well after cooking. However, any potato will work for this recipe. 
  2. Nutrition Facts: Nutrition was calculated using low sodium chicken broth, whole milk, and regular sour cream. Since different brands of ingredients have different nutritional information, the information shown is just an estimate.
