Houlihan’s Potato Soup Recipe: Unveiling the Delight

Ingredients: – 4 slices bacon, chopped – 1 tablespoon butter – 1 onion, diced – 2 cloves garlic, minced – 4 cups chicken broth – 4 cups diced potatoes (about 4 medium potatoes) – 1 teaspoon dried thyme – 1 teaspoon dried parsley

– 1/2 teaspoon paprika – Salt and black pepper to taste – 1 cup heavy cream – 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese – 2 green onions, thinly sliced (for garnish) – Additional shredded cheddar cheese (for garnish) – Sour cream (optional, for garnish)

In a large pot or Dutch oven, cook the chopped bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove the cooked bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside, leaving the bacon drippings in the pot.

Add the butter to the pot with the bacon drippings and melt it over medium heat. Add the diced onion to the pot and sauté for 3-4 minutes, or until softened and translucent. Stir in the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.

Pour in the chicken broth and add the diced potatoes to the pot. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring the mixture to a simmer. Once simmering, reduce the heat to medium-low and add the dried thyme, dried parsley, paprika, salt, and black pepper to the pot. Stir well to combine.

Let the soup simmer gently for about 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and cooked through. Use an immersion blender to partially blend the soup directly in the pot, leaving some chunks of potatoes for texture. Alternatively, you can transfer a portion of the soup to a blender and blend until smooth, then return it to the pot.

Stir in the heavy cream and shredded cheddar cheese until the cheese is melted and the soup is creamy. Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning if necessary, adding more salt and pepper as desired.

Ladle the potato soup into bowls and garnish each serving with some of the cooked bacon, thinly sliced green onions, additional shredded cheddar cheese, and a dollop of sour cream if desired.

Serve the potato soup hot and enjoy the delightful flavors of Houlihan’s Potato Soup!
