Ingredients

5 whole garlic bulb
*
2 slices bacon
diced
1 cup onions
diced
1 cup carrots
diced
2 each garlic cloves
minced
6 cups russet potatoes
diced
4 cups chicken broth, low salt
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
*
1 each bay leaves
*
1 cup milk, 2%
*
¼ cup parsley leaves
fresh, chopped

Directions

Notes: Thickened by mashed potatoes, this rich soup gets its hearty, smoky flavor from the addition of bacon and garlic.

Remove white papery skin from each garlic head (do not peel or separate cloves).

Wrap each head separately in aluminum foil.

Bake at 350℉ (180℃) F for 1 hour; let cool for 10 minutes.

Separate cloves, and squeeze to extract ¼ cup of garlic pulp; discard the skins.

Cook bacon in a large saucepan over medium-high heat until crisp.

Add onion, carrot, and minced garlic, and sauté 5 minutes.

Add potato, broth, salt, pepper, and bay leaf; bring to a boil.

Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until potato is tender; remove bay leaf.

Combine garlic pulp and 2 cups potato mixture in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.

Return purée to pan; stir in milk, and cook over low heat until thoroughly heated.

Remove from heat and stir in chopped parsley.

I LOVE this soup. It is delicious and easy to make. The real test of a potato soup is if my Irish husband likes it...and he says it's "grand".
