The first step is to cut the raw bacon into small pieces.
Cook the bacon pieces in a medium-sized skillet over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until they are well-done.
Transfer the cooked crispy bacon to a bowl once it has completely cooled.
Also, grease a large stovetop stockpot with moisture.
Cook 1 cup of finely chopped red onion, 1 cup of finely chopped celery, and 1 cup of finely diced carrots over medium-low heat.
After the vegetables are translucent and fragrant, cook them for five minutes. Combine well.
Afterward, add 1 tbsp minced garlic and 1/3 cup of green onion. Mix for 30 seconds.
Add two and a half tablespoons of Lawry’s Seasoned Salt, three tablespoons of freshly cracked black pepper, and 1/3tablespoons of white pepper. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and stir for 20 seconds.
Mix the diced potatoes thoroughly with the other vegetables.
Add 1 cup of water to the stockpot and cook the vegetables, especially the potatoes, for 15 minutes to 20 minutes, until very tender.
Pour 2 cups of chicken stock and 2 1/4 cups of heavy whipped cream into the pan. Using a large wooden spoon, mix well.
You should cook the mixture for 1 hour 30 minutes to 2 hours until the potatoes are wilted.
Using an immersion blender, blend the potatoes thoroughly in order to create a puree like soup.
The soup can be thickened by adding more chicken broth.. Once done, whisk the soup until the cheese is completely melted.
Add 1/4 cup of chopped chives, 1/4 cup of chopped green onion, 1/2 cup of shredded cheese, 1/4 cups of bacon bits, and a sprinkle of ground black pepper to taste the soup. Obviously, you don’t have to garnish with all items if you don’t want to. Saltgrass recipes offer all of these in every type of soup, so I garnish my soup with them all. The combination is delicious. Enjoy!
