Bacon Potato Soup recipe--i didn't have cream so I used 2% milk and finished it off with maybe 1-2 oz of cream cheese. Didn't make it any healthier, but man this was the BEST potatoe soup I've ever had!!! Trick is to pre-bake your potatoes for the best soup texture (rather than boiling them in the soup)...
Baked Potatoes with Bacon Slices - All you do is peel whole potatoes, cut them all across, not too thin, and not all the way through, sprinkle with some salt, but not too much, the bacon is salty. Then fill with small bacon slices in between. Bake in a pan with some oil until potatoes are fully cooked, and serve!
Red Potato Soup - the whole family loved this! Just a couple of changes ... Next time I will cut the potatoes smaller, cook the bacon apart from the onion & celery so that it gets crisp & there's no need to drain the mixture after sautéing
