Try this recipe, comfort food in its truest form.

Spring is on its way, but in the meantime let’s warm ourselves up with delicious Rustic Potato Cheddar Soup. Comfort food in its truest form.


  • 4 Bacon Slices
  • 1 Large Onion
  • 1 Pound Boiling Potatoes
  • 1/4 Cup Unbleached Flour
  • 1 3/4 Cups Water
  • 1 1/2 Cup Chicken Broth
  • 1/2 Cup Stout Beer
  • 2 Cups Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons Chopped Chives  



 Chop the bacon. Place in a large saucepan and cook over a medium heat for 8 minutes until crisp. Stir occasionally.

Transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain. Reserve the fat in the pan.

Chop the onion and peel the potatoes. Cut the potatoes into half-inch cubes. Cook the onion in the reserved fat for 10 minutes over a medium heat. Stir occasionally.

In a measuring cup stir together the flour and water. Add the flour mixture to the onions. Add the potatoes and the chicken broth. Stir together and cook on low for 14 minutes. You will want the potatoes to be soft.
