Lots of Salt & Pepper (to taste)
Place chopped bacon in the bottom of a medium-sized pan with butter (or oil)…after a few minutes of browning bacon add veggies and cook until sautéed. Season with Salt & Pepper. Add broth and cook about 30 minutes until potatoes are tender. Add more seasoning, to taste. Garnish with fresh parsley, green onions, bacon, sour cream; any or all will be great with this soup. Enjoy!
*For a creamy texture…slowly add 1 ½ cup milk at the end of the 30 minutes. I did not add the milk, it was so good with out it!
*If you are not a bacon eater just use your favorite sausage or skip this all together and just use your favorite oil to brown the veggies for a minute before adding the broth! Be sure to season it well if not using the salty bacon!
