Baked Potato Soup (gluten free)
Today was a happy day. My husband actually went and did my grocery shopping for me! I cannot remember the last time someone else did the shopping. It was a nice treat! I stayed home in the kitchen with the kids and cooked and chatted all day long. Then, to my suprise, my husband got me a present! Look at her!
I think she is beautiful! Some of my friends think I am weird because to me getting a kitchen tool is one of the best things in the world you can get me. I love this new cutting board. Thank you hunny!!
It was meat and potatoes night here in my house. My least favorite night. I decided if I am going to make them their steak, Then I am at least going to enjoy my potatoes! Baked Potato soup sounded perfect. I have made this soup so many ways. It is always good. This time I adapted from allrecipes.com because it is a simple quick recipe that anyone can follow.
3 bacon strips, diced
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tablespoons gluten free all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 cups chicken broth
2 large baked potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

Cook bacon until crisp.
Drain, Add onion and garlic in the drippings until tender.
Stir in flour, salt, basil and pepper and add bacon again; mix well.
