A relatively quick, spur of the moment dinner. Serve with rolls, French bread, garlic buttered bread, or grilled cheese sandwiches.
Cook bacon in a high-sided frying pan over medium heat until crisp. Remove it from the pan with a slotted spoon and put it onto some paper towels. Add the potatoes to the bacon drippings and cook over medium heat until crisp. Remove with slotted spoon onto paper towels.
Remove all but about three tablespoons of the bacon drippings. Add red and yellow bell peppers, scallions, and carrot and cook just until vegetables are tender. Add the flour and whisk continuously for several minutes. Add the milk and whisk continuously until thickened. Whisk in the chicken stock and return the bacon, potatoes, and vegetables to the pot. Add seasonings, cover and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes.
Serve with French bread, rolls, bread and butter, or grilled cheese sandwiches for a quick and simple work night meal.
I have been trying to make beer cheese soup successfully for years and I think it was the addition of butternut squash that sealed the deal. It not only helps with the flavor, but also the consistency. The recipe also calls for one of my favorite beers; Great Lakes Brewery’s Edmond Fitzgerald Porter. Add to that two types of cheddar and Gouda cheese and you’ve got a winner!
When the nip in the air becomes a definite chill then it’s time. It’s time for soup. There is no more comforting or sustaining a soup than Baked Potato Soup with Sausage and Roasted Peppers. When there is a fire crackling in the fireplace and this soup is on the table, all is well in our world regardless of what is going on outside.
