Creamy Potato Soup with Bacon Vinaigrette

Creamy Potato Soup with Bacon Vinaigrette

You know the old, “you had me at hello?”  Well, Food 52, you had me at “bacon vinaigrette.”  Really.  Two words that I have never put together before in my life…bacon and vinaigrette, and now I regret all those wasted years.  All those bowls of naked potato soup. 

I found Creamy Potato Soup with Bacon Vinaigrette by searching my most favorite thing in the whole world – Eat Your Books.  Now, that they have indexed some food blogs, the possibilities are endless.  As I mentioned on Monday, I am all about fall, and I wanted one of my first fall soups to be a classic – potato soup.

I thought, wrongly I must add, that there was really nothing new under the sun when it comes to potato soup.  But when I entered it in my Eat Your Books search and my eyes locked immediately onto bacon vinaigrette, I knew something special was going to happen.

And it did.  This was the best potato soup I have ever eaten or made.  Seriously.  I don’t think I’ve ever used rosemary in my potato soups – it was wonderful.  But really the show stopper…the bacon vinaigrette.  I love the addition of vinegar to soups and keep a bottle of chili pepper vinegar just for stirring into your soup at the table, everyone adding as much or as little they like.  So this was beyond amazing.  I can imagine in on bean soup, vegetable soup…heck any kind of soup.  And what about on a salad!  Or stirred into some grains.  It is my new most favorite thing!

Follow the link above and make this.  Seriously.

    Thanks for this post! I promised a friend that I would make her potato soup and possibly add some tofu to boost the protein, which she needs for health reasons.

    Eat Your Books is a great tool, I’m a member too. That reminds me, I need to finish indexing the book I volunteered to do.

    I make a warm bacon honey vinaigrette based on Rafferty’s house dressing, muy bueno!

    potato soup is and will always be a great source of comfort for me. the bacon vinaigrette is the perfect accompaniment, and rosemary with taters rocks!

    I made it yesterday afternoon — a rainy Sunday — and it was great. Easy, too. And, you probably have everything right at home to make it. Thanks!
