Creamy Cheesy Potato Soup with Bacon

A creamy, cheesy potato soup that gets a shortcut with cream soups.

Creamy Cheesy Potato Soup with Bacon

Okay. So yes, this is a bit of a "cheater" cheesy potato soup, but that doesn't mean it isn't good. And who needs to know but you?

There is one convenience product that I use a goodly bit and honestly, it's pretty much a staple down here in the south. In fact, I'd be willing to bet that you could open just about any pantry around town and find any number of varieties of this wonderful canned product.

I am talking of course about Campbell's condensed soups! And, for me, it really does need to be Campbell's because the generics just do not stack up in flavor in my little ole humble opinion. Cream of mushroom, cream of chicken, cream of celery, cheddar cheese, tomato, these are sometimes, but rarely used as out of the can reconstituted soups, but rather they are more often used in cooking as an ingredient to enhance homemade soups, stews, sauces, meats and casseroles instead. This recipe is one of those and it sure is yummy. I hope you like it.
