Author: Mindi with iSaveA2Z


  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 4 cups peeled and cubed potatoes - I cook these quickly in the microwave let them cool completely and then peel and cube.
  • 1/4 cup minced onion - I would saute this in the pan used to cook the bacon
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 8oz package of cream cheese at room temperature, cut into chunks
  • 6 slices of cooked bacon cut into small pieces


  • Combine broth, potatoes, sauteed onion and spices in a large pot
  • Boil on medium heat for about 20 minutes - smash just a few of the potatoes to release the starch and thicken the soup
  • Reduce to low heat and add cream cheese and bacon
  • Stir frequently until cream cheese melts - It melts easier/quicker if you mash the cubes with your spoon
  • Let soup simmer for 20 to 25 minutes and serve warm
