1. Bring On the Bacon!

What better way to start making the perfect meal than to fry up some tasty bacon! Bacon gives potato soup just the right amount of intensity. Also, it adds texture to its creaminess. You start here, by cooking the bacon, because you will be using the grease left in the pan to saute some of the other ingredients shortly. The amount you use really depends upon your tastes. To get a good baseline, try the recipe with one pound. It’s bacon, after all - the more, the merrier! Once cooked, remove the bacon from the skillet, but leave the grease where it is.
