O’CHARLEY’S LOADED POTATO SOUP
3 pounds red potatoes
1/4 cup margarine, melted
1/4 cup flour
8 cups half-and-half
1 (16 ounce) block Velveeta cheese, melted
White pepper, to taste
Garlic powder, to taste
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/2 pound bacon, fried crisply
1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup fresh chives, chopped
Dice unpeeled red potatoes into 1/2-inch cubes. Place in a large sauce pan, cover with water and bring to a boil. Let boil for 10 minutes or until 3/4 cooked.
In a separate large sauce pan, combine melted margarine and flour, mixing until smooth. Place over low heat and gradually add half-and-half, stirring constantly. Continue to stir until smooth and liquid begins to thicken.
Add melted Velveeta. Stir well. Drain potatoes and add to cream mixture. Stir in pepper, garlic powder and hot pepper sauce. Cover and cook over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Place soup into individual serving bowls and top with crumbled bacon, shredded cheese, and chives. I also garnish mine with sour cream.
Makes 8 servings
