The Perfect Chunky Soup for Winter Weekends

Anita has devised a hearty soup which will suit just about everybody.  Based on an old German Recipe, this soup contains basic ingredients that are always on hand.  You don’t require a blender to make this soup and it only takes about 30 minutes to get it onto the table!

If you have extra people arrive for dinner, no problem, just increase the quantity of each ingredient (alter the number of serves in the recipe box below).

You can adjust the flavour by simply adding more stock powder and some pepper.  It can be left simmering on the stove to develop a thicker texture or you can just reheat this soup when required.

Anita likes to serve the soup with some crusty bread or you can serve it with toast, cheesies or hot rolls and parmesan cheese.

Recipe Notes

Chunky German Potato and Bacon Soup

If your bacon is really lean, just add a tablespoon of oil when frying off with the onion.

Add some chopped parsley if desired.

Anita's Chef Hack:  Buy bacon in bulk and divide into bundles of 4 rashes and freeze.  Bacon is a great flavour addition to many dishes and defrosts quickly.
