This has been one of my faves since I found it last fall. It's a Rachael Ray recipe and it's to die for! I made it last night, it was yummy and delish and hit the spot! Here's the recipe:
2 lg. baking potatoes, peeled, halved length wise & sliced crosswise
3 c. milk
Salt & Pepper
1/2 head cauliflower, cored & chopped
1 bunch of scallions
4 slices of bacon
1 c. shredded cheese
1/4 c. sour cream
In large pot combine potatoes, 2 c. milk and 1 tsp. of salt. Cover and boil over medium heat.
Once boiling, lower the heat to med/low heat add cauliflower, scallion whites, cover and simmer until tender about 10-15 min.
Add the remaining 1 c. milk, then puree soup and season with salt & pepper.
Microwave bacon on high until crispy, 3-4 min. Crumble.
Top with cheese & sour cream.
Tips: I always make a double batch. If you'd prefer not to use the cauliflower just double up on the potatoes. I've made it both ways and it's delish with or with out.
You don't have to complete puree the soup, I usually just break up the potatoes with a masher so that it's still kinda chunky, if you like it that way. I do!
