I have a hard time cooking things my husband will eat. I generally prefer lighter, veggie-filled dishes with just a touch of meat, where his tastes run exactly counter to that.
This Baked Potato Soup from Domesticated Wild Child, though, fit both of our tastes exactly. It’s ridiculously tasty and nicely filling. My husband thought it tasted like some sort of BBQ, but it reminded me a little of a version of Au Grautin potatoes I had years ago.
Obviously, the recipe’s not vegan/vegetarian friendly, but you could probably substitute the dairy and meat for your favorite vegan alternatives.
As much as I liked it, I wouldn’t have it all the time, either. I can’t handle too much dairy, myself, and I know bacon isn’t the healthiest things out there.
However, I think it’s going to be one of my new comfort foods. It’s very easy to make and the ingredients aren’t hard to find. It’s an easier alternative to beef stew.
I had actually made the first batch on Friday, and it was gone by Saturday evening. I made another batch yesterday, and all that’s left is a small container set aside for hubby’s lunch tomorrow.
I think I’ll double the recipe the next time I make it, since my crock-pot is big enough, and it was such a hit.
Seriously, if you like bacon, potatoes and cheese, give this one a try.
