– cubed russet potatoes scrubbed and cut into 2-inch cubes – chicken broth - enough to cover the potatoes – bacon I used thick-cut


Put the potatoes in a large dutch oven or stock pot.  Cover with chicken stock and cook until tender.  Don’t drain.

Bake the bacon on a rack set on a rimmed  baking sheet lined with foil for 10 minutes in a 400° F oven. Remove all  of the bacon except for 4 slices and put it on a plate lined with a  paper towel.


Put the 4 slices of bacon back in the oven  for 2-4 minutes or until crispy. Once cooked allow them to drain on the  plate covered with the paper towel.


Cut the bacon that was cooked for 10 minutes in 1-inch pieces.  Chop the crispy bacon finer for garnishing the soup. Using a potato masher to coarsely smash the potatoes leaving large pieces.
