Grandma Alice's Potato Soup

You are probably thinking I'm nuts for making soup in the middle of Summer living in Az., but I must say it wasn't too bad. I was craving this so I went for it. I loved this soup when I had it for the first time at home in Calgary a couple years ago. Nan made it for the whole family and she said it was Grandma Alice's. Love it!

1 small white onion
4 large potatoes cleaned, and diced
1 can of Corn
6-7 slices of Bacon cooked and diced
Chicken boullion cube
1 can Evaporated milk

Saute the onion and bacon together in a frying pan. Do not drain. Add the diced potatoes and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook for 10-15 minutes until the potatoes are soft. REduce your heat and add the chicken flavoring, corn, S&P at this time. You can add any other seasonings. I added diced parsley. Add in your can of Evaporated milk along with 1/4 C. flour mixed and shaken up with 1 C. water. We topped with shredded Chedder cheese and had breadsticks on the side. So good!


  1. do you think it would work with the reduced fat evap milk?

  2. Shaunee, I totally think it would work. I used Turkey bacon too. It's actually a semi healthy dish!
