Cream of Roasted Potato Soup with Scallions and Hardwood Smoked Bacon

What's not to like about cream, potatoes, and bacon? This soup reminds me of a loaded baked potato. – Organic Valley Executive Chef Alex Brevik

Ingredients

3 tablespoons Organic Valley Cultured Butter, divided
2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup dry white wine or dry vermouth
4 cups Organic Valley Heavy Whipping Cream, divided
4 cups Organic Valley Whole Milk, divided
2 teaspoons salt or more to taste
5 strips Organic Prairie Hardwood Smoked Uncured Bacon, cooked crisp, crumbled
1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions (green onions)

Directions

1.) Heat oven to 350°F. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter; toss with potatoes on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes or until potatoes are barely tender.

2.) Heat remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and celery; sauté 5 minutes. Add garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Add white wine; simmer until wine is reduced to a glaze over the vegetables, about 5 minutes. Stir in 2 cups of the cream, 2 cups of the milk, salt and potatoes; bring just to a simmer over high heat.

3.) Reduce heat; simmer 10 to 12 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Stir in remaining cream and milk to cool soup. Puree soup in small batches in a blender until very smooth. At this point soup may be refrigerated up to 3 days or frozen up to 3 months.

4.) Reheat soup just to a simmer, stirring frequently. Ladle into shallow bowls; top with bacon and scallions.
