Green Bean, Potato, and Bacon Soup is like a medley of your favorite sides, in soup form. So good!




  1. In a large pot or Dutch oven, cook bacon pieces until slightly crispy. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and drain excess fat, but don’t wipe the bottom clean.
  2. Add onion to the pot and sauté in bacon drippings until soft.
  3. While the bacon and onions are cooking, boil the potatoes until tender. Drain water and slightly mash. Set aside.
  4. Steam green beans until slightly tender. Set aside.
  5. When the beans and potatoes are done, add the bacon back in the pot, add green beans and mashed potatoes, and cover with the milk and cream. Stir to combine.
  6. Warm for a bit until heated through, taking care not to boil.
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Serve hot, garnishing each bowl with snipped chives, if desired.
