Wild Rice Soup

Note: This is a great soup to make after the big meals of Thanksgiving when you are stuffed and couldn't bear to look at another BIG meal. This is perfect to eat with a simple turkey sandwich.

Wild Rice Soup

3 cups chicken stock
2 potatoes, peeled and diced
9 slices bacon in small pieces
1 medium onion, chopped
1 1/2 cup cooked wild rice
2 pints half & half
8 oz. American cheese, shredded
salt and pepper to taste
chopped green onion to garnish

Cook potatoes in chicken stock until tender. Puree in food processor. Sautee bacon, add onion and cook until tender. Combine bacon mixture with wild rice in saucepan. Add half and half, potato puree and cheese and heat gently, stirring until cheese melts. Add salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with chopped green onions.

Note: Three cans of cream of potato soup can be substituted for potato-chicken stock puree.
