12 oz thick cut bacon
1 medium white onion –diced
½ cup diced fresh chives
6 Cups Chicken or Vegetable Broth
12 oz Frozen Petite Broccoli Florets
1 cup Sour Cream
2 Pints Half and half
2 lbs Russet potatoes, baked and diced
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 Tbsp Butter
Instant Mashed Potatoes


Place bacon on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake on 400 degrees F until brown and crispy. Remove from oven once to flip. Remove from oven, place in kitchen paper and allow to drain.


Place onions and chives in a heavy bottom soup pot and sauté in Extra Virgin Olive Oil until transparent.


Add 4 cups of broth to the onions. Salt and pepper to taste and bring to a Boil.



Stir in Potatoes and broccoli and bring back to a boil.


Add Half and Half as well as Sour Cream and butter. Cook together until Broccoli is tender. 15-20 minutes.
Add Cheese and stir until melted.


Thicken with Instant Mashed Potatoes by adding ½ cup at a time, stirring in and allowing to cook for 5 minutes before adding more, as instant potatoes will swell and thicken the soup when cooked.


Top with Fresh chives, Bacon, sour cream and Enjoy 🙂



    1. It got sooooooooooo yummy and Ill tell you a “secret” If you want to make it even quicker, just use a bag of frozen cubed hash browns…it gets just as good and takes much less time.
