½ tsp. garlic salt
½ tsp. smoked paprika
2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. rosemary
1 tsp. dried parsley
  • Cook bacon in soup pot over medium-low heat; cook until just under crisp; remove bacon for now, but leave grease.
  • Add onions, carrots, and celery to bacon grease and cook on medium, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes; add potatoes, salt, and pepper and cook for a few more minutes.
  • Pour in broth and bring all to gentle boil; cook for about 15 minutes or until potatoes start to get tender.
  • Mix the flour and milk in a jar with a lid, shaking until well blended; pour into the soup and cook all 5 minutes.
  • Add in the seasonings, cooked bacon, and cream; let all simmer for about 30 minutes.
  • You can use an automatic pan stirring device (like a Uutensil StirrTime) to get everything well blended and keep things from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
