  • 1 1/2 kg meaty bacon bones
  • 1 carrot, sliced

  • 3 medium potatoes, sliced
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 200 ml cream
  • 2 cups water

  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

  1. In a soup pot heat oil over high heat then brown bacon bones. Once browned remove from pot then set it aside.
  2. Add garlic and onions then sauté in low heat until onions are soft.
  3. Add the celery and carrots, then bring heat to medium, cook for a minute.
  4. Place the bacon bones back, pour chicken stock and water, add the thyme and bring it to a boil. Lower heat then simmer for 1 hour.
  5. Add the potatoes then continue to simmer for 45 minutes.
  6. Pour flour mixed in water, bring heat to high then let the sauce thicken. Put heat to medium then pour cream, let is simmer for 15 more minutes.
  7. Since bacon bones are already salty, try to taste the soup first before seasoning it with salt. If still needed, add a bit of salt then season with freshly ground black pepper. Turn heat off then serve with some crusty bread.
