You Like Potato and I like Po-tah-toh

Potato Soup

Potato Soup

Everyone in the pan with some bacon fat.  When almost soft add ground turkey, sausage or beef (optional)
and cook until a fond starts to build in your dutch oven.
Add a heaping tablespoon of flour and stir around for about 2 minutes.
Add chicken stock and diced potatoes and cook until tender.  Be sure to stir in all the bits on the bottom of the pan.

When potatoes are soft, reseason with salt and lots of black pepper and take your potato masher or big spoon and smash up some of the potatoes until the soup thickens to your liking.  Lactose is not my friend, so I never add cream but you could at this point.  Otherwise, it's perfectly silky with a little dollop of sour cream, yogurt or a dash of almond milk.  I hit mine up with some chopped carrot greens and served with a big slice of sourdough bread.
