The one thing that kept sounding amazing during my pregnancy was anything made with potatoes. Many potato recipes got pinned during the last 9 months and I am excited to share this creamy potato bacon soup recipe that I came up with. Despite sounding like a super heavy soup, it is actually quite nutritious.

Instead of being made with heavy cream, it uses 1% milk. It also uses plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream for more protein and less fat. It uses a few vegetables for a boost of nutrients and fiber (and color!). You can skip the bacon if you like or use turkey bacon or turkey sausage.

The weather here in Michigan was unbelievably warm for awhile in February and then we had a super cold March so I started to want warm winter comfort foods again and this soup was created.

I couldn't decide whether to call this soup a cheesy potato soup, potato and cheddar soup or something similar. There are so many names for it and either way, it is super delicious! Serve with a salad and a piece of toasted garlic bread and you will have the most delicious meal.
