  • 1/2 cup butter divided
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 cups chopped up red potatoes
  • 1 lb chopped up cooked Wrights Brand Bacon Applewood Smoked Bacon
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 cups milk 2%
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream


  • Additional cooked Wrights Brand Bacon Applewood Smoked Bacon chopped fine
  • Parsley


  • Heat a heavy pot over medium heat, and add 1/4 cup butter, chopped onions, celery, and potatoes. Cook for 5 minutes.
  • I love my Staub Dutch Oven for this recipe because it just makes me feel like I am making a warm meal for my family that I can feel proud of. Staub is a heavy weight pot with a tight fitting lid that can be used in the oven as well as the stove top.
  • Add in Wrights Brand Bacon Applewood Smoked Bacon, stir well, and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, and pour out of pan into a bowl, set aside.
  • In heavy pot add 1/4 cup butter, and melt, add in 1/2 cup flour, and whisk to make a roux.
  • Add in heavy whipping cream and whisk until combined.
  • Add in milk, and whisk
  • Add in chicken stock, and whisk
  • Add garlic salt and black pepper. Bring to a simmer.
  • Whisk in cheddar cheese and sour cream.
  • Once well combined, add veggie and bacon mixture back into the pot, turn to a medium-low heat, cover, and let cook 25 minutes, stirring occasionally so the bottom does not stick or burn.
  • When potatoes are soft, serve, garnish with additional chopped up bacon, and parsley.
