Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • While I always opt for red potatoes, any type of potato will work fine. 
  • If you want to add in even more vegetables, carrots are a great option. 
  • You can substitute the bacon for turkey bacon if you would like or omit it. 

Storage

Fridge

You will want to store your leftover soup in an airtight container in the fridge. This will last up to 4 days.

Freezer

This soup freezes really nicely. I like to freeze it in individual freezer-safe containers so I can grab them for quick lunches. To freeze, let the soup completely cool and then fill your containers leaving about 1 inch of room for the soup to expand. These will last in the freezer for up to 3 months. When you are ready to enjoy, remove them from the freezer and place them in the fridge overnight.

The easiest way to reheat your soup is in the microwave. Cook it for one minute and then stir. Continue cooking at 30-second intervals stirring in between until it reaches your desired temperature. 

Can I use canned corn instead of frozen corn?

Yes, you can substitute your frozen corn for canned corn. Use two cans of corn drained as a substitute.
