We originally found this recipe in a Vitamix (www.surlatable.com) recipe book, we made a few changes like adding broth (chicken stock), squash and raw cheese. It is a big time comfort food and it is very rich and so tasty. I haven't tried this recipe with a regular blender so I can't guarantee how it will turn out as it is a fairly thick soup.
1 C whole milk (you can substitute for different milks)
1 C broth (chicken stock- http://kellythekitchenkop.com/part-2-how-to-make-delicious-and-nutritious-homemade-stock-bone-broth-from-chef-glenn-at-reds-on-the-river.html

1/2 t salt
1/2 t garlic granules
1/2 onion granules
2 oz. chopped bacon
Place milk, one potato, cheese, onion, and spices in the blender in order listed and secure lid. Turn machine on and quickly increase speed to variable 10 and then to high. Blend for 4 min. or until heavy steam escapes from the vented lid. reduce speed to variable 3. remove the lid plug and drop the remaining potato and bacon in and blend for 10 more sec. until chopped. Pour into bowls and enjoy!
