Bacon Cheddar Potato Soup

This is another Vita-mix recipe and it's delicious! I love the flavors the rosemary and dill bring into the soup. It's hearty and yet still healthy. I substituted ham for the bacon as that's what I had in the freezer.

Yield: 4 cups

Speed: Variable to High to Variable
Time: 4 minutes

2 cups (480 ml) skim milk
2 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, baked
1/3 cup (40 g) shredded, low fat cheddar cheese
1/4 small onion, sautéed
1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 ounces (55 g) turkey bacon, cooked, crumbled
1. Place milk, one potato, cheese, onion, dill weed, rosemary and salt into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
2. Select Variable 1.
3. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
4. Blend for 4 minutes or until heavy steam escapes from the vented lid.
5. Reduce speed to Variable 3.
6. Remove the lid plug. Drop in remaining potato and bacon. Blend for an additional 10 seconds, until chopped.
