Farm to Market’s Spicy New Bread (and Two Soups to Enjoy It With)

Chili Cheese Sourdough is on shelves now, and Sasha’s Baking Co. is sharing two delicious soup recipes to enjoy alongside it.

Farm to Market Bread Co. just released a limited edition run of Chile Cheese Sourdough, available in select Kansas City grocery stores now through Feb. 7, 2016. To make the bread, Farm to Market bakes fresh jalapenos and cheddar cheese into its authentic San Francisco sourdough. The specialty bread, a favorite, is released annually to coincide with football season and is ideal for tailgates and fall menus.

Butter the outside of two slices to spice up your traditional grilled cheese, or serve the bread with one of these tasty seasonal soups from Sasha’s Baking Co.

Baked Potato Soup

Serves 8

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 8 slices thick cut bacon, cut into lardons
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 quart whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 pounds russet potatoes peeled and cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Finley chopped green onions garnish
  • Olive oil

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 °F. Place 1 pound of the diced potatoes on a sheet tray and drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 30 minutes or until potatoes are cooked. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook stirring occasionally until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Add the onions to the bacon fat and sauté until translucent. Increase the heat to high and add the warmed chicken stock. Add milk, salt, pepper, and potatoes. Stir to combine and simmer on medium low heat until the potatoes are cooked through.

Slightly cool the soup and in batches puree in a blender. Return soup to the pot and add roasted potatoes, half of the bacon and half of the cheddar cheese. Heat until warmed and garnish with remaining cheddar cheese, bacon, and green onions. Serve with slices of Chili Cheese Bread or hollow out the inside of the loaf and use it as a bread bowl!
