- Add the butter to the bacon drippings, and over medium heat, cook the onions, celery, herbs, and nutmeg until well mixed. Cover, turn heat down to low, and cook slowly about fifteen minutes, until the onions are very soft.
- Add the potatoes and stock. Simmer 45 minutes, until the potatoes are falling apart.
- Purée the soup in batches, return to the pan and season to taste with salt and white pepper. Garnish with snipped chives and crumbled bacon.

Didn't have the celery but made it anyway. Simmering away on this first day of below freezing weather.
GLORIOUS GLORIOUS soup. Didn't have the chicken stock so I used broth and put 2 teaspoons chicken rub in. As good as this soup is with all the substitutions I made, the propper recipe must be awesome.

Made this again without modifications. Added picture. It has a slight green tint from the celery. My first thought was a light split-pea coloration.
Didn't add any garlic this time.
