(optional! You can skip the bacon if desired) 2. Add butter and onion to the bacon drippings (or just straight into the pot) and sauce until the onions become tender (4-5 mins) Add Garlic and Chicken Base 3. Add flour and stir constantly for 1 minute and then add milk, chicken stock, and peeled / diced potatoes. Bring this to a boil for about 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender. Break the potatoes up with your fork (they will cook down and mix into the soup. I like bits of potato in my soup but if you want it smoother, just mash them up a bit more) 4. Season to taste with salt, pepper , garlic, onion powder and adjust according to your 5. preference. Add 2/3 of your bacon to the soup and save some for garnishing your bowl. 6. Ladle your soup into your bowl and top with cheddar cheese, sour cream, bacon, and green onion. .
