How to Make It

Ladle soup into individual bowls; top with green onions and bacon bits.
This soup is fabulous. I baked 4 large potatoes and mashed them, as per the recipe. Then followed the recipe as stated except I added a little onion & garlic powder and I also boiled 4 med. potatoes, peeled and diced them, then added them to the soup. This gives it a little more substance. I also cooked a few more pieces of bacon than called for and added them to the body of the soup. Hubby & I both loved this soup and I can't wait to make it again. (Leftovers are even better).
