Introduction

Finger wiggling scrumptious!

Packed with Vitamin C.

This recipe is higher in fat content than others, so this would be a "cheat" day, or you can substitute turkey bacon bits and non-fat half and half. (If you use turkey bacon, you will have to use a dash of oil for your vegetables)
This is my favorite winter meal - and even on hot days I will take a bowl of this soup!

Ingredients

    1 lb bacon, diced
    1 large sweet onion
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    1 teaspoon salt
    6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1 tablespoon dried basil
    6 cups chicken broth
    6 large baked potatoes, peeled and cubed
    2 cups half and half
    1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
    3 cups shredded cheese

Directions

In a large saucepan, cook bacon until crisp. (Stir constantly to avoid burning/sticking) Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons of the drippings. Set bacon aside.
Saute onion, bell peppers, and garlic in the drippings until tender. Add the flour, basil, salt, and pepper. Stir until it resembles a thick paste.
Gradually add broth. Bring to boil. Boil and stir for 2 minutes. Add the potatoes, cream and hot pepper sauce. Heat through, but do not boil. Garnish with a sprinkling of bacon and cheese to taste.

Makes approximately 16 2-cup servings.

NOTE : the fat content varies largely depending on how much cheese and bacon you use. The recipe calculator divided the total amount of cheese and bacon by 1/16.
