    1 cup green onions

Tips

This is based on a double batch. I always freeze the left overs for later since it takes so long to make.


Directions

Wash potatoes and prick several times with a fork. Bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour or until done. Let cool. Peel potatoes and cut into cubes. Throw away the skins. In a large stock pot pour in all the chicken broth and turn on Medium heat turn down if it begins to boil. Cook bacon until crisp and remove from pan and crumble but save the drippings.Cook onion in bacon drippings stirring contantly until tender. Add flour to onion mixture stirring well. Cook 1 minute stirring constantly. Gradually add onion mixture to chicken broth. Use wisk to break up lumps. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until mixture is thick and bubbly. Stir in potatoes, half and half, bacon crumbles and the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a simmer and cook uncovered for 10 minutes stirring occasionally (DO NOT BOIL). Stir in cheese and green onions. Cook until cheese is completely melted stirring often.

  • I made this for a church event with cornbread muffins and it was a hit!! It was worth the work! I substituted real bacon pieces (for salad) instead of frying bacon and it was awesome!! Will definitely make this again! - 11/2/12
