Potato Soup...Count me in!

Soup for lunch, soup for dinner was my husband's request the other day upon his stuffy, head cold sickness.

So, for lunch I warmed up Elton's yummy veggie soup.  Then I set out looking for a great potato soup know, along the lines of O'Charley's wonderful loaded potato soup.

Enter Pat's Cream of Potato Soup recipe.  YUM!  I did alter it a bit, and here's what I did...

First, you'll need:

bacon bits (or chopped up slices of bacon)
1 onion, chopped
6 cups chicken broth
3 sliced or chunked potatoes
1/2 cup instant mashed potato flakes
1 cup half and half

Then, you can:

1)  Brown your onion and bacon bits on medium heat.
2)  Start your chicken broth in a large pot.  Bring to a boil.
3)  Add onion, bacon, potatoes, and instant mashed potato flakes to the boiling broth.
4)  Bring heat down to a simmer and keep it on for 30 minutes.
5)  Pour in half and half.  Stir and serve!

**you also could top it with cheese, or put it in a bread bowl.

We were both fans.  So, Pat, whoever you are, if you are reading this...THANK YOU for the start to a great potato soup :)
