8 slices bacon
1 cup diced yellow onions
2/3 cup flour
6 cups hot chicken stock
4 cups diced, peeled baked potatoes
2 cups heavy cream
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
1 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon red pepper sauce
1 1/2 teaspoon coarse black pepper
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup diced green onions, white part only
additional chopped bacon
grated cheese for garnish
chopped parsley for garnish


Fry bacon until crisp. Chop bacon and reserve drippings. Cook onions in remaining drippings over medium-high heat until transparent, about 3 minutes. Add flour, stirring to prevent lumps. Cook 3 - 5 minutes until mix just begins to run golden. Add chicken stock gradually, whisking to prevent lumps, until liquid thickens. Reduce heat to simmer and add potatoes, cream, chopped bacon, parsley, garlic, basil, salt, pepper sauce and black pepper. Simmer 10 minutes; DO NOT ALLOW TO BOIL. Add grated cheese and green onions.

Heat until cheese melts smoothly. Garnish each serving as desired with chopped bacon, grated cheese and chopped parsley.

I used cubed ham instead of bacon. Just as good. Added diced Carrot and celery as well. Then put in the crockpot - Dinner is served!

This was just the yummiest thing this family of five has tasted. I followed the recipe, except I omitted the green onions. It was just delicious. My very pick 3 year old had two bowls! Thanks for a great sunday night dinner. I paired this meal with a baby spinach salad and cdkitchen's red lobster biscuit recipe.

I would just like to say that yes it is great, but it takes longer than 30 minutes to make. Because it takes longer than 30 minutes to bake a potato. that being said it only takes 30 minutes after the potatoes are finished baking.

Quick and easy to make. Wonderfully seasoned and very satisfying. Can be easily served as a main course. This recipe pleased even my most finicky eaters.
