I made baked potato soup. I made it and people came to visit.
For the soup:
1 T bacon grease
1 onion, chopped
2 T garlic
5 baked potatoes, mashed with a fork
2 32 ounce cartons of chicken broth
For the garnishes
2 chopped scallions
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Chopped crispy cooked bacon
Saute the onions and garlic in the bacon grease until the onions are translucent. Add the potatoes and broth. Simmer until the soup is thickened. Serve with the garnishes you like.
