Nicole's Story

We found this gem in a Quick Cooking magazine -- probably a "what to do with leftover baked potatoes" section. Either way, it's tasty and hearty!


bacon strips
1 small
onion, chopped
1 clove
garlic, minced
3 Tbsp
1 tsp
1 tsp
dried basil
1/2 tsp
3 c
chicken broth
2 large
potatoes, baked, peeled, cubed
1 c
half and half
1/2 tsp
hot pepper sauce
shredded cheddar cheese
minced fresh parsley

Directions Step-By-Step

Fry bacon. Reserve 1 tbsp bacon drippings. Crumble. Saute onion and garlic in the bacon drippings until tender. Stir in flour, salt, basil, and pepper; mix well. Gradually add broth. Bring to a boil; boil and stir for 2 minutes. Add the potatoes, cream and hot pepper sauce; heat through but do not boil. Garnish with bacon, cheese, and parsley.
