2 T shortening
2 T flour
1 1/2 c. milk
3 medium or 4 small potatoes, cubed to 1/2 in.
3 strips of bacon, crumbled
1. Melt shortening. Add flour and stir, allowing to brown slightly.
2. Add milk and bring to a boil. Add potatoes and lower heat to simmering. Add salt, pepper, and onion powder to taste. Stir often so it doesn't burn on the bottom. Simmer for 20 min.
3. When potatoes are soft ladle into bowls. Top with cheese and bacon. Makes 3-4 meal-sized servings.
