Baked Potato Soup

Submitted by: Regina Woodley

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
onion powder
shredded cheese

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.

Here's some variations:
You can peel the potatoes or cube them with skins on. I usually do half and half.

Derek likes a little sour cream in his. Anything you like on a baked potato. Maybe steamed broccoli or cooked mushrooms.

If you like onions you could chop some and add them with the potatoes.
