Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays

I recently came across Blessed With Grace while chatting on twitter. The blog owner Lisa sponsors a blog carnival every Tuesday called "Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays" where bloggers share their favorite recipes every Tuesday and they are all linked from her site. I am so excited to participate in this carnival each week. I have been sharing recipes but now my readers will know to come each Tuesday for my new recipe. If you are interested in participating just go to Blessed With Grace and sign up!

Here is today's recipe ~ great for the really cold days we have coming up this week!

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

8 strips of bacon ~ fried and crumbled
1 medium onion ~ chopped
2/3 cup flour
6 cups chicken broth
4 cups potatoes ~ cook and mash just enough to break them up, leave lumpy (canned potatoes work well)
2 cups half & half
1 1/2 tsp each of garlic powder, salt, pepper and hot sauce
1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese

~Brown onion in a few tablespoons of the bacon grease until lightly brown
~Stir in flour~Add broth and whisk well while adding to flour mixture
~Add bacon (you may want to save some for topping), potatoes, spices and half & half.
~Let thicken while stirring
~Add cheese (you may want to save some for topping.

Serve topped with additional cheese and bacon if you like.
