My Famous Potato Soup

5 lbs potatoes, peeled and diced
1 lb bacon
1 onion diced
4 cloves garlic
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups shredded cheddar
1 cup milk
Green onions

In a large soup pot fry the bacon with the onion and garlic.  When bacon is crispy remove strips and chop up.  Leaving the grease in the pot add the potatoes and enough chicken broth to cover the potatoes to the top.  Boil until the potatoes are tender but not mushy.  Reduce heat to low, stir in milk, cheddar, and about ¾ of the bacon.  Let simmer until the cheese is melted.  If the soup is too thick add more milk or chicken broth, if it is too thin add some unflavored potato flakes slowly until it is the consistenicy that you want.  I usually add some pepper also, but the bacon and cheese should make it salty enough.  Top with cheese, bacon, and green onions to serve.

This is super fattening, but also extremely tasty.  Makes a great dish to take to winter get together or work pot luck.
