Prep Time:
20 Minutes
Cook Time:
1 Hour 25 Minutes
Ready In:
1 Hour 45 Minutes


* 2 potatoes
* 3 tablespoons margarine
* 2 cups chopped white onion
* 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
* 4 cups chicken stock
* 2 cups water
* 1/4 cup cornstarch
* 1 1/2 cups instant mashed potato flakes
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
* 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
* 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
* 1 cup half-and-half
* 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
* 8 ounces bacon - cooked and crumbled
* 2 green onions, chopped


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Bake potatoes for 1 hour, or until done. Set aside to cool.
2. Melt butter in a 3 quart saucepan over medium heat.
Saute onions until tender and golden brown. Stir in flour, and cook 5 minutes
to make a roux. Pour in chicken stock and water. Add cornstarch and mashed
potato flakes. Season with salt, pepper, basil and thyme. Bring to a boil,
reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes.
3. Remove the skin from the cooled potatoes, and discard. Dice the

Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until thick. Spoon into bowls, and garnish
with shredded cheese, bacon and chopped green onion.
