1 medium potato for each member of your family, plus 1 extra
chicken broth, about a cup
milk, about 2-3 cups
butter, 1-2 tablespoons
salt and pepper
Cut potatoes in to chunks and cook in water and chicken broth until soft. While potatoes are cooking, cut bacon in to small pieces with kitchen shears and cook until crispy. Save bacon grease. Drain potatoes almost all the way and add some of the bacon grease, milk, butter, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook until heated through and thickened. Top with cheese, bacon, and sour cream.
I apologize for the picture quality. We did not have a single AA battery in the house for my camera so I grabbed my iPhone real quick.
