- Add milk and flour mixture and stir well with bacon grease. Increase heat to medium low, stirring constantly until thick and creamy.
- When potatoes are tender, add thickening, salt and pepper. Stir thoroughly to incorporate all ingredients, making soup rich and creamy. Remove from heat, cover and let sit for 10 minutes.
- Options: Ladle soup into serving bowl and add desired amount of cheese. Also good served with Cheese It or Goldfish crackers.
- Variations: Use ham or polish sausage in place of bacon (use 2 T butter in place of bacon grease.)
