Recipe by Chef on the coast

I love baked potatoes so was delighted to come across this recipe in Taste of Home. It is very rich - but oh so good!

Hearty comfort food! Not quite as rich as I expected from the recipe, and the bacon garnish is essential -- if you don't use it, you will probably want more salt and pepper. Constant stirring is needed while heating to keep it from thickening unevenly. I had misgivings about adding the cold potatoes after the heat was off, but that worked well and the warmth distributed in a minute or two. Made for OZ/NZ Swap May 2008.
