    Pagan's Note:

    This is one of those Old World family favorites my dear Wife's family handed down. We hope you enjoy it. The alternate ingredients are for those without dietary concerns. Also, if the potatoes are soaked free of the starch, the carbs will be greatly reduced from the Nutritional Facts' Information.

    • 6 slices fat-free turkey bacon, may use 10 slices bacon

    • 7 cups skim milk, may use 7 cups milk
    • 4 large potatoes, soaked the night before, drained and rinsed, boiled, peeled and cubed
    • 3 green onions, minced
    • 1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 1 teaspoon white pepper, finely ground
    • 1 cup fat free sour cream
    • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage

      In a large pot, brown your bacon, drain the grease, crumble, and set aside.
    2. 2

      For the most part this recipe was made as directed, although I cut the recipe in half, didn't peel the potatoes, & cubed them small! Used the fat-free items, the whole wheat flour, skim milk & potato flakes & had A GREAT, TASTY SOUP! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the Diabetes Awareness Month Tag Game]
