My own concoction. This is my DD favorite soup. We love to eat it on Halloween night with Lots of Sourdough garlic toast. Yum!

  1. In a large dutch oven, put potatoes, chicken broth (enough to cover potatoes), onion powder, garlic and herb seasoning, and chicken bouillon.
  2. Bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer 10 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. Slowly stir in Monterey jack cheese until melted.
  6. Add cooked bacon; stir in half and half.
  7. (I usually just sprinkle bacon on individual bowls of soup. That way it stays crunchy!).
  8. Thicken to desired consistency with instant mashed potatoes.
  9. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Garnish with cheddar cheese and chopped green onions (optional).
