    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400ºF.
    2. 2
      Wrap entire garlic bulb tightly in foil; place garlic and potatoes in oven. (You do not need to put them on a pan; they can go right on an oven rack.).
    3. 3
      Bake garlic until soft when squeezed, about 45 minutes; remove from oven and let cool. Continue baking potatoes until tender when pierced, about 15 minutes more; let potatoes stand until cool enough to handle.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, about 6 minutes.
    5. 5
      Place bacon on paper towels to drain off any fat; chop bacon.
    6. 6
      Unwrap garlic and squeeze pulp from bulb with hands into a large saucepan.
    7. 7
      Peel potatoes and add to saucepan; mash with a potato masher until smooth.
    8. 8
      Gradually stir in broth, thyme, salt and pepper until blended; place saucepan over medium heat and cook until hot, stirring occasionally, about 5 to 10 minutes.
    9. 9
      Spoon about 1 1/3 cups of soup into each of 6 soup bowls.
    10. 10
      Top each with 1 tablespoon of sour cream, 1 tablespoon of cheese, 1 rounded tablespoon of bacon and 1 tablespoon of scallions.

      Very nice soup!! My daughter and I ate it for lunch 2 days in a row. Of course by the second day the flavors had really blended together nicely. I also drizzled the garlic bulb with a small amount of olive oil and instead of peeling the potoatoes, just cut them in half and scooped out the potato that way. I also diced a small onion and sliced some mushrooms and sauteed them in a pan with cooking spray and added them for more flavor. Thanks for sharing!

      Excellent soup! The toppings really make it, especially the bacon. Actually I used low fat bacon bits from Whole Foods. I also added some olive oil on the garlic while roasting it, and skipped peeling the potatoes (personal preference). Served 4 for us, an an entree by itself. Yum!

      Great find if you enjoy potato soup: a potato soup recipe which is so low in fat! A wonderful blend of flavours in this soup. I made this pretty much to the recipe, except for adding 2 leeks pan-fried in the bacon fat and about a teaspoon of butter in a non-stick pan and I omitted the low-fat cheddar cheese. Just cannot stand low-fat cheese, so I always either use regular cheese or simply omit it. I also used regular (middle rashers) bacon, as I've never used turkey bacon - nor seen it for sale. This soup was certainly flavoursome enough with the reduced-fat sour cream and without the cheese! And didn't taste like a low-fat recipe. Thank you for sharing it, Lainey6605!
