* Fry bacon till semi-crisp then add the onion. Sauté over medium high heat stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Just when the onion begin to caramelize add the garlic. Sauté for 5 minutes. Bacon should be well done and the onions and garlic caramelized.
* Add the potatoes, then pour over them the beef broth and milk. Stir well then add the rosemary, sea salt and black pepper. Simmer about 15 minutes stirring frequently to avoid scorching.
* Once the potatoes are semi-tender add the sour cream and parsley. Continue to simmer till the potatoes are done and the broth has become thick and creamy. Lightly mash to thicken the broth. Serve immediately.
This is great when paired with an herby artisan bread and white wine.
