1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
3 Tbs flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp basil
1/2 t pepper
3 C chicken broth
2 large baked potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 C half and half
1/2 t hot pepper sauce

1. In a large saucepan, cook bacon until crisp. Drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. Set bacon aside. Saute onion and garlic in the drippings until tender. Stir in flour, salt, basil and pepper, mix well. Gradually add broth. Bring to a boil; boil and stir for two minutes. Add potatoes, cream and hot pepper sauce. Heat through but do not boil. Garnish with bacon, cheese .
