4 large Potatoes or 8 smaller ones
1 lb. bacon
2 onions, diced
1 cup Flour
1 gallon whole milk
1 Tablespoon ground black pepper
(Could use Knox's Yummy Chicken Dry Rub or whatever you like in your soup)
1 Tablespoon Salt
Peel and chop potatoes into soup size chunks and boil until they just get tender, about 10 minutes, in salted water, drain and set aside.
In a large soup pot cook bacon over medium heat until crisp and crumble or cut up first and cook, whatever floats your boat. DO NOT DRAIN.
Add onion and cook until onion begins to brown. Stir in flour and stir and allow to cook for a couple minutes. Begin adding milk while constantly stirring. Add some milk, stir, add some milk, stir, repeat until milk is in there, all of it. Add salt and pepper and allow to simmer for about 15 more minutes.
