directions

  • In a large heavy bottomed stock pot, cook the bacon until just crispy.
  • Add in the onion, celery, carrots, and garlic.  Cook until the vegetables are soft. About 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Stir in the flour into the vegetable mixture.  Then very slowly add the chicken stock.  It works best to add a few tablespoons at a time, whisking throughout in between. This should take about two minutes at the most.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil and add in the potatoes.  Turn down the heat to a simmer, stirring regularly, and cook until the potatoes are fork tender. About 20 to 30 minutes. Make sure the heat is very low. If it is too high, too much of the liquid will evaporate.
  • Stir in the milk, yogurt and allow the milk to cook through, about 1 to 2 minutes.  Top with cheddar cheese, bacon, and diced green onions. Enjoy!
