6 medium potatoes, peeled, cubed and cooked
½ lb. ground beef, cooked
2 chicken bouillon cubes
2 slices of bacon, fried and crumbled*
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp. onion powder or to taste
4 cups of milk
8 oz. American cheese (don’t grate, slices melt quickly)
¼ cup sour cream
Cook your potatoes in Dutch oven and drain. Add the rest of the ingredients, except the sour cream, and cook just until heated through. Make sure bouillon cubes are dissolved and cheese is melted. Do Not boil. Remove from heat and add sour cream.
*I always fry an extra piece or two of bacon when I cook it to keep in the freezer to use in recipes like this one.
