Author Notes: I've always been a fan of potato soup. Here is my version. —Jason

- 1/2 cup onion, finely diced
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 6 tablespoons flour
- 6 cups whole milk
- 8 cups potatoes, peeled, diced in 1/2-inch cubes
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 ounces of each of the following, shredded: Cheddar, Mozzarella, Colby Jack, Provolone, Parmesan
- (All cooking is done on medium heat)
- In a large saucepan, cook bacon until crispy. Remove bacon to paper towel; leave grease in pan. Crumble bacon and save for later.
- Add butter to pan; deglaze, scraping all bits of bacon off bottom with a spatula.
- Add onions to butter/grease; cook 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally until brown (caramelized)
- Remove onions. but leave grease.
- Add flour, cook 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly.
- Add one cup of milk; deglaze.
