Slice the bacon strips in half length-wise and dice into bite size portions. Place the bacon, butter, salt and garlic in a soup pot on low heat. And let the bacon lightly fry for 5-7 minutes.
Add 1/2 qt heavy cream and 1 qt chicken broth. Increase the heat to medium and once it starts to simmer add in the UNBAKED peeled and diced potatoes.
Simmer for about 25 minutes on medium heat until reduced by half.
Add the chives, BAKED peeled and diced potatoes, and remaining 1/2 qt of heavy cream.
Simmer for an additional 20 minutes.
Remove from heat and slowly add the shredded cheddar while stirring constantly.

TheSkoomaCatMade this recipe with some nice home-made bread bowls with a salad on the side. Wonderful soup!1y ago
LindapetersenI have made this several times over the last year. Sometimes I use ham instead of bacon. And recently I have used my mixer to cream the potato soup after adding the 2nd round of potatoes. I much prefer it creamy. It's still very hearty and delicious!!1y ago
