1. Fry the bacon and then put in food processor or chop up (so it appears crumbled). When finished, put the bacon aside in a small bowl for later and leave the bacon grease in pan.
2. Peel potatoes, onions and celery and chop up. Put into a large pan. Pour the leftover bacon grease from the bacon over the chopped vegetables.
3. Fill the pan with 1- 1 1/2 inches of water above the potatoes and put on high heat bringing to a rapid boil.
4. Mix olive oil and flour in a separate skillet and bring to a boil, then take off heat.
5. Once potatoes are soft, add the milk to the olive oil and flour mixture and allow this to come to a boil as well.
6. Stir in the milk/oil/flour mixture into the large soup pot (that already has the vegetables in it)
7. Add the shredded cheese and Parmesan cheese to the pot then add the crumbled bacon.
8. Allow this to come to a boil, then add the hot sauce and garlic salt. (Alter the garlic salt/ hot sauce as you desire)
Alter the hot sauce and garlic sauce as desired to increase the salty or spiciness of the soup. May substitute butter for the olive oil, but use 2 tablespoons of butter instead of 1 1/2.
