  • Place in the red potatoes and toss all to coat nicely.
  • Pour in around 50 ounces of water and add 6 normal sized chicken bouillon cubes
  • Cook to a boiling point and reduce the heat and cook until the red potatoes are tender. It should take around 10 minutes more.
  • Mash down some of the potatoes using a potato masher, but leave some chunks.
  • Melt down the butter in another bowl and whisk in the flour slowly. Cook for 60 seconds on medium heat.
  • Add two cups of milk, very slowly, until thickened enough. The milk used should be at room temperature. Season with salt and pepper.
  • For the potatoes: add in 2 more cups of milk, cream mixture, sour cream, green onions or chives, 16 ounces of cheese and one half of previously cooked bacon.
  • Cook and stir slowly, until the cheese is melted nicely.
