Baked Potato Soup

I'm back! Between the holidays and 10 days in Costa Rica, I hadn't posted in quite some time. But here I am with a wonderful, low fat, soup recipe.

One medium bulb of garlic (top trimmed off)
6 large baking potatoes
4.5 cups chicken broth
1/2 tsp pepper (I'd use less)
mix-ins: fat free sour cream, turkey bacon, green onion or chives, low fat/fat free shredded cheddar cheese

wrap garlic in foil & pierce potatoes once with a fork
place garlic and potatoes on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes
remove garlic and let cool, bake potatoes for 15 minutes longer or until tender

Squeeze garlic bulb into soup pot, peel 3 of the hot potatoes and add to garlic, mashing until smooth

slowly at chicken broth and pepper and heat through

take remaining three potatoes and cube, leaving peeling on

add to soup and heat through

serve with bacon, sour cream, chives/green onions and cheddar cheese
