Rene’s Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Many moons ago, I was in a Bunco group. 

If you don’t know about Bunco, let me tell you.

It’s a dice game.  It doesn’t take a lot of thought.   

It’s mostly an excuse to get out of the house and see your girls…

We met once a month and had a blast! 

If it was your turn to host, you were expected to provide a little nourishment.

Well, this recipe came from my long-time friend, Rene who served this one time. 

I fell in love with it and continue to make it to this day.

If you prefer a meatless version, just leave out the bacon.  But really.  Who would??

Here you go.
