Rainy Day Baked Potato Soup

Here's a yummy, easy Baked Potato Soup recipe. Diane gave it to me, and she got it from Pat Duncan.

3 baking potatoes (or five or six red potatoes--my preference)
5 strips of bacon
2 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup instant mashed potatoes (I use the loaded baked potato mix for a little extra flavor)
1 stick butter
1/2 cup flour
3 cups milk
Salt, pepper, Garlic salt
Add-Ins: Cheese, chives

Bake potatoes in microwave or oven. Meanwhile, fry bacon crisp and mix broth and potato mix. Melt butter in large soup pot (while it's melting, cut baked potatoes into chunks) , add flour. Then add milk. Stir frequently so this is a smooth sauce. Add potatoes and broth mixture. Add desired seasonings. Let simmer for 20 minutes or so. Serve it up with cheese on top!
