Loaded potato soup

This is from my favorite heber food place. the train place(dairy keen) cookbook. So GOOD Levi inhaled it.
The measurements were large so I just made up my own for my little family. Soup is very forgiving so do however much you want or need. You could lighten it up but the half and half make it so creamy and delectable.

Potatoes, diced mine were tiny so I used 5
1 onion, diced
1/2 lb bacon, diced
1/2 cup or so of chicken stock
2 c half and half
1 c milk I needed more liquid to loosen it up
White pepper
Cheddar cheese
Sour cream

Dice your potatoes
and either boil separately or in your soup. I boiled mine while the bacon was cooking and i was dicing everything else up.
Cook your bacon and save some grease. Cook onions in grease until translucent. Stir in a sprinkle of flour to make a roux. It should look like wet sand.
Add in broth to deglaze the pan. Stir in half and half and potatoes. Let thick (and potatoes cook if needed)
Season. It will probably need a good amount of salt cause of all the potatoes.
Serve with bacon bits, cheese and sour cream.
