1 tablespoon of butter

1 cup of milk

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

3 cloves of garlic

2 teaspoons of salt

2 tablespoons of dried onion

3 dashes of white pepper; 1 dash of black pepper

(optional) Zion's Farm Breakfast Sausage

1) Cook 3-4 slices of bacon on medium-high heat in frying pan until rendered and crispy. Place on plate with paper towel and set aside.

2) Reserve 1 tablespoon of bacon grease and add to Instant Pot with 1 tablespoon of butter.

3) Finely chop 3 cloves of garlic and add to Instant Pot along with 3 cups of chicken broth, 1 can of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup, salt, dried onion, and your white/black peppers.

4.) Peel your potatoes and cube into chunks; add to Instant Pot and do a rough mix to incorporate all ingredients.

5) Cook in Instant Pot on normal high pressure for 10 minutes with vent valve set to "seal."

6) After 10 minutes do a quick release on the valve. In separate bowl whisk together a slurry of milk and flour.

7) Set Instant Pot to "saute" and add slurry to mixture in pot. Cook 4-5 minutes until thickens. Use immersion blender to puree for fine or small potato chunks.

8) Add chopped bacon pieces to pot along with cheddar cheese to create a smooth, rich soup mixture. For added flavor, cook up some Zion's Farm Breakfast Sausage into crumbles and sprinkle on top of soup!
