  • 10 medium potatoes cubed into bite-size pieces
  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • ½ bunch green onion sliced and separate greens from whites
  • 4 T oil
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 8 oz block cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 pkg bacon pieces or bits
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large dutch oven heat oil to medium-high. Add potatoes and fry flipping occasionally with a spatula. Cover between flipping to allow the potatoes to cook faster. About halfway through frying add yellow onion and the white part of the green onions. Continue to fry until the potatoes are soft and the onions are translucent.
  • Add broth, milk, cheese, bacon, green part of onions, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Lower heat to medium-low and allow to simmer 20 to 30 minutes.


NOTE: If you know that the potatoes will stick to the bottom of your dutch oven, fry the potatoes in a separate skillet then add to the dutch oven when potatoes are cooked.
