  • 1 onion, chopped, 1 cup
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/4 t. pepper

In pot cook bacon over medium high heat until crisp, 6-8 minutes; drain on paper towels. Crumble; reserve. To fat in pot add onion, salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender. Add broth. Increase heat to high; bring to boil, scraping up browned bits from bottom. Reduce heat to medium; stir in milk, dry potato mix, and bacon. Simmer 5 minutes; remove from heat.
