Directions

In a heavy bottomed soup pot, fry potato skins in bacon fat until crisp, remove and set aside with bacon. Add onion to bacon fat and cook over medium heat until golden, about 6 minutes. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Whisk in broth and cream, thyme and potatoes. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce to simmer and cover. Cook until potatoes are tender, about 7-10 minutes. Remove thyme and transfer to food processor, reserving 2 cups potatoes. Add bread and blend until smooth. Return to pot and mix in cheese and sour cream, return reserved potatoes to pot, season with pepper and salt if necessary. Serve garnished with bacon, potato skins, sour cream, cheese and scallions.
