Instructions

  • In an oiled pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, arrange bacon strips and cook for 2 minutes per piece or until golden brown. Remove the bacon from the pot and set it aside to cool, leaving the bacon fat in the pot.
  • Add diced onion and garlic to the reserved bacon fat and cook until fragrant (1-2 minutes).
  • Add the diced potatoes and stir. Sautee for 3 to 4 minutes. Return the bacon to the pot and stir in chicken stock and milk until the potatoes are covered. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • In a separate skillet over medium heat, whisk together butter and flour, stirring constantly for 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in yogurt, salt, pepper, and pepper.
  • Once thickened, add the yogurt mixture to the pot of potatoes and bacon. Add additional salt and pepper as needed.
  • Serve hot with optional toppings, and enjoy!
