Baked Potato Soup using low-fat sour cream and cheddar cheese

Recipe Ingredients for Baked Potato Soup

1 garlic clove(s), large, 1/4-inch-slice cut off top
3 pound potato(es), rinsed, pierced with a fork (about 6 large baking potatoes)
6 slice uncooked turkey bacon
4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 tbsp thyme, fresh, chopped
1/2 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
6 tbsp reduced-fat sour cream
6 tbsp low-fat cheddar cheese
6 tbsp scallion(s), sliced

Recipe Directions for Baked Potato Soup

  1. ? Preheat oven to 400F. Wrap entire garlic bulb tightly in foil; place garlic and potatoes in oven. (You do not need to put them on a pan; they can go right on an oven rack.)

  2. ? Bake garlic until soft when squeezed, about 45 minutes; remove from oven and let cool. Continue baking potatoes until tender when pierced, about 15 minutes more; let potatoes stand until cool enough to handle.

  3. ? Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, about 6 minutes. Place bacon on paper towels to drain off any fat; chop bacon.

  4. ? Unwrap garlic and squeeze pulp from bulb with hands into a large saucepan. Peel potatoes and add to saucepan; mash with a potato masher until smooth. Gradually stir in broth, thyme, salt and pepper until blended; place saucepan over medium heat and cook until hot, stirring occasionally, about 5 to 10 minutes.

  5. ? Spoon about 1 1/3 cups of soup into each of 6 soup bowls. Top each with 1 tablespoon of sour cream, 1 tablespoon of cheese, 1 rounded tablespoon of bacon and 1 tablespoon of scallions. Grind fresh pepper over top if desired.
