Baked Potato Soup

**Made it again, here is the pic***

This recipe is from my friend Nicole. Easy to make and super good. We had it on Sunday for dinner but everyone was so excited to eat it that I couldn't sneak a picture in. I will next time.
Perfect for the changing season...

4 medium baked potatoes
2 slices bacon
1/2 c celery, chopped
1/2 c. green onions, thinly sliced
1 can 14 oz. chicken broth
1 garlic clove, pressed
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 c. sour cream
2 oz. shredded cheddar cheese

Remove skins from cooled baked potatoes. Coarsely mash with potato masher. Cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon to paper towel to drain; crumble and set aside. Discard all but 1/2 tsp drippings in pan. In a medium pot, put in chicken broth, mashed potatoes, celery, green onions, garlic, salt, pepper, and bacon drippings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 10 mins. Stir in sour cream and reserve bacon. Ladle into bowls and serve with cheese.
***Note in the recipe it says to add milk but it didn't have any measurements so I eyeballed it until it was the right thickness (not too thin- it's supposed to be a thick soup).

What kind of bread is that? I'd love to have bread bowls!
