"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:

3 lb. - potatoes (6 large baking potatoes), rinsed & pierced with a fork
6 slices - Louis Rich Turkey Bacon
4 c. - reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 T. - thyme, freshly chopped

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 400. 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). 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 longer; let potatoes stand until cool enough to handle. Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, about 6 minutes. Remove bacon to paper towels to drain off any fat; chop bacon. 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. Spoon 1 & 1/3 cups of soup into each of 6 soup bowls. Top each with 1 T. of sour cream, 1 T. of cheese, 1 rounded T. of bacon and 1 T. of scallions. Grind fresh pepper over top if desired.
