I made this last night and my kids said it tasted just like my famous grits!!  Which is a compliment for all you non southerners out there.  They wanted me to make it for them for breakfast too! lol

2 center cut bacon slices (uncooked), cut into 1/2 inch pieces

3/4 cup chopped onion (1 small)

4 cups frozen Southern style hash brown potatoes (such as Ore-Ida)

1 can fat free chicken broth

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

1 cup lowfat milk

2 Tbsp chopped green onions

1/2 cup reduced fat shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese

Cook bacon in a large saucepan over medium heat 2 minutes, stirring frequently; add onion.  Cook, stirring frequently, 5 minutes or until bacon is crisp.

Add potatoes to bacon mixture, stirring to coat with bacon drippings.  Add broth, salt, and pepper; cover and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring frequently.  Boil 6 minutes, stirring frequently.  Mash potatoes, with a masher until soup is slightly thick.  Stir in milk.  Cook, stirring constantly, 1 minutes or until thoroughly heated; remove from heat.  Ladle soup into bowls; sprinkle evenly with green onions and cheese.
