Calling All Superheroes

Today is my Dad's birthday.  He is a superhero in my eyes.  He has worked hard all his life and for the past (almost 35 years) to support Mom and us kids when we were at home.  I saw this recipe and thought of all the warm memories from home.  I love you Dad! Happy Birthday too!

Cheeseburger Soup aka Super Hero Soup
adapted from:

1/2lb ground beef
3/4 cup onion, diced small
1/4lb bacon (peppered is exceptional), cooked and crumbled
3 cups chicken stock
2 cups milk with 2 heaping tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup shredded hashbrown potatoes, thawed
1pkg instant potato flakes (like this)
2 1/2cups cheese, shredded

Brown beef with onion, until the onions are softened and translucent. Stir in bacon pieces and hashbrowns.  Sprinkle with potato flakes. Stir in stock. Let thicken slightly. Add milk/cornstarch mixture until really thick and bubbly.  Remove from heat; fold in cheese.  Serve immediately
