Dad's Potato Soup Recipe Revamped

Dad used to make this wonderful potato soup when we were kids. It only had 6 ingredients; potatoes, smokey bacon, water, milk, salt, pepper. Some of the best dishes are so simple. Today I made Dad's potato soup with two more ingredients added. It's just as good as the original recipe, just different.
Peel, roughly chop, boil potatoes until tender.

Chop mushrooms and green onions in uniform size.
Cook and drain your smokey bacon of choice. I like to cook a whole pound and use some for BLT sandwiches to go with the potato soup.
Broil your mushroom and onions until roasted nicely.
Now pour off excess water in the potatoes, mash potatoes in boiling pot, add milk, veges, s & p. Bring to simmer, stirring frequently, serve.
I used 2% milk but for a more creamier soup you may use whole milk or add some half & half. There are no measurements in this recipe because Dad never used any. Add each ingredient to your liking. Make your own variation, it's easy! This soup, like all, freezes well so don't be afraid to make a big batch and 'Put some by'.
