I doubled this to make a big soup pot of it, and it was good, but definitely take heed about the amount of potato flakes. I used half of what I should have for the doubled recipe and it was almost as thick as mashed potatoes (spoon stood up by itself). I don't see how the cornstarch could be needed along with flakes, although I used both. I ended up adding an extra 2 CUPS! of water and NO half and half to cut down the thickness, which didn't work. It was still good though! Other than far fewer flakes next time, I'd also add garlic (my flakes were garlic flavored) and keep the bacon tender as I could have lived without the crunch.
