  • Combine the 3 cups half and half, garlic, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning in a large pot and bring to a simmer. Add potatoes and stir to combine. Cover and cook for 10-15 minutes until potatoes are tender.
  • Stir 3 tablespoons of flour into remaining 1/4 cup half and half. Stir into pot along with 1 cup cheese. Cover and cook another 5 minutes or so until thickened and cheese is completely melted. Stir in bacon.
