   until liquid thickens. Reduce heat to simmer and add
   potatoes, cream, chopped bacon, parsley, garlic,
   basil, salt, pepper sauce and black pepper.  Simmer 10
   minutes; DO NOT ALLOW TO BOIL. Add grated cheese and
   green onions.
   
   Heat until cheese melts smoothly. Garnish each serving
   as desired with chopped bacon, grated cheese and
   chopped parsley.
