Optional: 2 or 3 smoked garlic kielbasa (quartered slices), or any other sausage, according to taste
Boil potatoes in their skin, let cool. Fry diced bacon in 2 tablespoon olive oil until almost crisp, add diced onion, stir about 2 minutes, add diced garlic, stir another 10 seconds; add flour, stir until all grease has been absorbed and the flour starts to brown.
Add the stock, stir up any sticking flour, let slow-simmer for 20 minutes. Add the kielbasa, if using, to the bechamel, let simmer another 5 minutes. Temper the sour cream with some of the bechamel, add to the pot.
