    1. Fry bacon in a deep saucepan over medium heat until it is semi-crispy, about 5 minutes. Stir in potatoes and onion and cook until onion has softened, about 5 minutes. Mix in mushrooms, garlic and onion powder; cook and stir until mushrooms have softened, about 5 minutes more.
    2. Pour water and milk over mushroom mixture, add thyme and flour; bring to the boil. Cook until potatoes are very soft, adding water as needed, about 20 minutes. Crush some of the potatoes with a wooden spoon to get a creamier consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
