Baked Potato Soup

I LOVE this soup. It is perfect for winter. Although it has potatoes, it also happens to have plenty of bacon, sour cream, and cheddar cheese (hehe) so I try not to make it too often, but it's fun once in awhile! It's thick and creamy and delicious and perfect for a cold night - or even a warm night! What's even better is it's not very hard at all. You bake your potatoes ahead of time (or microwave them like I do), cook your bacon, and then basically throw everything together. Yum! Just remember to work out extra hard the next day. ;)

Baked Potato Soup

2/3 c. butter
2/3 c. flour
7 c. milk
4 large potatoes, baked
4 green onions, chopped
12 oz. bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 1/2 c. cheddar cheese, grated
8 oz. sour cream

In a large pot, melt butter. Add flour and let thicken until pasty (a couple minutes). Add milk and cook until thickened, stirring regularly. Meanwhile, peel skins off potatoes and chop into cubes. Add when milk has thickened. Add onions, sour cream, cheddar cheese and bacon. Heat through and serve!

Enjoy! Easy-peasy!
