My mom use to make a potato soup when I was a kid and I got hungry for it. :) I asked but she said she didn't know where the recipe went. So this is my version. Turned out pretty good. All the picky kids ate it. LOL
2/3 cup butter
2/3 cup flour
2 cups milk
6 cups of chicken broth (or 6 cups of water and 6 tsp. of chicken bouillon)
4 large baking potatoes, baked, cooled, peeled and cubed, about 4 cups
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1pkg of bacon, cooked, drained, and crumbled
1 1/4 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1/2 teaspoon pepper
In a large Dutch oven or stockpot over medium heat, melt butter and cook onion till tender.
Stir in flour with whisk; stir until smooth and bubbly. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly, until sauce has thickened.
Add potatoes. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until soup begins to bubble.
Reduce heat; simmer gently for 10 minutes. Add remaining 5 ingredients; stir until cheese is melted. Serve baked potato soup immediately.
This baked potato soup recipe serves 6 to 8
Might try just frying the bacon and onion together and using the grease instead of the butter.
