Baked Potato Soup

  • Drooling!!!  This is my favorite baked potato soup recipe, EVER!  Made it for a shower last week and it was a raving hit.  And it's even better the next day!!

  • {What you need}

  • 9 baking potatoes
  • 2/3 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup bacon bits
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 10 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream

  • Prick potatoes with a fork, cover in tin foil and bake at 400 degrees for about 1 hour, or a little longer.  Scoop out the flesh and reserve in a bowl.  While potatoes are baking, in a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in flour and cook about a minute. Whisk in milk, a little at a time, stirring constantly until thickened. Stir in potato flesh, salt, pepper, and most of the cheese.  Cook until thoroughly heated.  Stir in sour cream and heat through. Serve topped with bacon, onions and remaining cheese.
