I really enjoy making soup and really, really enjoy eating this soup! It’s hard to go wrong with the key components of potatoes, bacon, and cheese. Because it is such a rich soup, I feel better eating it with the addition of steamed broccoli. Enjoy!
- 4-5 large baked potatoes (once cooled, peel all or a portion of the potatoes as desired, and then cube)
- 2/3 c butter
- 2/3 c flour
- 7 c milk
- 4 green onions
- 10-12 strips of bacon (cooked and crumbled)
- 1 c shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 c sour cream
- 1 to 1 1/2 c chopped, steamed broccoli
- salt and pepper to taste
Melt butter in a large stock pot over medium heat; add flour and whisk until smooth (~1 to 2 minutes). Gradually add in the milk and stir until thickened. Add in the potatoes and onion; bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add all remaining ingredients and stir until the cheese is melted.
