Creamy Potato Soup

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!

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:
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.
