What’s Cooking – Baked Potato Soup

  • 9 baking potatoes
  • ⅔ cup butter
  • ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 cups whole milk
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ cup bacon bits, divided
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 10 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream

Prick potatoes with a fork and cook in the microwave, 3 or 4 at a time, or you can bake in the oven whichever you prefer. Once done scoop out the flesh into a bowl.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in flour and cook for about a minute. Whisk in milk, a little at a time, stirring constantly until thickened. Stir in potatoes, salt, pepper, 1/3 cup bacon bits, 2 tablespoons green onions, and most of the cheese.

Cook until thoroughly heated. Stir in sour cream and heat through.

Top with remaining bacon, onions and cheese.
** For a little kick, you can add some Cajun seasoning or Cayenne pepper
