Loaded Potato Soup
  • 9 baking potatoes
  • 2/3 c. butter
  • 2/3 c. all-purpose flour
  • 6 c. whole milk
  • 1/2 Tbsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 c. bacon bits, divided
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 10 oz. shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1-8 oz. container sour cream
  1. Poke potatoes with a fork and cook in the microwave, 3 or 4 at a time, and scoop out the flesh (while the others are cooking).
  2. 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 potatoes, salt, pepper, 1/3 c. bacon bits, 2 Tbsp green onions and most of the cheese. Cook until thoroughly heated. Stir in sour cream and heat through. Serve topped with remaining bacon, onions and cheese.
I got this recipe from a fellow Nestie, and wanted to post it here so I wouldn't lose it before I got a chance to try it!
