Homemade Potato Soup

Pin It Now!

There is nothing better than a bowl of hot soup on a cold day. Unfortunately, I have had to pretty much give up on the "cold day" part since moving to the desert. :)  I will still keep making soup, though. This one happens to be one of my hubby's favorites!

Potato Soup

- 4 large potatoes
- 2/3 cup butter
- 2/3 cup flour
- 6 cups milk (and maybe more)
- 1 TBSP or more of black, ground pepper
- 2-3 tsp salt
- 4 green onions sliced
- 12 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled
- 1 1/4 cup shredded cheddar
- 8 oz. sour cream

*Bake potatoes at 400 degrees for 1-1 1/2 hours. Cool. Cut in half and scoop out pulp. Set aside. Melt butter over low heat, add flour and stir until smooth. Cook 1 min. stirring constantly. Add milk. Cook over med. heat stirring constantly until thick and bubbly. (This does take some time--20 min. at least.) Add potato pulp, salt, pepper, 2 TBSP chopped, green onions, bacon, and 1 cup cheese. Cook until heated through. Stir in sour cream. Add more milk if necessary.

** Bacon can be set aside and used as a topping if you like. Sometimes, I just stir it all in the soup to avoid family members fighting over it!! Use the rest of the onions and cheese as toppings. Seriously some good soup.
