This recipe came from a search when we had some leftover baked potatoes!
Baked Potato Soup
12 slices bacon
2/3 cup margarine
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
7 cups milk
4 large baked potatoes, peeled and cubed
4 green onions, chopped
1 1/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
Cook bacon, crumble and set aside. I used precooked bacon for my soup.
In a stock pot or Dutch oven, melt the margarine over medium heat.
Whisk in flour until smooth.
Gradually stir in milk, whisking constantly until thickened.
Cut up the onions and potatoes.
Stir in potatoes and onions.
Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes.
Mix in bacon, cheese, sour cream, salt, and pepper.
Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until cheese is melted.
You can also add corn to this to make it into a potato and corn chowder!
