This is one of those delicious recipes that you can make any time you want something just so....well... yummy! My mom found this recipe in a magazine once and it became an instant hit at our house. It freezes well so you can keep serving sizes in your freezer to heat up for a warm lunch or quick dinner. It would also be a great dinner to share with someone else, like a sick neighbor or friend. The pictures really don't do it justice, it's thick and creamy, and delicious. The last one ended up blurry, sorry about that.
Baked Potato Soup (8-10 servings)
2/3 cup margarine
7 Cups milk
1 ¼ cups shredded cheddar cheese
¾ tsp salt
2/3 cup flour
4 lg potatoes, baked, cooled, cubed
12 bacon strips, cook and crumble
8 oz sour cream
½ tsp pepper
Melt butter, stir in flour.
Gradually add milk, stir until thick.
Add potatoes and onion.
Boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes.
Add remaining ingredients.
Remove from heat and stir until cheese is melted.
