Sunday Supper {Baked Potato Soup}

This hearty soup is absolutely the best on a wintry evening.  I look forward to making it all spring, summer and fall and it was a perfect, laid back kind of Sunday Supper fare last weekend.


Baked Potato Soup
4 large baking potatoes
2/3 cup butter
2/3 cup flour
6 cups milk (I use skim)
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1.5 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
12 slices bacon cooked, crumbled, divided
4 green onions chopped, divided
8oz sour cream (I use light)

1. Wash potatoes, prick with a fork, bake at 400 for 1 hr or until done.  Cool.  Cut in half lengthwise, scoop out pulp and reserve.  Discard shells.
2. Melt butter over low heat, add flour, stirring until smooth.  Cook 1 min, stirring constantly.  Gradually add milk, cook over med heat, stirring constantly until thickened and bubbly.
3. Stir in potato, salt, pepper, 1 c cheese, 1/2 c bacon, 2 tablespoons green onions.  Cook until heated (don’t boil). Stir in sour cream.  Cook just until melted.  Top with remaining cheese, bacon and green onions.  Makes 10 cups.

I serve it with a large salad and there is plenty for leftovers.

  1. This looks delicious!! Just may have to make it tomorrow as we are expecting 8-10 inches of snow today and a wind chill of -30 to -40 tomorrow. (And yes that says negative! Uugghh.) This will definitely hit the spot. Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. Sounds wonderful!! Thanks for sharing!! Now I know what we are having for dinner tomorrow :)

  3. I've got to make this…it's got all the "food groups" in it!

    I made chicken tortilla soup and banana puddin' for dessert…now I'm stuffed!

    stay warm my friend!

  4. This is the exact same recipe I've been making for the past 3 or 4 years, and it is our favorite! In fact I made it yesterday! I cut out over half of the bacon, just because it's so much and it gets kind of soggy while it's cooked in the soup….still tastes great! :). Stay warm…it's going to be a cold week!
