I got this recipe out of a newspaper a couple of years ago and altered it a little to make it easier.

Nice and simple potato soup. I usually make a more traditional potato soup and I decided to try this. It's like a loaded baked potato in soup form. I used more milk for a thinner consistency and added a little garlic powder because that is my personal preference. I will be making it again in the future. Thanks for the recipe.

Directions

  1. Bake potatoes (easiest and fastest method - use the microwave - bake one at a time).
  2. Let potatoes cool, and scoop out pulp, discard skins.
  3. In large pot, melt butter, stir in flour, continue to stir until smooth.
  4. Stirring constantly, gradually add milk and cook over medium heat, stirring until thick and bubbly.
  5. Add potatoes, salt, pepper, 1/2 the chopped onion, and 1/2 the bacon. (fast method, buy the already cooked bacon) add cheese.
  6. Stir in sour cream.
  7. This as listed is a very thick sauce.
  8. Add more milk if needed for desired consistency.
  9. Also, salt and pepper to taste. This is very little salt and pepper for this recipe. I perfer little salt. Most people would add more.
  10. Heat throughly.
  11. When serving--top with green onion and bacon garnishes in each bowl.
