This is an awesome soup. My family loved it. I microwaved the potatoes instead of baking them.

  4. Cook over medium heat for 15 minutes or until bubbly and thickened, stirring frequently.
  5. Scoop out potato pulp from the skins; add to the milk mixture; mash with the back of a wooden spoon leaving it a little bit chuncky.
  6. Add bacon (leaving a little out for topping the soup), 2 tablespoons of the onion, 1 cup cheese, and salt and pepper.
  7. Stir until cheese has melted.
  8. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream; mix until combined.
