Baked Potato Soup

This soup is really good, especially on a cold day.

Baked Potato Soup

4 medium baking potatoes
2/3 cup butter
2/3 cup flour
6 cups milk
salt/pepper
4 green onions, chopped
10 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup sour cream

Bake or microwave potatoes. Cool. Scoop potato out of skins into bite size cubes. Set asisde. In a heavy Dutch oven, melt butter. Add flour, stirring so flour does not clump. Add milk, slowly, while stirring constantly. Reduce heat; stir occasionally, until sauce is thickened. Stir in potatoes, salt/pepper, 2 tbsp. green onion, 1/2 bacon, and 1 cup cheese and heat until cheese is melted. Stir in sour cream; heat until bubbly. Serve with remaining onions, bacon, and cheese.

As it's hot here now (I live in San Diego), I've been making a cold one, with (lots of) leeks, that I got from an Everyday Food magazine, some time ago.

I cook the leeks with the potato in chicken broth, with salt and pepper. Then I puree this in the blender, add a little cream and cool it in the refrigerator. And then I serve it with chopped chives

It looks delicious. I'll have to wait for awhile to make this, as we're going into a stretch of weather in the 90's for awhile, but I will print this for later in the year.

It's hot here, too, but I don't think I will wait. I will just serve it with a big salad and a cool dessert. Thanks for posting the recipe.
