Ingredients Needed:

  • 4 large cooked and cubed potatoes
  • 7 cups of milk
  • 2/3 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 green onions – chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 slices of bacon
  • 1 cup sour cream

Step 1:  If you haven’t cooked your potatoes yet, go ahead and peel the potatoes, cube them, and cover them with water.  Boil the water for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are soft.

Step 2: Take your bacon slices and in a skillet over medium heat.  Drain and set aside.

Step 3: In a large sauce pan, melt your butter over medium-high heat and whisk in the flour until smooth.  Slowly pour in a little milk at a time and continue to stir. Slowly add the milk to allow it to thicken slightly.

Step 4: Add in the potatoes and the chopped green onion and stir.  Increase heat slightly until your mixture comes to a boil.  Lower heat and allow the soup to simmer, and stirring frequently.  While simmering, go ahead and chop your bacon slices.

I sent this recipe to my husband this afternoon with a little note that said, “Hint hint.” Sadly, a snowstorm hit our town today and he couldn’t stop at the grocery store on the way home because the roads were too dangerous.
Tomorrow, maybe!

We love soup in the wintertime. This looks delicious! Pinning! I made a great soup last night and of course I was flying by the seat of my pants and wrote nothing down. But I can duplicate it. I think it’s a blog post!
