How to make a baked potato soup
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 the bacon slices and cook in a skillet over medium heat. Drain, crumble and set aside.
Step 3: In a large saucepan, 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.
Step 5: Add in the bacon slices, sour cream, salt, pepper, and cheese until mixed well and the cheese is melted. Serve warm and with toppings of sour cream, bacon, green onion, and cheese if desired.

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.
You still have time to make it….I won’t take it off the blog 🙂 You will love it, it’s delicious!
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!
You should totally make yourself that recipe and share it on the blog. I love to do that!
I’m trying to do soups for the whole month of January and this one is totally going on my list to try!!
