Tasty Tuesday! Loaded Baked Potato Soup...

There's nothing I enjoy more (except maybe coffee) on a snowy winters day than
a pot of homemade soup. Below is the recipe that I use when I'm in the mood for
some really great Loaded Baked Potato Soup...

8 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
8 cups milk
1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
3 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
chopped green onion
salt and pepper to taste

Place cubed potatoes into a glass dish, and cook in the microwave oven for 7 to 10 minutes, or until soft.
While your cooking the potatoes, melt the butter in a large pot over medium-high heat using your whisk blend in the flour until smooth, then stir in the milk. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low, and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
Stir in the potatoes and cook for 5 more minutes. Stir in the sour cream, cheddar cheese and bacon bits until melted and well blended. Season with salt and pepper to taste. This is great with yeast rolls!
