If you like loaded baked potatoes…. You will love this recipe for Baked Potato Soup… it has all the favori things in it… bacon, cheese, sour cream.. green onion…. So full of flavor!
This recipe is from the folks at Pillsbury…. I followed the recipe exactly… I found the soup extremely thick…I like it a bit thinner… I recommend that you start with the quantity of milk listed but be prepared to add more to thin it to your tastes.
My bacon rendered a lot of grease.. I poured all of it off except for about 2-3 tablespoons.. enough to mix well with the flour.
Use both the white and the green part of the green onion.
This makes a lot of servings… the recipe says 7 servings (1 ½ cup)…
This is sooo good…. perfect with sandwiches.
Recipe: Baked Potato Soup
All you need:
4 large baking potatoes
4 slices of bacon
6 cups milk (see Tips)
½ cup all purpose flour
4 green onions, sliced
1 ¼ cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
1 (8 oz.) container sour cream
All you have to do:
Pierce the potatoes with a fork and place on a microwave safe paper towel or roasting rack in a microwave oven. Microwave on high for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender.
Turn once after 10 minutes.
In a large pot, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove from the pot and drain on paper towels. Crumble the bacon and set aside.
Remove all but about 2-3 tablespoons of the bacon grease from the pot.
Add the flour and cook for about 3 minutes to cook off the flour taste.
Slowly add the milk, whisking with a wire whisk as it pours into the pot. Whisk vigorously until smooth and cook over medium heat about 15 minutes or until thickened. Stir frequently.
Cut the potatoes in half and scoop out the potato and discard the potato skins. Mash them with a fork.
Reserve a little bacon, green onion and shredded cheese for garnish.
Add the potatoes, and remaining bacon, onions, and cheese. Mix well. Cook until cheese is melted.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Add the sour cream and mix well.
Serve in cups or bowls and garnish with a little shredded cheese, onions and bacon.
