    Loaded Baked Potato Soup

    6 large potatoes, scrubbed
    2/3 cup butter
    2/3 cup flour
    6 cups milk
    8 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
    1/4 cup onions, chopped
    1 cup sour cream
    10 slices bacon, fried crisp
    1/4 teaspoon salt

    Bake potatoes until tender. I microwave them to save time, but an oven works too.
    While potatoes are microwaving or during the last 10-15 minutes of baking time, melt butter in large saucepan. Whisk in flour and continue to cook and stir over medium heat until bubbly (about 1 minute). Add milk slowly, about 1 cup at a time. Continue to whisk frequently. Chop warm potatoes into cubes Once soup is warmed through and slightly thickened, add potatoes, 6-oz grated cheese and sour cream and salt. Heat until until cheese is melted. Stir in onion and bacon, reserving a little bacon for garnish. Serve in individual bowls garnished with a pinch of reserved cheese and a few crumbles of bacon. Makes 6-8 servings.
