So this soup was amazing. I think Marshall ate 3 bowls of it. Super Easy too. I adapted this recipe from myrecipes.com. Enjoy!
4 baking potatoes
2/3 cups all-purpose flour
6 cups 2% milk (I used non fat)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup chopped green onion
6 slices of bacon
Pierce potatoes with a fork; bake at 400 for 1 hour or until tender. Cool. Peel potatoes; coarsely mash.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Place flour in a large Dutch oven; gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk until blended. Cook over medium heat until thick and bubbly (about 8 minutes). Add mashed potatoes. 3/4 cup cheese. salt. and 1/2 teaspoon pepper, stirring until cheese melts.
Remove from heat.
Stir in sour cream and 1/2 cup onion. Cook over low heat 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated (do not boil). Top soups with a little cheese, green onion, and bacon.
