Baked Potato Soup

Soup seems to be the hot item these days. So to mix it up here's a new one for your family to taste and enjoy!

12 slices of bacon
2/3 C butter
2/3 C flour
7 C milk
4 Large baked potatoes, peeled and cubed
4 green onions, chopped (4? Gag...maybe 1)
1 1/4 C shredded cheese (Hello, add more! Never to much cheese!)
1 C sour cream
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt

Cook bacon until crisp, crumble and set aside.

In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour until smooth. Gradually stir in milk, whisking constantly until thickened.

Stir in potatoes and onions. Bring to boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Mix in bacon, cheese, sour cream, salt and pepper. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until the cheese is melted.

Optional: Don't add all the bacon. In each serving add to the top for garnish and a little more crunch.
