Favorite Food Fridays: Baked Potato Soup

This is one of our absolute favorite recipes (and so so perfect for a cold day!). The recipe is adapted a bit from my good friend Tina's and comes together in 30 minutes if you cook the bacon while baking the potatoes in the microwave.

Baked Potato Soup
2/3c butter
2/3c flour
7c milk
4 large potatoes - baked, peeled, and mashed
4 green onions, sliced
10-12 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
1c shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter and stir in flour to make a roux. Cook until smooth and bubbly!  Gradually add milk while stirring until incorporated. Add potatoes and onions and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 10 minutes.  Add bacon and cheese and stir until heated through and cheese is melted.

Thanks for reading!

  1. It's an awesome recipe! We have never done the sour cream or other parts of it (mostly because I am lazy, lol), but every single person in my family has 2nds or 3rds when we eat it so it is definitely a favorite!
