Pink Week Give Away at Blooming on Bainbridge

Please head on over to Blooming on Bainbridge, she is hosting Pink Week Giveaway. I am trying to think of something pink to bake in honor of this fun idea. Maybe I will use my new shoe cookie cutter, I have been looking for an excuse to use it!!! Have a great week!

Baked Potato Soup

Today, I am going to share with you my recipe for Potato Soup. The original recipe is from an acquaintance, but I made some changes.
This is how my husband feels about this soup, and it is actually making me very hungry, just looking at these pictures.

Baked Potato Soup

4 med/large baking potatoes, baked and cubed
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
7-8 cups milk
4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup sour cream
12 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped

Melt butter over medium heat and then add flour. Once it is well mixed add onion and saute until the onions are clear. Add milk and stir constantly, until thickened. Add potatoes, bacon, sour cream and cheddar cheese. Simmer for 20 minutes. Garnish bowls with green onions, bacon, cheese, and sour cream; optional!

To be honest, I do a lot of dumping and play with the portions a little bit. As long as you don't scald the milk this recipe is pretty forgiving. Enjoy!
