Bacon Cheese Potato Soup


  • 6 to 8 large baking potatoes
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup butter
  • 8-12 strips bacon, cooked
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 8 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded

Bake the potatoes until they are tender. Cool slightly and then peel. Mash the potatoes if you want a creamy soup. If you prefer a chunky potato soup, cut the peeled potatoes into cubes.

Combine the butter and flour in a large soup pot. Cook on medium heat, stirring, for 1 minute, then slowly whisk in the milk and chicken broth.

Add salt and pepper, potatoes, cooked bacon and cheddar cheese. Simmer until cheese is melted and soup is heated thoroughly. Just before serving, stir in the sour cream and season to taste with salt and pepper.
