Baked Potato Soup


Bake the potatoes until tender.  Cool them and then split them in half and scoop out the pulp.  I froze the potato skin shells.  I'm going to try to make stuffed potato skins at some point

In a large pot, melt the butter.  Stir in the flour and cook for a minute.  Gradually add the milk.  Cook over medium heat until bubbly.  Don't let it boil and stir it often.  Add the potato pulp, cheese, bacon, and salt & pepper to taste.

Heat the soup, but don't let it boil.  You may need to add a bit more milk if it seems too thick.  Serve it with extra cheese and bacon as desired


Rachel's Notes: I found this recipe here, ont he EAt at Home blog. Now the DH I knew he wouldn't go for the green onions in his soup so I omitted those, I also didn't add cheese I sprinkled mine on after and Dh opted for no cheese, This was a very yummy and comforting soup! I really liked this soup great for a change from regular potato soup.
