Baked Potato Soup

This soup had the kids at our house literally making up songs and singing it's praise as they gobbled it up tonight. It's super delicious! I hope you like it too. 

Baked Potato Soup
4 Baked potatoes (we used left overs)
2/3 cup Flour
1/2 Cup Butter
6 Cups Milk
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 cup Sour Cream
3/4 cup sliced green onions divided
1lb sliced bacon cooked and crumbled

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a glass oven proof dish place your butter. When the butter is mostly melted pour in the flour, and whisk until blended. Bake for 15-18 minutes until bubbly.

Ia large pot pour in all the milk, and add the flour mixture stirring with a whisk until all blended. Cook over medium heat until thick and bubbly (approx 8 minutes.) Add peeled and roughly chopped/roughly mashed potatoes, 3/4 cup cheese, salt, pepper stirring until cheese melts. Remove from heat.

Stir in sour cream, 3/4 of the crumbled bacon and 1/2 cup onions. Cook over low heat until thoroughly heated but DO NOT BOIL. Garnish with additional cheese, bacon and onions and ground pepper.
