Cheesy Potato Soup

Cheesy Potato Soup

Introduction

A yummy and easy potato soup A yummy and easy potato soup
Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    7 small baking potatoes
    1 half an onion, chopped
    4 cups of milk
    1/3 a cup of flour
    1/2 a small container of sour cream (the container I used was 100 ml)
    5 small strips of bacon
    1/2 a cup of shredded cheddar/Gouda cheese
    Salt, Pepper, chili powder to taste
    Chopped green onions

Directions

Started off by washing the potatoes and then peeling them. You can leave the peel on if you would like.

Stabbed some holes into the potatoes, then popped them into the oven/microwave for about 40 or so minutes. Cook until done.

While the potatoes were cooking, I took the time to shred up the cheddar/Gouda cheese. Meanwhile, the potatoes had finished cooking.

I chopped up my half of an onion, and then chopped up/mashed my potatoes. You can mash the potatoes more or less depending upon the consistency of soup you would like. The Loaded Baked Potato soup I was hoping to emulate has big chunks of potato, so I left mine more chunky than mashed up.

I also went ahead and cooked my bacon.

I added my 1/3 cup of flour to a big pot on my stove and turned my heat on a medium setting.

Then I added 3 cups of milk (save the other cup of milk, you add it later!) and continued to stir in the flour until the mixture started to boil and thicken.

I then added in my potatoes, onions, and bacon (which I had shredded up by this point). Let that cook for a few minutes, then put in your last cup of milk and your 1/2 container of sour cream. Also, now is a good time to add any seasonings you want. I added some salt, pepper, and just a smidgen of chili powder. Stir and wait for the soup to start to boil again. Once it started to boil I added my cheese and stirred it up.

Serve how you would like, but we enjoyed ours with some green onions and extra cheese on top.
