  1. Bake potatoes 1 hour in a 400 degree F (200 degree C) oven. Scoop out the inside of the potatoes and set aside. Reserve the skins for another recipe or discard.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium low heat. Stir in the flour to make a roux. Cook about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually pour in the milk while stirring until all the milk has been added. Bring heat to medium and keep stirring until the soup mixture starts to get thick.
  3. Add the potatoes, green onions, salt, ground black pepper, bacon and cheese. Stir well and continue to heat for about 15 minutes, allowing the flavors to blend. Stirring well, mix in the sour cream until well blended with the soup. Serve immediately.

YUM!! This is a delicious soup recipe. I omitted the bacon (we're veggies) and used fat free sour cream--excellent. Also, I didn't have the time to bake the potatos, so I diced them up and boi...

My eldest son can't stop eating this soup. Got positive feedback from everyone who ate it. Don't make the mistake of adding additional flour to the roux because the soup thickens considerably wh...

I doubled this recipe and adapted it for the crockpot. I just peeled and quartered my potatoes, rinsed them and threw them in the crockpot and covered them with organic chicken broth. Once they ...

I really didn't care for this recipe. There was no mention of spices of any kind so the soup was rather bland.
