Baked Potato Soup=Yummy!!!

I had a friend share her Potato Soup recipe with me recently and planned on making it last weekend...but wouldn't you know that I'd end up leaving it on my desk at work!!! So I searched through by cook books and found this one. I made this last Saturday and Rocky liked it so much he ate 3 bowls!!!! (If I did that btw I'd gain 10 lbs) So here it is in all of it's wonderful tastyness:

Baked Potato Soup

12 slices of bacon

2/3 cup of margarine

2/3 cup of flour

7 Cups milk

6 large baked potatoes, peeled and cubed

green onions, chopped

1 1/4 shredded cheddar cheese

1 Cup sour cream

salt and pepper to taste

Cook bacon, drain and crumble and set aside. In a stockpot melt margarine over medium heat. Whisk in flour until smooth. Gradually stir in milk, whisking constantly until thickened. Stir in potatoes and onions. Bring to a boil,stirring frequently. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Mix in bacon, cheese, sour cream, salt and pepper. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until cheese is melted.

This sounds AMAZING. Potato soup is one of my favorite cold-weather dishes. (And add bacon and cheese and sour cream.... What could be better?)
