    Default Baked Potato Soup

    Baked Potato Soup

    All the flavors of a loaded baked potato come together in this rich, creamy soup.

    I used sautéed onions for the green onions and used Cabot’s 50% cheddar cheese, 1% milk and Oscar Mayer center cut bacon. I froze the skins for making cheddar bacon potato skins in the near future.

    4 baking potatoes (about 2 1/2 pounds)
    2/3 cup all-purpose flour
    6 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
    1 cup (4 ounces) reduced-fat shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese, divided
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
    3/4 cup chopped green onions, divided
    6 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    Pierce potatoes with a fork; bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour or until tender. Cool. Peel potatoes; coarsely mash. Discard skins.

    Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Place flour in a large Dutch oven; gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk until blended. Cook over medium heat until thick and bubbly (about 8 minutes). Add mashed potatoes, 3/4 cup cheese, salt, and pepper, stirring until cheese melts. Remove from heat.

    Stir in sour cream and 1/2 cup onions. Cook over low heat 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated (do not boil). Sprinkle each serving with cheese, onions, and bacon.

    YIELD: 8 servings (serving size: about 1 1/2 cups soup, 1 1/2 teaspoons cheese, 1 1/2 teaspoons onions, and about 1 tablespoon bacon)

    I made this tonight with a few subsitutions.

    Garden onions instead of green onions
    2% cheddar/moz. mix instead of extra sharp cheddar cheese
    and only 2 slices of bacon.

    It came out pretty good. No one turned their nose up to it and theres no leftovers so I guess everyone else liked it too.
