Baked Potato Soup

2/3 cup Butter
2/3 cup Flour
7 cups Milk
4 large Potatoes, peeled and cubed
4 green Onions, sliced
1 pkg. Bacon pieces {I use bacon bits.}
1 1/4 cups Cheddar Cheese
1 8 oz Sour Cream
3/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper

1. Microwave your potatoes until soft {peeled or not peeled, your choice}.
2. Melt butter and stir in flour over medium heat until smooth {if it is a little lumpy you can whisk it out after you add the milk}.
3. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly until thickened.
4. Add potatoes and onions.
5. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
6. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.
7. Add bacon, cheese and sour cream.
8. Stir until cheese is melted.
Note: I have had a few scalding episodes {remember I get a little side tracked when cooking} trying to get my potatoes soft. This is why I suggest microwaving the potatoes and getting them soft first.

This makes about 2 1/2 quarts. This is the yummiest soup and is very filling. ENJOY!
