The Most Fattening Baked Potato Soup Ever. (End of story.)
Why I Love This Recipe
This is a recipe I found in a cookbook a long time ago and over time has morphed into a family recipe. Most of the ingredients' quantities can be altered. If you like your soup chunky then a third potato can be added, if you like yours, well soupy, then less potato can be added. You can also add more or less cheese, onion, and bacon to the soup.
P.S. I have been making this soup forever and I still cannot make a double batch without boiling over.
Ingredients You'll Need
4 cups of milk
3 to 5 red Potatoes
3 TBSPs of flour
1/2 onion, chopped
3 TBSPs butter
Lots of shredded cheddar cheese
Thick sliced bacon
Prick and bake the potatoes (however you choose to cook them, I just microwave them)
Melt the butter in a pot and then add the onion. Cook until translucent.
Add the flour and stir until it bubbles
Pour 1 cup of milk into this and stir until smooth
Add the rest of the milk and stir
Peel the (hopefully) now cooled down potatoes and cut into about dice sized pieces
Let simmer until it starts to boil, in the mean time cook the bacon (microwave, oven, stovetop) and shred the cheese
Break up the bacon into itsy bitsy pieces
Add the bacon into the soup (I like lots of bacon in it but its all personal preference)
Ladel the soup into bowls and top off with cheese
