Today Brian and I went to Trader Joe's, just the two of us. I love that place, don't you?!?!? We got some nice cheeses, crackers, and wine for date night tonight. I seriously cannot wait. Date night has been sparse around these parts for a few months now. We got a bunch of our other favorite things from there as well, plus a few new to try. After we left, I was teasingly told I can't go along anymore. I find too many good things.
I wanted to share my Baked potato soup recipe with you. I have been making it for quite a while, and it is one of our favorites. Ian asked me if I could make the white, not orange "mean" soup again.
Baked Potato Soup
Adapted from the Taste of Home Magazine Feb/Mar 1994
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
7 cups of skim milk
4 large baking potatoes, baked, cooled, peeled, and cubed (about 4 cups)
4 green onions
6 bacon strips cooked and crumbled (set aside in a small bowl)
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese (set aside in a bowl)
1 cup light sour cream
In a large dutch oven, melt the butter. Stir in the flour, until smooth. Slowly add the milk a little at a time stirring constantly until thickened and smooth. Add potatoes and onions. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; simmer for about 10 minutes. Add the sour cream, salt and pepper. Serve in individual bowls, top with bacon and cheese. Enjoy!
Have a great weekend friends!!!
