It's not the healthiest soup ever, it has yummy ingredients like sour cream, butter, and cheese but it sure makes a girl feel good on a cold day. On our last snow day, I made this soup for my family and we devoured every bit of it. There is never any soup left over when I make it..
Hannah learned how to make crescent rolls. No, they were not homemade. Who can compete with the Pillsbury Dough Boy? But, she had fun separating them and rolling them into crescent rolls and they were perfect with the soup!
Here is what you will be making:
Now on to the recipe extraordinaire! And I have to give credit where credit is due. It's not my recipe, but I would surely claim it for my own if I could! I found it at Allrecipes.com.
You will need these Ingredients:
12 slices bacon
2/3 cup margarine
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
7 cups milk 4 large
baked potatoes, peeled and cubed (I don't peel mine)
4 green onions, chopped (optional)
1 1/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (just pour in 2 cups if you want...it's okay!)
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
And here are the Directions:
Place bacon in a large, deep skillet (I often use my microwave to save time). Cook over medium heat until browned. Drain, crumble, and set aside.
In a stock pot or Dutch oven, melt the margarine over medium heat. Whisk in flour until smooth. Gradually stir in milk, whisking constantly until thickened. Stir in potatoes (they should already be baked and cubed) and onions (if you want. I've been known to save this step and just use Onion Powder). 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.
And then serve it up....it is delicious!!! I bet you won't have any leftovers! Let me know what you think if you try it!
