Tasty Tuesday – Baked Potato Soup

4 lg. potatoes

1 1/2 stick of butter

2/3 c. all-purpose flour

3 c. milk

2 tsp. salt, pepper to taste

4 green onions, chopped

3 oz. real bacon pieces

2 c. shredded cheddar cheese

8 oz. sour cream

Bake potatoes at 400 degrees for 1 hour.  Let cool. Scoop out pulp and discard skins.  Melt butter in large pot over low heat.  Add flour, stirring until smooth.  Gradually add milk and broth.  Cook over medium-high heat stirring constantly until mixture is thick and bubbly.  Reduce heat to low and add potato pulp, salt, pepper, onions, bacon and cheese.  Cook until thoroughly blended.  Add sour cream.

This recipe was adapted from a cookbook printed by a sister-church, and has served me well.  I like it in all kinds of weather, but I prefer it on the cold, wet days.  It is very filling (and very bad for you…which makes it really good!), and it’s a great comfort food.  Do you have any special comfort foods on the dreary days?
