Ingredients

How to make it

  • Cook bacon in large soup pan or dutch oven(use cast iron, if you have it!:), until just crisp See Photo. Save a bit aside, if desire, for garnish
  • Add potatoes to bacon and cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes until they begin to cook.
  • Add stock, green onions, and pepper and continue to cook on medium/medium high(don't boil) until taters are tender(time will depend on the size of the potatoes and desired doneness. I prefer these a lil less soft than for other soups.
  • Whisk together the flour with the milk until completely combined.
  • Add to pan and stir while heating and thickening. It's okay to get to a very low boil, but turn it down right away, if it does, so you don't scald your milk.
  • Add shredded cheese and salt, if needed, and more pepper
  • Once cheese is melted, stir in sour cream
  • Serve garnished with bacon bits and green onion tops, if desired

    I love a hearty potato soup, and your version with sour cream and 2 cups of cheese has my interest! This will be on the table soon (it's very cold here, and soup is the best comfort food on a cold night). Thank you for sharing your version of this soup - I can't wait to try it!
