You gotta love a meal that can be made from leftovers. A new, completely different meal! Just bake some extra potatoes and you’re well on your way to your next meal: loaded baked potato soup. Warm, thick, creamy, and topped with cheese, onions, and bacon. Oh yeah. Uh huh. Bacon!
2/3 c margarine
2/3 c flour
7 c milk
4 large baked potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 c sour cream
1 t salt
½ t pepper
4 green onions, chopped
12 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1¼ c shredded cheddar cheese
In large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour and cook for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Stir in potatoes. Bring to boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in sour cream, salt and pepper. Serve warm with onions, bacon and cheese as garnish.
