Baked Potato Soup

With a cold chill in the air this week, it is the perfect excuse to make warm soup for dinner. Baked potato may be the most comforting cup of soup there is. In one spoonful you get creamy pototoes, salty bits of bacon and a hint of tang from the sour cream. My favorite ingredient in this recipe is probably the green onions though. Enjoy this baked potato soup tonight!
Baked Potato Soup
6 c. potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces
2 1/2 c. water
2 c. half and half
3 Tbs. flour
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 bunch green onions, sliced
1 c. cheddar cheese
1/2 lb. bacon, cut and cooked until crispy
1/2 c. sour cream
In a medium soup pot, add water and potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat and continue to boil 12-15 minutes. Add onions and garlic powder. Whisk flour into half and half until smooth. Slowly pour and stir half and half into simmering potatoes. Add cheddar cheese and bacon and season to taste. Continue to simmer until potatoes are tender. Serve topped with sour cream and additional green onions and cheddar cheese.
