Date: 17 Sep 93 08:37:50 -0600

This is a rich, but great potato soup.
4 large potatoes
2/3 cup butter
2/3 cup flour
1 1/2 quarts of milk
Salt and Pepper
4 green onions
1 cup sour cream
2 cups crisp-cooked, crumbled bacon
5 ounces of grated cheddar cheese


Heat oven to 350 degrees and bake the potatoes until for tender.
Melt butter in a medium saucepan.  Slowly blend in flour with a wire
whisk until thoroughly blended.  Gradually add milk to the butter-flour
mixture, whisking constantly.  Whisk in salt and pepper and simmer over
low heat, stirring constantly.

Cut potatoes in half, scoop out the meat and set aside.  Chop half the
potato peels and discard the remainder.  When milk mixture is very hot,
whisk in potato.  Add green onion and potato peels.  Whisk well, add
sour cream and crumbled bacon.  Heat thoroughly.  Add cheese a little
at a time until it is all melted in.

Serve with crusty French Bread and fresh butter.  Mucho Goodo!
