Servings: 4


  • 8 slices bacon cooked and crumbled. Reserve about 2 tablespoons of crumbled bacon for garnish
  • 11 tbsp butter
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 7 cups milk I used a combination of whole milk and 1%, use whatever you have on hand
  • 4-6 potatoes baked, peeled, cubed
  • 4 green onions chopped, plus additional for garnish
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese shredded, plus additional for garnish
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper


  • In a large stock pot, melt butter over medium heat. When the butter has melted, whisk in flour and allow the mixture to cook for a few minutes.
  • Slowly add in 7 cups of milk, 1 cup at a time, whisking really well between each cup.
  • When all 7 cups of milk have been added, continue whisking until the mixture starts to thicken a bit.
  • Add in cubed baked potatoes and green onions. Then bring to a boil making sure to stir frequently.
  • Reduce the heat to low, then stir in the cooked bacon, cheese, sour cream, salt and pepper.
  • Serve immediately once the cheese has melted. Garnish each bowl of soup with additional cheddar cheese, bacon crumbles, and chopped green onion.
