soups on

This weekend was productive. Grocery, my niece’s 1st birthday party and remodeling the hallway. Our first step into a home makeover. Turning my house into a little cottage has just begun. Of course, there was eating too. I made this loaded potato soup that was good enough to slap your cousin. Oh and my 7-up biscuits which are my new go-to recipe. Let me warn you, this recipe to so easy, but you will develop muscles similar to a body builder after you are finished from all the stirring. It was almost like the Old McDonald song, with a stir, stir here, and a stir, stir there, here a stir, there a stir, every where a stir, stir. Seriously, a lot of stirring. You get the picture? Here is the recipe. Hope you enjoy.

Loaded Potato Soup

2/3 cup butter
2/3 cup flour
7 cups milk
5 potatoes cubed
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup onions
12 ounces of bacon ( I used 2 jars of Hormel Bacon pieces)
1 cup sour cream
2 cups cheddar cheese
¾ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder

Dice potatoes and boil until done. Set aside.
Sauté onions with 1 tablespoon butter. Set aside.
In large pot melt butter. Add flour and whisk until smooth.
Gradually add milk one cup at a time, stirring until thickened.
Add potatoes and onions. Stirring constantly. Bring to boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add bacon, sour cream, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Stir until blended. Simmer 10 more minutes.
Serve with extra cheese and bacon on top.
