The Best Potato Soup you will ever eat

Better than Fatz

* 9 baking potatoes
* 2/3 cup butter
* 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
* 6 cups whole milk
* 1/2 tablespoon salt
* 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
* 1/2 cup bacon bits, divided
* 4 green onions, chopped
* 10 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese
* 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream

1. Prick potatoes with a fork and cook in the microwave, 3 or 4 at a time, and scoop out the flesh (while the others are cooking).

2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in flour and cook about a minute. Whisk in milk, a little at a time, stirring constantly.

3. Stir in potatoes, salt, pepper, 1/3 cup bacon bits, 2 tablespoons green onions and most of the cheese. Cook until thoroughly heated.

4. Stir in sour cream and heat through. Serve topped with remaining bacon, onions and cheese.
