Baked Potato Soup

I don't usually think to make a hearty soup in the middle of June, but the weather here has been wet and frigid. Today just screamed for this yummy soup!

4 large potatoes, cooled, peeled and cubed
2/3 c butter
2/3 c flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp white pepper
6 cups whole milk
8 oz sour cream
1/4 cup green onions
10 slices bacon, cooked and crumbed
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

In a large saucepan heat butter, flour, salt and pepper over medium heat. Whisk until smooth and bubbly. Cook one minute. Gradually whisk in milk and add potato cubes. Bring to a low boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in sour cream. Garnish individual servings with onions, bacon and cheese.

It's been chilly here too, I've been thinking of soup myself. I love this concept, a baked potato you could drink! Sorta... ;)
