Me, too! In fact it’s on the menu for tonight. I’m going to try Denny’s recipe tonight but here's my recipe:
Crumbled Bacon (I use the pre-cooked and crumbled variety so I don't have to deal with the mess.)
2/3 cup margarine or butter
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
8 cups milk
4 large baked potatoes, peeled or not, smashed - set aside.
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1 1/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon dill weed
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
In a stock pot or Dutch oven, melt the margarine over medium heat; add the chopped onions. Add salt, pepper and dill to the flour. Blend the flour/spice mixture into the margarine/butter until smooth. Gradually stir in milk, stirring constantly until thickened. It should have a chowder texture to it. Stir in potatoes and half the cheese. Bring to an almost boil, stirring frequently.
Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Serve with bacon and remaining cheese on the side.
Enjoy, It's a meal in itself; a baked potato soup will really fill you up for not so much cash. This receipe feeds 5 with leftovers for lunch the next day. Take care, Lisa
