So cooler weather makes me think of soups and chowders. I found this recipe and made it (with modifications) and everyone in my family loved it! Thanks to allrecipes.com for this.
LOADED POTATO SOUP
8 Potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/2 cup Butter
1/2 cup All-purpose Flour
1/4 cup chopped Onion
1 (8 oz.) container of Sour Cream
1 - 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Boil potatoes and onion, in just enough water to cover until soft.
While potatoes are cooking melt butter in a sauce pan over med.-high heat. Whisk in flour until smooth, then gradually stir in the milk. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 10 more minutes, or until slightly thickened.
Stir flour mixture into the potatoes (most of the water will have evaporated or cooked out). Cook 5 more minutes. Stir in sour cream and cheese until melted and blended. Season to your liking.
*I used mozzarella cheese and I used more of it (like another cup). I also added dill and I added cubed ham to it.
It was so good that it is going in my green recipe notebook. It was simple to make and a big family pleaser for all of us.
It was yummy!
