Mmm it’s chilly outside, we’re lazy in pjs, so why not make the best winter comfort food ever!! Soup!

It’s super easy and takes about 20 minutes to make. You will need two pots.

-2 lbs diced potato
-8oz sour cream
-2 cups shredded cheddar
-3/4 cup flour
-6 cups chicken broth
-4 cups whole milk
-1 stick of butter
-1lb bacon
-1lb large onion
-4 diced scallion to taste
-Salt and pepper

Crisp bacon in a skillet and set aside. Save the bacon drippings and saute onion until soft.

In a large pot, bring to a boil potatoes and chicken broth. In your second pot, melt a stick of butter and add flour to create a roux. Slowly add 4 cups of milk until thickened slightly. Pour milk into the pot of potatoes and broth. Add cheese, sour cream, onion, bacon, scallion, salt and pepper to taste and simmer for 5 minutes until thickened.

I served bowls topped with a little crispy bacon and shredded cheese. It’s really filling and very easy to make.
