Loaded Potato Soup

I made this for dinner the other night.  It was easy to make but took a bit of time which was worth it!  Just go slow and follow the directions carefully and you will be rewarded for your time and effort.

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 1/2 cups chopped onion

6 cups chicken broth

2 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and cubed

2/3 cup butter

3/4 cup flour

4 cups milk

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

1 cup diced cooked ham

1 cup crumbled real bacon (from Costco bag)

8 oz sour cream

2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1  In 12″ skillet, cook onion in olive oil until tender.

2  In 6 quart Dutch oven, mix onion, broth and potatoes.  Heat to boiling, reduce heat and cook 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

3  Meanwhile, in same skillet, melt butter over low heat.  Stir in flour with whisk until smooth.  Cook and stir 1 minute.  Gradually stir in 2 cups milk.  Pour milk into potato mixture.  Add remaining 2 cups milk and salt and pepper.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with whisk, until mixture is thick and bubbly.

4  Stir in ham, bacon, sour cream, and 2 cups cheese.  Cook until heated through and cheese is melted.  Top individual servings with more bacon and cheese if desired.
