    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    4 large potatoes
    2/3 cup butter
    2/3 cup flour
    1 1/2 quarts of milk
    Salt and Pepper
    4 green onions
    1 cup sour cream
    2 cups crisp-cooked, crumbled bacon
    5 ounces of grated cheddar cheese


    Heat oven to 350 degrees and bake the potatoes until for tender.
    Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Slowly blend in flour with a wire
    whisk until thoroughly blended. Gradually add milk to the butter-flour
    mixture, whisking constantly. Whisk in salt and pepper and simmer over
    low heat, stirring constantly.

    Cut potatoes in half, scoop out the meat and set aside. Chop half the
    potato peels and discard the remainder. When milk mixture is very hot,
    whisk in potato. Add green onion and potato peels. Whisk well, add
    sour cream and crumbled bacon. Heat thoroughly. Add cheese a little
    at a time until it is all melted in.

    Serve with crusty French Bread and fresh butter.
