Loaded Baked Potato Yumminess

  • 5-6 baking potatoes (about 3 pounds)
  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 4 ½ cups of milk (I use 2%)
  • 1 can cheddar cheese soup
  • 1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar
  • Salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • 1 cup sour cream (I use reduced fat)
  • ½ cup green onions, chopped
  • ½ cup frozen broccoli florets (optional)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Pierce the potatoes with a fork; bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour or until tender. Cool.  (You can peel if you don’t like the skins, I usually don’t peel them though)  Cut into cubes, slightly mash.

Gradually spoon the flour into crock pot; gradually add the milk, stirring with a whisk until blended.  Stir in soup, whisk.  Add cheese, salt and pepper, stirring until cheese melts. Stir in the sour cream, onions and broccoli (if used).  Add potatoes.  Give it a good stir and let it cook for 2 hours in Crock Pot on Low, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile: Broil slices of bacon in the oven to use as topping.  Serve soup in bowls and top with sour cream, chives and bacon.

    You can also do the potatoes in the microwave if you’re lazy like me. Just take them and poke holes in them with a fork. Throw them in a ziploc bag with a bit of water and some butter. Microwave them for 10 minutes or until tender. Voila you have a microwaved/baked/steamed tater. Just be careful the bag will be HOT!
