Baked Potato Soup

I first found the potato soup mix from Bear Creek, and love it.  It's a just add water mix that someone else made and it was so delicious I asked for the recipe.  She said, it's found in aisle 5 at Hy-Vee.  hahaha....

But this time I decided to make it homemade.
Here's the recipe I chose.

5-7 medium/small potaots
1 stick butter
2/3 cup flour
5 cups milk
1 pkg bacon
3/4 bag of cheddar cheese
8 oz sour cream

First I peeled and boiled the potatoes in water with 3 pressed garlic cloves in the water.  I boiled them until slightly mushy.  Next melt the butter on the stove and add the flour to it.  Cook the bacon and crumble it.  I cooked it last night in the oven so it was ready for tonight.  Mix everything in the crockpot, or in a pot on the stove.
This was thick, more like a chowder, but good.  And TJ prefers his soups thick and chewy more than thin and slurpy.  He rates it a 7 out of 10.
