Do you have a recipe for potato soup?

Potato Soup

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

Bake the potatoes until tender, cool, and peel. 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. When milk mixture is very hot, add chopped potatoes and green onions. Stir well, then add sour cream and crumbled bacon. Heat thoroughly. Add cheese a little at a time until it is all melted. Slowly pour in the milk until you reach the desired consistency. If the soup is too runny, you can add some dried potato flakes to thicken.
