Cozy, Comfort Food


We have had some really cool days and evenings for the desert, so I have been in the mood for some really yummy comfort food.  One of my favorites is 

Black Angus Baked Potato Soup

I found this recipe online at and it is soooooooo good.  Thought you might like some too.
  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 10 minutes
This soup is hardy and makes a deliciously filling meal!


  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 2/3 cup butter or margarine
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 6 cup milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 4 green onions -- chopped and divided
  • 12 slices bacon -- cooked and crumbled
  • 1 1/4 cup cheddar cheese -- shredded and divided
  • 8 ounces sour cream


Wash, dry and prick potatoes with fork. Bake potatoes. (I wrap mine in wax paper and then bake in the microwave.  4 potatoes on high for 12 minutes and they are done. ) Let cool. Cut into half lengthwise and scoop out pulp; set aside. Use skins for something else, such as stuffed potato skins. Melt butter in heavy saucepan over low heat; add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add milk, cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Add potato pulp, salt, pepper, 2 Tbsp. green onion, half the bacon and 1 cup cheese. Cook until thoroughly heated. Stir in sour cream to taste.   Add extra milk if necessary for desired consistency. Serve with remaining green onions, bacon and cheese.  Makes 4 really hearty servings.
