Baked Potato Soup

I found this recipe on the internet. Another of our favorites and so easy and quick to make.

1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup flour
4 cups milk
6 large baking potatoes, scrubbed
1 cup sour cream

Microwave potatoes until done. While potatoes are cooking make a roux over low to medium heat. Mix butter, margarine or light olive oil and flour. DO NOT BURN THE ROUX. When roux is thickened a bit, gradually blend in milk. Continue cooking over low to medium heat while preparing potatoes. Peel and cut up potatoes. Add potatoes to the milk mixture. Blend in sour cream. Serve with all your baked potato favorites - chopped green onions, grated cheese, bacon bits and sour cream.
