Loaded Baked Potato Soup with Cheesy Pull Apart Bread

Hi everyone! I hope everyone is staying warm and surviving "Arctic Blast 2010". Its been so cold here in my neck of the woods! We have had the coldest temps here in about 8 years. Its kinda funny to watch the news and they call it the "arctic blast 2010". I have also been under the weather and cant seem to kick it so I have been trying to rest. I happen to come across my very favorite food blog (like I dont visit everyday!) Mommys Kitchen at www.tinamommyx3.blogspot.com and she had this delicioius looking soup with some wonderful cheesy bread that I just had to make it. I started out baking about 8 slices of bacon. It called for 12 but 8 is all that would fit on my cookies sheet.
Then I baked 4 good sized potatoes.
This is the rest of my ingredients. Butter, flour milk, chicken broth, salt, pepper, green onions (optional), cheddar cheese, and sour cream.

I started out making a roux of butter and flour.


Added in my broth and milk.



And then added the salt, pepper, baked potatoes, cheddar cheese.

This soup was so comforting and delicious you must go over to her site and see the entire recipe. I just love her site. She is a special girl and she has a real talent for food blogging. She works really hard and never fails to leave comments on other peoples blogs as well. She makes you feel like she always has time for a friend by her sweet comments.
This Cheesy Pull Apart Bread is a great accompaniment to the soup. It is extremely east to put together. Go see Mommys Kitchen and you will be glad you did. She has complete tutorials on both of these great recipes and has the recipes there with a printable button as well.
