Loaded Potato Soup

Loaded Potato Soup
I got this recipe from my friend Christi
Gibson.  I have been looking for a Potato soup recipe for years that resembled
O’Charley’s recipe because that is my FAVORITE!!!!  I revised it a little,
because I didn’t have certain things on hand, but gave you guys the true
recipe. It is out of this world GOOD and hits the spot on those cold rainy sick
days!  Hope you all enjoy!
3 lbs red potatoes, peeled and diced
1/4 cup butter melted
1/4 cup flour
8 cups half and half
1 16 oz package of Velveeta cheese (diced
white pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
1 tsp hot pepper sauce
bacon cooked crisp
shredded cheddar cheese
chopped fresh chives
a sprinkle of parsley (optional, and the
original recipe called for fresh parsley, I used dired)
(I think I salted to taste also)
Cook the diced potatoes for around 10
minutes or until about 3/4 way done.  In a seperate large pot combine the melted
butter and flour and mix until smooth.  Then place over low heat and gradually
stir in the half and half.  Continue to stir until smooth and the liquid begins to thicken.
I also bumped up the heat a little so I
could get the sauce to thicken.  Now add in your Velveeta cheese cubes and stir
until all melted together.  Head back over to your pototoes and drain them, then
add to your soup sauce.  Stir in your pepper, garlic powder, hot sauce and salt
here tasting after adding to make sure your soup is spot on to your liking!
Cover and cook over low hear for 30 minutes stirring occasionally.
When ready to serve, have your bacon
crumbled in a bowl, shredded cheddar cheese and chopped chives all ready to add in!
~Now, sit back, relax and enjoy~
