Baked Potato Soup
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup flour
4 cups Half and Half
4 baked potatoes, peeled and chunked
1 cup instant mashed potatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
4 green onions, chopped
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/3 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
4 slices bacon, cooked
Chives, chopped

      Sauté onions in butter until tender, but not brown. Add flour and let brown, stirring constantly. Add 1 cup Half and Half and stir until well blended. Add remaining liquid ingredients.
      Using a potato masher or pastry blender, coarsely mash potatoes. Break bacon into pieces. Stir in potatoes, bacon and all remaining ingredients. Heat, stirring occasionally to blend in the instant potatoes and to prevent scorching. Garnish with chives.
