What You Need

  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 6 tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 10 cups whole milk
  • 1 tbsp. Mulate’s Cajun Seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 slices crisp-cooked bacon
  • 4 oz. sour cream

How It’s Done

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Rinse and dry the potatoes. Wrap them individually in aluminum foil and bake them for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Then, take them out of the oven, unwrap them and slice them in half. Scoop the potatoes out of their skin and put them into a medium bowl. You can discard the skins.

In a large soup pot, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add flour, stirring constantly with a whisk. Once the flour is dissolved, cook for about 3 minutes while stirring constantly. Now, raise the heat to medium; add milk, 2 cups at a time, still stirring constantly. Cook for about 15 minutes, until thick. Reduce heat to medium low and add the potatoes, dry seasoning, 2 tbsp. green onions, and 1 and a 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese. Crumble the bacon and add to soup, reserving 1 tbsp. Mix until well blended. Stir in sour cream. Serve using remaining green onions, cheese and bacon as garnish. Serves about 8 as an appetizer. And if you don’t feel like cooking, take them to Mulate’s!
