Baked Potato Soup

Hi, I have one more recipe to add to your list. This is undoubtedly the best potato soup I've ever tasted. If you try this you will never look for another potato soup recipe. Not exactly low-fat but great for a once-in-a-while treat! Ready?

6 slices bacon, cut up
3 baking potatos, cubed, not peeled
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped celery
4 cups milk
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup sour cream
2 Tbs flour
2 tsp paprika
2 green onion, chopped

Cook bacon in large saucepan until crisp; crumble, set aside.
Drain, reserving 3 Tbs drippings in pan.
Add potatoes, onions, carrots and celery to drippings. Cover; cook over low heat until potatoes are tender. Stir occasionally.
Stir in milk, salt, and pepper.
Bring mixture to a boil.
In a bowl, mix sour cream, flour, and paprika.
Slowly stir in 1 cup of the hot potato mixture. Stir until creamy.
Put sour cream mix back into the soup in pot. Cook and stir until soup bubbles.
Serve with bacon pieces and green onions sprinkled on top.
