Ingredients
  1. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  2. 1 tablespoon flour
  3. 3 1/2 cups low-fat milk
  4. 4 russet potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes (think 1.4 inch)
  5. 1/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  6. 1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
  7. bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional, but adds taste if you add it prior to serving)
Instructions
  1. 1. Heat butter in a large saucepan over medium heat until melted.
  2. 2. Add flour, whisking until brown.
  3. 3. Next, slowly add milk, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil.
  4. 4. Add potatoes, reduce heat. Stir often, letting sit 15-20 minutes before adding cheese and sour cream.
  5. 5. Let sit another 5 minutes to thicken.
  6. 6. Serve with cheese and bacon ontop, if desired.
Notes
  1. I like to add some bacon prior and stirring it in. It gives it a more salty taste doing so.
