Steps to prepare sweet potato soup

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Baked potatoes should be cut into small cubes and set aside.
  3. Melt butter over medium heat in a big pot. To make a roux, add the flour and stir continuously for 1–2 minutes.
  4. Gradually add the milk and heavy cream to the roux, stirring constantly to prevent lumps. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Add the potatoes, sour cream, green onions, salt, and pepper to the pot. Stir well.
  6. Using a hand-held blender, blend the soup until it’s smooth and creamy (alternatively, transfer the soup to a blender in batches and blend until smooth).
  7. After the soup is finished cooking, add the cheddar cheese, and bacon, and stir until the cheese has melted.
  8. Serve the soup in bowls, topped with additional green onions, cheddar cheese, and bacon.
