Pampered Chef Loaded Potato Chowder

This is the recipe Lorri made tonight!

Preheat: --
Category: Main dish, Potatoes, Chowder, Soup, Microwave

3 large Baking potatoes
3 1/2 c. Milk (I used skim)
4 oz. Cream cheese, softened
2 T. Butter
2-3 Green onions (I used three)
4 oz. Sharp cheddar cheese
1 1/2 t. Salt
1/2 t. Ground black pepper

1. Cut potatoes into quarters. Microwave for 10 minutes and check for doneness. Rotate potatoes and microwave for another 10 minutes.

2. While potatoes are microwaving, beat milk and cream cheese together in one bowl; grate the cheese and chop the green onions.

3.  When potatoes are soft, mash, leaving mostly bite-size chunks of potato.  Add the remaining ingredients until thoroughly hot. 

4.  (you realize now, that I'm making up these directions... to get actual directions, buy the cookbook! lol) Serve with optional cooked bacon, sour cream and/or steamed broccoli florets.

I think the sour cream really made this soup great!
