2/3 cup flour
¾ tsp salt
¼ tsp white pepper

Bake potatoes at 350* for 65-75 min, cool completely
Peel, then cube, potatoes (my son heats up the skins with cheese for a snack)

In a large saucepan, melt butter, stir in flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir( this will stick and brown to the bottom, so be careful) Bring to a boil for 2 min stirring. Remove from heat. Whisk in sour cream, add potatoes, and onion.  Garnish with cheese and bacon
