"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Directions:
Add bacon, chicken stock, potatoes and onion in the bowl of a large slow cooker and stir to combine. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high 3-4 hours until tender & cooked through. Once the soup is ready, cook butter in a small saucepan on the stove over medium-high heat until melted. Whisk in the flour until it is completely combined and then cook for 1 minute stirring occasionally. Gradually add in the evaporated milk while whisking it together with the flour mixture and continue whisking until the mixture is completely smooth. Let the mixture continue cooking until it reaches a simmer, stirring occasionally and gets really thick. Immediately, poor the milk mixture into the slow cooker and stir until combined. Add in cheddar, sour cream, salt & pepper until combined.

Personal Notes:
I like the soup better without the 1 c. of cheese in it. I like to top the soup with cheese instead.
