~What's Cooking Wednesdays~ Baked Potato Soup?

I have found some new blogs to follow from last Follow Friday and Mom Bloggers Club, and one of them has some new, neat memes(?)! I thought it would be great to join Jess @ "It's All About Savings" for her "What's Cooking Wednesdays"! She is sharing healthy, time saving and cost saving recipes and hopes others will share too!
I may not have a recipe I have tried every week, chances are they will be ones I have done in the past or want to try! =) But I look forward to having a new recipe to share on my blog every week! Hope you will join in on the fun!

Yesterday I made some potato soup from a recipe from some friends, but as usual I "tweaked" it up a bit and and made this:

(Could be called) "Baked Potatoe Soup"
2 quarts of home canned potatoes (peeled and chopped) with water (I am guessing it would be 6 medium size potatoes)
1 stick of butter
1/4 c. minced onion
1/2 tsp. salt
about 1 c. Velveeta cheese
2 c. milk
5 tbsp. flour
In a large cooking pan, bring potatoes, water, onions and butter to a boil. When potatoes are soft, add cheese and salt. When cheese is melted, add the flour and milk mixture. Cook till soup is preferred thickness.
Serve topped with bacon, sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese.
