  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 quarts milk

  1. Heat oven to 450F degrees and bake the potatoes until fork tender (1 hour). Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Slowly blend in flour with a wire whisk until thoroughly blended, making a roux. Gradually add milk to the butter-flour mixture, whisking constantly. Whisk in salt and pepper and simmer over low heat, stirring constantly.
