In a large soup kettle, melt the butter. Stir in flour; heat and stir until smooth. Gradually add milk. Heat, stirring constantly, until thickened.
Add potatoes. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly (you may need to add water.) Reduce heat; simmer for 10 minutes or until you are satisfied with the consistency.
Add sour cream and heat through.
Serve immediately, topped with cheese, bacon and green onions.
