Baked Potato Soup Recipe


This baked potato soup recipe is a hearty winter favorite that is both substantial and oh so yummy. It is a great way to use up any leftover baked potatoes. Topped with enticingly aromatic bacon and sinewy, savory cheese this creamy soup is sure to bring the most finicky eater to the dinner table.

Baked potato soup is filling enough to be the star of any meal. Some suggested accompaniments are cornbread or for lighter fare, a nice crisp salad.

Baked Potato Soup


4 large baking potatoes
2/3 cup butter

4 green onions, chopped
12 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 1/4 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded

2. Melt butter in heavy saucepan over low heat; add flour, stirring until smooth.

3. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add milk, stirring over medium heat until thick and bubbly.

4. Add potato pulp, salt and pepper, 2 tablespoons of the green onion, 1/2 cup bacon and 1 cup cheese.
