In A Food Mood: Soup Is Good Food

Baked Potato Soup

Our family will be having this soup sometime this week. Not only is it fairly fast to assemble, it's hearty, filling, and cheap!

2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 lg. onion, chopped
1 can chicken broth, plus one can water
3 large potatoes
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup milk

Peel and dice potatoes. Cover them with water and boil until tender. Drain and set aside. Melt butter in dutch oven (large, deep pot) over low heat. Whisk in flour til smooth. Cook, whisking constantly for one minute. Stir in onion and cook for two minutes or until tender. Add chicken broth and water. Stir. Simmer. Add potatoes that were cooked, salt and pepper. Stir in milk. Cook until heated through.

Serve with shredded cheese, crumbled bacon bits, a dollop of sour cream, sliced green onions, etc.
Pin It!

Can't wait to try this recipe. I made your Tarheel Pie and Cranberry Pecan Relish during the Holidays and my family loved them. Thanks! Karen

I'm thinking a can of corn and some chopped green pepper might add to this recipe...

Hi Marybeth,
Just made the Baked Potato Soup. It was great! I had my own chicken broth and was wondering what size the can of broth you use in your recipe- big or little? :)
