Description

This is a creamy, rich, but not too heavy baked potato soup with all the fixings! What a perfect end of winter comfort food! You could also easily lighten this soup up by using low-fat milk, reduced fat sour cream and a little less bacon. But you won’t find me doing that!

Ingredients

  • 8 whole Medium Baked Potatoes
  • 6 cups Low Fat Milk
  • ⅔ cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1-½ cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese Plus Extra For Garnish
  • 1 cup Cooked, Crumbled Bacon Plus Extra For Garnish
  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • Sliced Green Onions, For Garnish

Preparation

Peel and coarsely mash the baked potatoes. (I like to leave a little bit of peel for looks and texture!)

Pour the milk into a large Dutch oven. Sprinkle the flour over the milk, whisking it in as you add it, so that there are no lumps. Heat the flour/milk mixture over medium heat, whisking occasionally, until thick and bubbly.

Turn the heat to low and add the mashed potatoes, spices, salt and pepper, cheese, sour cream and bacon bits. Cook until the cheese is melted and the soup is thoroughly heated, being careful not to boil!

Serve topped with more shredded cheese and chopped green onions and bacon bits… whatever you put on top of your baked potatoes!

Made this last night for my boyfriend, but we halved the recipe since it’s just the two of us. I used real bacon, drained on a paper towel and then crumbled up. Great recipe! Similar to the baked potato soup that my boyfriend enjoys from Safeway, but much lower in calories and grams of fat!

I made this tonight (finally) and my whole family loved it! It fed a family of 5 with a little left over. My husband had 3 bowls, though!

Made this last night, Hubby and I both give it a thumbs up. It was good, rich, robust and filling. Perfect for a very cold winter night with wind chills at -19. Thanks for sharing.

I love this soup. I had gone to O’Charley’s and had thier soup. So I wanted to make my own. I found this recipe and this was 10X better. I make it at least once a month. Thanks so much :)

Great recipe! Very creamy and filling. I boiled the potatoes because I didn’t have a lot of time but it was still great. Thanks!

This soup was DELICIOUS!!! I went pretty much by the recipe except that I added sliced onions (cooked them in the bacon grease). I’ll surely be making this again.

I made this tonight using 4 cups of whole milk and 2 cups of chicken broth. It came out very well. So creamy!

This soup was delicious and so easy to make. I didn’t have time to bake the potatoes, so I just boiled them instead. Thanks for the great recipe!
