Baked Potato Soup | Taste and Tell

Photo Updated January 2013

It looks like it’s potato week here on Taste and Tell – this is my second potato dish this week!

I usually blog about just about everything I make.  But lately – I blame it on the pregnancy – I’ve been a bit lazy.  Especially over the holidays.  Our meals were quite simple and nothing to really write about – just needing to get something on the table.  This potato soup was one dish that I made – having no intentions to blog about it.  It’s just a simple potato soup, after all.  But after one bite of it, I knew I needed to blog about it. This was delicious!!  And it was incredibly easy, fast and comforting.

I love it when the most unexpected dishes end up being the best ones!!

A simple baked potato soup recipe, perfect for a cold night.
Serves: 4 servings
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 (14.5oz) can chicken broth
  • 1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
  • 2 large or 3 medium baking potatoes, baked or microwaved
  • cooked and crumbled bacon, for serving
  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until tender. Stir in the flour. Gradually whisk in the broth and the evaporated milk.
  2. Scoop the potato pulp from one of the cooked potatoes; mash. Add the pulp to the broth mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, just until mixture comes to a boil. Dice the remaining potatoes (with skins) and add to soup. Heat through. Season with salt and pepper. Top each serving with crumbled bacon.

    This is HORRIBLE but makes this even better I promise…cook your bacon in the oven at 400 for about 12 minutes or until crispy…the grease will be clean and clear..liquid gold..use this instead of the butter…wooaaahh mama!

    I made this last night and added shredded cheddar and green onions to it. The green onions gave it a really nice spicy kick. A great soup!
