Baked Potato Soup


Isn’t it funny how at 9 am in the morning I am already wondering to myself “What am I making for dinner tonight?”
It is a brisk day in February… there is still snow on the ground, the wind is blowing….and I am blessed to be in my warm home.  I think I will take the day to spend at home with my sweet little girls and make our favorite “Baked Potato Soup”.
Potatoes, cheddar cheese, milk, chicken broth, onion, carrots, celery, flour,
 salt/pepper
Prep your veggies by dicing carrots, celery and onions

 

Fry bacon in medium sized pan until done (med/high heat)

 

 
Drain on paper towel covered plate
Leave bacon renderings (grease) in pan and add veggies.
Saute veggies until tender.
Add flour to make a paste on top of veggies 
Add broth and whisk well
Add milk
Add diced potatoes
Simmer on reduced heat for 20 mins until potatoes are tender
Add Cheddar cheese
Stir well
Garnish with green onion, bacon and cheese and salt and pepper as desired

    Looks awesome. I love potato soup. I have always been searching for the perfect recipe. I have tried a few but didn't like them too much. I will definitely try this one!

    Tonight is our weekly Wednesday dinner with my parents and I am bringing your chicken enchiladas! They were so good and I'm excited to share them with the fam.

    This looks amazing–I will definitely have to try this! Thanks for sharing!

    Many blessings…

  3. This looks so yummy. I have a question though…my husband is allergic to chicken. I know…crazy! Is there anything you can think of that I could substitute for the chicken broth that would still be yummy? This allergy causes so many issues because we would eat chicken every night otherwise!

  4. I have made this soup before …I got your recipe from Women living Well. I have already made it 3 times! My family loves it! Thank You for all you recipe posts! Love them!!

  5. Looks delicious and I was going to make a Baked Potato Soup tonight too 🙂

    Tonya..sounds delicious! They will love it!!! So glad you liked the recipes!

  17. I made this for dinner tonight! My family loved it!!!! I just found your site……and I love the pictures…..and simple directions……( ie. telling me it would be about 5 minutes to saute the veggies)……….
    A week ago I followed your picture directions and made Carmel apples with my girls and nephew.
    I really love your blog……..thank you for tasty recipes and simple directions. You are a gift from The Lord!

  18. I can’t wait to try this recipe! Its on the meal plan this month.

    Sounds delicious!!! I just recently found your site and I LOVE IT!!! I made your chicken enchiladas last night and they were amazing:) I am telling all my family and friends about your wonderful website!! Keep up the good work:)

  20. Can you share how many servings this recipe will make?

  21. This recipe is fabulous! I do thicken mine a bit differently (I use the chicken broth as the base to cook my potatoes in, but then I make a thickener by taking melted butter in my saute skillet, adding 3 Tbsp. of flour, and then adding milk or broth a little at a time until I have the desired consistency. Then, I add it to my potatoes, broth, and veggies and keep doing this until it looks right to me. :)), but I ALWAYS use your recipe as my base now. 🙂 This is truly delicious! And a good dicer goes a long way in making the cutting of the veggies and potatoes quick and easy.

  22. Time Warp Wife shared this today on her Blog, Oh it looks so good, thank you for a wonderful recipe on these cold and snowy days here in NY.

  24. Excellent soup. Used half n half instead of milk…very rich and wonderful.
