Baked Potato Soup Recipe

Baked Potato Soup Recipe

A NEIGHBOR brought over her children's cookbook to show us, and I discovered this recipe for our favorite soup in it! Not only is it delicious, but it's easy to prepare and makes a small amount perfect for my husband and me. It tastes like "restaurant" soup but is lower in fat. -Linda Mumm, Davenport, Iowa
