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

"I've never had baked potato soup, this one seemed easy enough for my class to make. It was thick and creamy but lacking seasoning. If I make it again I would add more to it. The cheese and bacon topping was perfect."

"This recipe my whole family loved, which is a miracle in and of itself! I was shocked that it could taste this good without any butter!! I did triple the recipe for family sized portion and I added about 1/2 cup shredded cheese to the soup itself while cooking so it melted in. I think the onions on the top really make it perfect, so don't skip that part! I also used light sour cream and it still tasted amazing."

"This soup is perfect! I've been searching for a decent potato soup recipe on this site forever and this is it! I was looking to use up some leftover ham, so I threw that in instead of bacon. Delicious! And it makes exactly 2 servings so I wasn't stuck with a bunch of leftovers (although I would have gladly eaten them!)."

"My husband loved this soup. He bragged to everyone after I made it. I think he really enjoyed the bacon. I added some bacon grease to the soup to make it more flavorful. I think next time I will do the same and add more bacon and cheese."
