Goodness that sounds good! No more soup for a while, though.
You only live once . . . but if you do it right once should be enough!

Thought I'd see how close the soup was to the one in an old C@H - different but sounds good also.

Baked Potato Soup
(Cuisine at home, June 2002, Issue 33, p. 31)

Makes: 8 Cups Total Time: 30 Minutes + Baking Rating: Intermediate

For the Baked Potaotes—
Rub with Oil and Salt:
4 medium russet potatoes (10–12 oz. each), scrubbed, dried, and pierced

For the Soup—
Saute in 4 T. Unsalted Butter:
1/2 cup yellow onion, diced

Whisk in:
1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Stir in:
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 cups whole milk
4 cups baked potato flesh, lightly mashed
2 T. chopped fresh parsley
Salt and pepper to taste

For the Garnishes—
Toss in 1 T. Olive Oil; Bake:
Skins from baked potatoes, cut into strips
Salt and pepper to taste

Prepare (Keep Separate):
4 strips bacon, diced, sauteed
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives

Preheat oven to 450° with rack in center.

Rub prepared potatoes with oil and salt (doing this in a plastic bag makes the job less messy). Bake directly on the rack for 1 hour, or until tender all the way through when pierced with a skewer. Remove potatoes from the oven, split, and serve immediately. Cool baked potatoes slightly. Scoop out and lightly mash the flesh (reserve skins); set aside.

Saute onion in melted butter until soft, about 5 minutes.

Whisk in flour; cook 2–3 minutes.

Stir in broth and milk. Cook and stir until thick, 4–5 minutes. Add potato and simmer 5 minutes; stir in parsley and seasonings.

Toss strips of potato skins in oil, salt, and pepper. Roast in 400° oven 15 minutes, or until crisp.

Prepare remaining garnishes and serve with soup.


I can sure handle having two baked tato soups!!
