I love this soup!


*For a spicy version, add chopped hot peppers along with the onion.

How to make Baked Potato Soup:

4 large baking potatoes
10 strips of peppered bacon
2/3 cup butter
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 medium onion, chopped
7 cups milk
1 cup cheese, shredded (cheddar or pepper jack or whatever you like!)
8 ounces sour cream
3/4 teaspoon seasoned salt

Bake potatoes; cool, peel, and cut up. While potatoes are baking, fry bacon. Cool and crumble.

In a large soup pot, melt butter. Add flour and chopped onion. Once butter/flour/onion mixture thickens and bubbles, add the milk, cheese, sour cream, potatoes, and seasoned salt. Simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in crumbled bacon. Serve immediately.

Note: If you use regular bacon, add 1/2 teaspoon of coarse ground pepper. Or, add some coarse ground pepper even if you do use peppered bacon. As much as I love this soup, this soup loves pepper!

    I think I’ll just pop over for lunch today. Is there any fresh bread/rolls to go with that? And what’s for dessert? :lol:

    This looks delicious, and with some of your biscuits, I think I’d just slip happily into a buttery coma!!

    That looks so good. Nothing like hot homemade soup on a cold winter’s day!

    Perfect for the weather we’re having. Of course this means I actually have to cook it . . .

    I have my bowl and spoon :hungry: That looks so delicious. YUM-YUM. I want to know why my finished product never looks as good as yours? :lol: I swear I gain 10 pounds just looking at your food. :wall: How do you stay so slender? I am looking foeward to trying this recipe though. Don’t even care if it’s fattening. Have a great day and :hug: and good eating to all.

    Kim, how about sour cream cornmeal biscuits and some chocolate pudding cake? :mrgreen:

    Mmmm…great idea! A perfect winter meal if there ever was one.

    I’m in, Suzanne! Yum!

    BTW, I’ve made the chocolate pudding cake several times now. Mom has a recipe that is similar, except hers takes 1/2 cup of melted butter. Ugh. I get a gall stone/bladder attack just thinking of it. LOL.

    Anyway, I’ve actually made a couple of modifications to your recipe, in the attempt to be a bit healthier. I use whole wheat flour (1 cup) and increase the baking powder to 3 teaspoons, and I halve the sugar in both the cake and the topping. (I prefer a very dark chocolate taste, not particularly sweet.) I also found that I had to add a bit more milk, maybe 2/3 cup instead of the 1/2 cup, and I also add a little bit more hot water over all. (I found mine too dry otherwise. What can I say? I’m not great in the kitchen!)

    Actually, I made some last night; it was good!

    This sounds really good, but when do you add in the baked potatoes? I would like to give it a try.

    Hi, Nancy! Drat, how did I leave that out? LOL. I fixed it now–you add the potatoes in with the milk and cheese, etc. Thank you!

    Of course you would give out a wonderful recipe like that when we’re without a stove, kitchen sink and cabinets! We had a pipe burst in the kitchen. :fryingpan: I wrote it down for later! :hungry:

    That looks sooooooooo good… especially after being forced to eat greasy buffet food every night on my trip! Thank God it was just for a weekend! Give me some homecooked veggies!!!

    If you’re ever in Charleston, check out Taylor Books’ soup. Their potato leek soup is my fave!

    I just wanted to say if this soup is as good as the chocolate pudding cake…I am going to gain a few pounds hanging out here with you. Good company will make me forget about the calories. Thanks for the recipe!

    It looks scruptious. Back in the day I used to make potato soup but now that I usually only cook for two… I just don’t know how to make a small pot of soup lol.

    This is almost exactly the recipe my mom would make on a cool/cold day, only difference, “peppered bacon” did not happen in this household “back in the day”. Thanks for helping me remember a memory. :shimmy:

    OMG, at first glance, seeing that pepper, it freaked me out, thinking I accidently clicked on the frog eggs again. on the water page. LOL LOL LOL
    All kidding aside, this soup looks soooo good and I plan to try it.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
