Baked Potato Soup

Baked Potato Soup

Pop some potatoes into the oven and soon you have the foundation for a yummy hearty soup.  I love soup for so many reasons – they feed many, they come in so many flavors and the leftovers freeze wonderfully for a future meal.

  1. 6 large potatoes
  2. 8 pieces of turkey bacon, cooked and diced
  3. 1 Tbsp garlic salt
  4. 1 tsp onion powder
  5. 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper or to taste
  6. 4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth
  7. 3/4 cup of milk - I used unsweetened almond milk
  8. Cheddar Cheese
  9. Sour Cream
  10. Green Onions, diced
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Scrub potatoes and dry. Wrap each in foil and puncture with sharp knife a couple of times.
  3. Place directly on rack in heated oven.
  4. Bake for 1 hour. Sharp knife should go in easily.
  5. Carefully remove foil and let sit for 30 minutes to cool a bit.
  6. Peel 4 of the potatoes and cut into large pieces.
  7. Cut the 2 other potatoes into small pieces and set aside. Leave the skins on.
  8. Place 2 cups of the broth into blender and add 1/2 of the peeled cooked potatoes. Blend to smooth consistency. Repeat with other half of potatoes and broth. Add some water if more liquid is needed. Place this into a large pot on stove.
  9. Add in the baked potato pieces, milk, garlic salt, onion powder and cayenne powder. Cook on low-medium until warm and spices are incorporated.
  10. Ladle into bowl and top with bacon, cheddar cheese, sour cream and green onions.

 Sometimes a potato isn’t just a potato.  It is a smooth, creamy warm bowl of deliciousness.


What is your favorite kind of soup?



  1. Yummy, we both made soups this weekend ♥

  2. This sounds like it would be so warm and comforting, not to mention delicious.

    Wishes for tasty dishes.

  3. Hi Debbie! I’m stopping in from Let’s Get Real today. I like how this soup recipe comes together. My daughter is wanting less and less meat in her meals so I’m on the lookout for good recipes to try with her. She is 8 and doesn’t have a sophisticated sense of taste yet, so this potato soup recipe will likely be a hit with her. And those of us us who are more sophisticated (LOL!) will love it as well.

    • Hi Christina – Thanks for stopping by. I hope your daughter and family enjoy the soup and if it meets the approval of an 8-year-old that will be high praise.
