Baked Potato Soup Recipe

I've had lots of requests for the

Baked Potato Soup recipe

so here goes

This is easy-peasy!

6 slices bacon, fried crisp and crumbled
4 medium baked potatoes (skins on)
I cook mine in the microwave to save time
(don't forget to pierce them with a fork or you'll have a huge microwave mess to clean up)
2 Tbs butter
1/3 cup chopped green onions
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup 1/2 and 1/2
salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
sour cream
your favorite cheese (grated)...I like cheddar or co-jack
fresh chives, parsley or green onions for garnish

1. Bake potatoes, cool
(they don't have to get too cool....just cool enough to handle)
and cut in small chunks

2. In medium pan, melt margarine and sautee onions

3. Add potatoes,
chicken soup,
1/2 and 1/2,
salt and pepper to taste;
simmer until hot but do not boil

4. Ladle into 4 individual soup bowls

5. Top with grated cheese,
crumbled bacon,
a dollop of sour cream and
green garnish of your choice.


  1. mmmmmm....I think I just may have to try your soup recipe this weekend.

  2. would love to make this, but can you tell me what 1/2 and 1/2 is? I'm British and we have different names for things over here.

  3. Thanks Tammy, I shall make it for lunch tomorrow!

  4. I can't wait to try this recipe. I've been down all week with the flu and really starting to crave comfort food. This seems perfect.

  5. Hi Tammy ...Just found your sweet blog! Love the mix of food and hooking and home...enjoyed visiting and I will return...Have a great weekend, xoxo ~Kathy @ Sweet Up-North Mornings...

  6. Well, I made this very yummy recipe last night and it was a huge hit! The only changes I made were for my daughter, who is a vegetarian. I substituted cream of celery for the cream of chicken and vegetable broth for the chicken broth. The bacon was served on the side for anybody who wanted it. Needless to say, there was NO leftovers for my lunch today, and it was pegged as a keeper by everyone! lol
