I don't know about where you all live....but here it has been COLD!!! Like, crazy cold! The well-below freezing temps had made for some perfect soup nights, and I thought I would share my favorite soup recipe with you tonight.
Baked Potato Soup!
I have been making this recipe for so long I don't even remember where I got it from :) I love it because its cheap to make, everyone enjoys it, and I have most of the ingredients in my food storage (besides the potatoes ;) Its quick and simple, and sure to satisfy your whole family! Oh, one note, I ALWAYS double this recipe! We always end up with leftovers, but if I don't we don't have enough for all 6 of us :)
Here's what you need:
¼ c. butter
¼ c. chopped onion
¼ c. flour
14 oz can chicken broth
1 can evaporated milk
3 large baked potatoes
Salt and pepper
Before I get started, I just poke my potatoes with a fork a few times and put in the microwave to bake. By the time all the other steps are done the potatoes are cooked and cooled enough to go!
Melt butter in medium saucepan. Add onion and sauté until tender. Stir in flour, and then add broth and milk. Scoop pulp from one potato and mash; add to soup. Bring to boil and then add the rest of the potatoes (scoop the pulp and cut into cubes).
Top with cheese, sour cream and green onions...then ENJOY!!!
With homemade rolls fresh out of the oven, this is the ultimate comfort meal! If you try it out let me know how you like it!!
