Baked Potato Soup

I found our favorite soup in an unexpected place—a children's cookbook! This creamy comfort food is not only delicious but also scaled down to make a small amount that's perfect for my husband and me. —Linda Mumm, Davenport, Iowa

    As someone said, this is a little bland. To give more flavor, I kept the drippings from frying two strips of bacon, thickened the drippings with a bit of flour then added the chicken broth. I also added a bit of the cheese into the soup. My mom loved it.

    I've never had baked potato soup, this one seemed easy enough for my class to make. It was thick and creamy but lacking seasoning. If I make it again I would add more to it. The cheese and bacon topping was perfect.

    This is my family's favorite potato soup recipe. It's so easy to make, my teenage son fixes it by himself.

    We didn't like this recipe for Baked Potato Soup. I am going back to using the recipe I have done in the past.

    This recipe my whole family loved, which is a miracle in and of itself! I was shocked that it could taste this good without any butter!! I did triple the recipe for family sized portion and I added about 1/2 cup shredded cheese to the soup itself while cooking so it melted in. I think the onions on the top really make it perfect, so don't skip that part! I also used light sour cream and it still tasted amazing.

    This soup is perfect! I've been searching for a decent potato soup recipe on this site forever and this is it! I was looking to use up some leftover ham, so I threw that in instead of bacon. Delicious! And it makes exactly 2 servings so I wasn't stuck with a bunch of leftovers (although I would have gladly eaten them!).
