Baked Potato Soup Recipe

This is the baked potato soup recipe. I just have to say that everyone should try the soup. You can add as many ingredients as you think is appropriate.

For example, you can cook 1 or 2 slices of bacon, chop them into small pieces and add them to the soup. If you want a healthier version, just add your favorite vegetables like carrots or yams. You can create your own recipe with the basic soup. 

Here is the recipe below:

Cooking Time:
1 hour and 10 minutes

Servings: 6 to 8


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 3 (large) baking potatoes
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup onion (chopped)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • salt (about 1/2 tsp salt)
  • pepper (to taste)

Soup with potatoes


  1. First, preheat the oven to 350°F (177° C).

  2. Rinse potatoes and remove any green or dark spot.

  3. Then, pierce the potatoes with a fork 7 or 8 times and bake potatoes for 1 hour or until tender.

  4. Meanwhile, in a large pot, add butter, garlic, and onion and cook over low-medium heat for about 6 to 10 minutes or until the onion is soft.

  5. Then, slowly, add the flour, the milk, the chicken broth and Cheddar cheese, and stirring until all ingredients are blended. 

  6. Cook over low-medium heat for about 10 minutes or until it thickens.

  7. When potatoes are ready, let them cool, then peel them and cut into small cubes.

  8. Finally, to complete the baked potato soup recipe add the potatoes, salt and pepper to the soup and cook over low heat for 7 or 10 minutes or until cheese melts.

Optional: Sprinkle with shredded Cheddar cheese on top.


There is a very important step that should not be skipped. As soon as you add the flour, the milk, the chicken broth and cheese, it is necessary to let the sauce thicken. If you cook it on low heat for a longer time, it's possible for the sauce to never get thickened. When you see the sauce "bubbling", then you can reduce the heat and let it simmer on low for about 8 to 10 minutes.

Other toppings:

Some sour cream
What about adding some turkey bacon bits? Toppings are the perfect final touch to many recipes. Adding bacon bits or sour cream to this soup is a sure way to turn a "picky soup eater"  into a soup lover. So be prepared, because it's possible that your family or friends will ask you to cook the soup more often.
