Quick & Easy Baked Potato Soup

Note:  This Quick & Easy Baked Potato Soup is a throwback recipe from last winter, but it’s good all year long!

The weather outside is frightful and this is my go-to soup when I’m in a hurry, when it’s cold outside, or just plain anytime.  It’s comfort in a bowl.

My recipe for quick & easy baked potato soup is inspired by a recipe I saw in Southern Living last year.  I was intrigued by the frozen steam-and-mash potatoes – no peeling and cubing potatoes.  I ditched my old potato soup recipe in favor of this one.  It’s that good.

I also like the how easy it is to prepare.  I usually double it and I’ve even quadrupled it for a soup and salad party.  My family likes it topped with shredded cheese, crumbled bacon and chives.

Quick & Easy Baked Potato Soup
 
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 extra-large chicken bouillon cube
  • 1 (24-oz.) package frozen steam-and-mash potatoes
  • 2 cups milk
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • Toppings: cooked and crumbled bacon, shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, sliced green onions
Instructions
  1. Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat; add onion and garlic, and cook, stirring often, 5 to 10 minutes or until golden.
  2. Sprinkle onion mixture with flour, and stir until coated. Stir in bouillon cube and 3 cups water. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring often. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, microwave potatoes according to package directions. (Do not add butter or milk.) Stir potatoes, milk, and pepper into onion mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes or until thickened. Serve with desired toppings! Note: I add a little freshly grated nutmeg about one minute before it's finished cooking.

    Alli,
    I just pulled some of your soups and we will make one soon. The sweet potato looks good and the potato soup. Sounds so good with the frozen potatos
    Thanks for all the good soup. We make cornbread from Jiffy and doctor it up with a can of corn, chille peppers, cheese and it makes the soup better.
