Baked potato soup is scrumptious and filling. A perfect supper for chilly nights from

This is one of my favorite soups ever. I have three or four potato soup recipes I make but this is the one that started my love affair with them. It is very simple, inexpensive and doesn’t take much hands on time. The bulk of the cooking time is spent baking the potatoes.

During the cooler months we eat soup at least once a week so I’m always trying new ones. I love soup because they’re always simple and made with things I always have on hand.

I love doing cafe at home nights where I whip up a soup like this baked potato soup or maybe chicken noodle soup and serve a sandwich or salad as side with a glass of sweet tea and maybe some pumpkin sweet rolls or peanut butter oatmeal cookies.

I would serve this soup with sour cream biscuits, garlic and herb butter dip biscuits, Mexican cornbread, or cloverleaf rolls.

  • 6-8 regular or 3-4 baking sized starchy potatoes
  • 1 onion , chopped
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 4 Tablespoons flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • To taste salt
  • To taste black pepper
  • Toppings such as sour cream and cheese


  1. Bake potatoes until done, set aside to cool.
  2. In a Dutch oven melt the butter over medium low heat.
  3. Add onions and cook until tender. Whisk in flour, cooking until a light golden color and the raw flour smell is gone. That usually takes about a minute.
  4. Add the milk, whisking constantly to help prevent lumps. Add the chicken broth.
  5. Cook for about twenty minutes making sure it doesn’t come to a boil.
  6. Peel the potatoes and cut into bite sized chunks. Add the potatoes to the pot and cook until soup is heated thoroughly.
  7. Season to taste and thicken if desired by mashing some of the potato chunks.
  8. Top individual servings with the extras of choice, serve with rolls or a sandwich
