This is real comfort food, not diet food! The flavors of the creamy sauce with the baked potatoes are married together so well that it's hard to put down. I prefer to put the crumbled bacon and cheese on top of the soup because it adds another layer of flavor, but you like yours combined, it may be done that way also.
"Except for the fact that I scorched it, this soup was pretty good and relatively easy to make. If you are wondering how much it makes, let me just say don't bother doubling it unless you're feeding an army! I am accustomed to doubling recipes for my family of nine, so I tried it with the soup. I ended up not able to fit all of the potatoes into my 7 quart dutch oven, and I had a TON of leftover soup! Making the recipe as is would have been just fine!"- Sioleabha

Top-ranked recipe named "Country Baked Potato Soup"
Bake potato's at 350 degrees for 65-75 minutes or until tender; cool completely. Peel and cube potato's into 1" cubes. You want it to be chunky, but some will break up. In a large Dutch Oven, melt butter; stir in flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. If you want it thicker, mash a few potato's against the side of the pot and stir, and it will thicken right up. Remove from heat; whisk in sour cream. Add potato's and green onions. Place back on stove and heat to serving temperature over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Ladle into bowl and garnish with bacon and cheese, and get ready to say WOW!.
This soup is a good consistency when initially made, but if you have leftovers, it will thicken in the fridge. When reheating, if the consistency is too thick for you, add a little milk to get it the way you like it. It tastes just as good the next day!

Runtro 2 years agoThis soup is good. I would not use as much milk next time. My soup was too runny even after I mashed the potatoes up in it. It had a good flavor to it.
KDcook 2 years agoYUMMY!! Used Lactaid milk for family, oven roasted the potatoes, added a few sprigs of rosemary to milk and it was awesome! Especially when topped with shredded cheese and bacon bits. Thank you for the recipe. My family loves it.
katalina 2 years agoIt was very good. I made a few changes: reduced the amount of white pepper big time, 1 Tbsp is too much for my taste, omitted the butter and reserved some of the bacon drippings instead. Reduced the sour cream to 1/2 c. Added a bit of gorgonzola cheese...yum!
Kjcogan 2 years agoVery good recipe. Family loved it and I have picky children. I added lots of green onions and a dab of sour cream to garnish. This is a keeper recipe!!
Matwood82 2 years agoVery good - I cut bacon into laniards, and fried them in the pot first (removed w/ slotted spoon and put back in w/ potatoes and green onions), then backed off the butter to compensate for the extra flavor from the bacon drippings.
Goolsbya1 2 years agoVery good but I feel it needs to be cheesier. Any suggestions??
gingerb78 2 years agoYum! This was easy and quick! My family loved it. I was short on time so I peeled, chopped and boiled the potatoes instead of baking them. Turned out great though!
Pueblok719 2 years agoThis was real good once I made it with lactose free milk!!! Definitely worth it.
Flipper52 3 years agoThis was very easy and good. It made a good amount. I peeled, diced, and boiled the potatoes instead of baking. It's just easier to me.
