Country Baked Potato Soup

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.

I halved the recipie, and it was fantastic, even with my lack of culinary skills! I would only suggest using less sour cream; even 1/4 cup seemed to overpower the other flavors.

110% not a diet soup!! If i could rate it more than 5 stars I would! I had some trouble with adding the milk and not letting it burn, but luckily my mom was willing to help me. I ended up mashing the potatoes in with an old fashioned potato mashed and it made much smaller pieces AND thickened the soup. All in all a fantastic recipe

Super good for a winter soup, little too much white pepper.

A little bland, I was so excited about this soup and a bit let down by all the good reviews. Without the cheese and bacon it would have been much worse though. Maybe I will make it again and add some extra seasoning to it...

Very good recipe. I think next time I will cut back a little on the pepper. I also topped with chives and added carrots and celery to the soup mix. Overall, the family liked!

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!

Excellent! Not too peppery for our family. My 20 month old son liked it too. I was looking for a great recipe of this and we have found it. Thanks!

I halved the recipe; I forgot to add the sour cream, and it was still tasty!

I halved the recipe. Subbed scallions for green onions and cooked in butter before adding the flour. It was a little strong on the sour cream for my personal taste but the family loved it.

My whole family loves potato soup. ... We may even be potato soup snobs! This is by far the best, and the fastest potato soup I've ever made. The whole family raved! This will go in the "family favorites" recipe box!!!

I made this tonight. Fantastic. I also added some simmered diced celery, onion and carrots. Reduced the white pepper just a tad. But I would definitely make this again.

I added more bacon in the soup, nice and thick and worked well as leftovers!

This is a classic and excellent recipe that I have been using for years. For a chunkier version though I use Yukon Gold potatoes which hold their shape much better under cooking.

Loved this recipe. Made it exactly as stated. Wouldn't changea thing. Even got raves from our seventeen-year-old who would often rather eat out than eat homecooking. Worth the timeit took to make it. We'll see howitholds up for left-overs;)

I made this for dinner last night, and it was just delightful. It was a hit at the dinner table! I used a little less pepper than the recipe calls for, and I still found it a touch too peppery. However, others at the table added more pepper to theirs, so clearly it's up to one's taste. Thanks for sharing such a winner!

Rave reviews from the hubby and kids! I slightly modified the recipe to have equal amounts of milk, half and half, and chicken stock. When making your roux (butter/flour mixture) make sure to cook it for several minutes until it is just browned. This will not only act as the thickening agent, but will add a nice flavor as well.
