Ready in 1 hour

This is the best potato soup I have ever had. I got this recipe from a restaurant I used to work at called Hi Way Pizza.

8 large Baking potatoes; baked
1/2 gallon Whole milk
2/3 cup Flour
3/4 stick Butter
3 tablespoons Dry chicken broth
Pepper; To taste
1 pound Bacon; chopped and cooked crisp or only enough to use as garnish

Shredded cheese; as garnish

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



Bake Potatoes. This can be done in advance. Scoop center out of potatoes.

Simmer milk in large stock pot until bubbling, stirring often. Be careful not to scald.

In a separate pan, melt butter. Add flour, mix well to create a roux.

Add butter/flour mixture to milk. Wisk if necessary and bring up to a boil until it is as thick as you desire.

Add dry chicken broth and pepper.

Add potatoes to the soup.

Serve in bowls topped with shreadded cheese. Put under broiler until cheese is melted. Top with a layer of bacon and sour cream.


I find that the cheese and sour cream is unnecessary since it is a very rich soup already. I chop and fry up a pound of bacon very crisp and then add it to the soup at the end. I just find it is easier that way.
