In the Kitchen: Baked Potato Soup Recipe

These days I don't have a ton of energy, so I've been trying to cook more meals that are simple. One of my go-to's is potato soup. It's quick, cheap, reheats well, and tastes yummy. If you'd like to make some you'll need to:
  • boil 2 medium red potatoes
After potatoes are done (check by sticking fork inside to see if they are tender), turn to low heat and:
  • add 50/50 mixture of heavy whipping cream and chicken (or vegetable) stock until potatoes are covered
  • use a masher to mash ingredients (I like to leave a lot of lumps)
  • add salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste
  • 1/2 tbsp of butter
  • 1/4 tbsp of bacon grease (optional)
  • stir while the soup cooks for 5 mins.
  • when done add shredded cheddar cheese (I like Tillamook brand) and chopped green onions to taste
serving size: 1



  1. So now I am hungry!! that looks fantastic!!

  2. Mmmm... now you're making me hungry! I might omit the bacon grease, but I'm sure that's what makes this soup tasty ;-) Must try this!

  3. I hope you enjoy it. The bacon grease adds a pleasant additional layer of flavor, but I can enjoy the soup without it.
