Baked Potato Soup

I love soups. There is something very comforting about a nice hot bowl of soup.  But my time is limited, since I normally arrive home from work at 6:00 PM.   A recipe that is quick and easy is usually what I prepare for dinner.  I came across this one from Carnation and it has become a family favorite.

 

 

2 large or 3 medium baking potatoes, baked or microwaved

Cooked and crumbled bacon (optional)

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine

1/4 cup chopped onion

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 can (14.5 fl. oz.) chicken broth

1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk

Shredded cheddar cheese (optional)

Sliced green onions (optional)

Directions:
MELT butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 to 2 minutes or until tender. Stir in flour. Gradually stir in broth and evaporated milk. Scoop potato pulp from 1 potato (reserve potato skin); mash. Add pulp to broth mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture comes just to a boil. Dice remaining potato skin and potato(es); add to soup. Heat through. Season with salt and ground black pepper. Top each serving with bacon, cheese and green onions, if desired.

VARIATION: For a different twist to this recipe, omit the bacon, cheddar cheese and green onions. Cook 2 tablespoons shredded carrot with the onion and add 1/4 teaspoon dried dill to the soup when adding the broth. Proceed as above.

I do adjust the amount of flour, because I find this soup can get very thick.  If that happens, I add extra chicken broth.

Never make gravy in a glass baking pan on top your electric stove. Thankfully we were in the living room when it exploded. This happened during my learning to cook days.
