How to Make Baked Potato Soup


  • 1Skin your baked potatoes and chunk the insides; set aside.
  • 2In a large sauce pot, melt butter & saute your onions until translucent. Add your flour and stir to make a roux. Gradually add chicken stock, water and cornstarch.Stir add mashed potato flakes & spices. Bring everything to a boil and reduce heat; simmer 5 mins.
  • 3Add your chunked potatoes and half n' half to the pot.. bring to a boil once more; reduce heat and simmer 5-10 mins.
  • 4If your soup is too thick just add stock to thin it out.
