Baked Potato Soup
6 T. butter
2 c. onion, finely chopped
4 T. flour
2 cups chicken broth
6 medium potatoes, cut into bites size pieces
1 package of bacon, only cook half.
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
2 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. garlic salt
2 c. half-and-half
*If you don't have Half-and-Half, you can substitute Whole Mike or 2% in.
Cheddar cheese, sour cream, bacon, and green onions.
Melt butter in a saucepan on medium heat. Add onion and saute for 2 minutes. Sprinkle flour over onions and cook a couple minutes. Then, add in chicken broth. Once the broth is added in & mixed with onions, Add potatoes, salt, pepper, basil, and garlic salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a medium/low for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in half-and-half (or Milk) and heat through.
With the bacon, I always cook half a package. Then I crumble it up & add it into the soup, rather then just on top. I also always double this recipe.
