If you have ever thought that you didn’t like potato soup, this Baked Potato Soup just might change your mind.

Baked Potato Soup

I love the simplicity of this recipe. Bake the potatoes, let them cool, scoop them out, warm the milk, combine it all and bring to a very low simmer for about 10 minutes.

The most important thing to remember with creamy soups is to avoid boiling your soup. Just stir frequently and allow it to combine and warm slowly.

I found this recipe for Baked Potato Soup many years ago, before I ever started blogging and sharing recipes online. My family loved it from the first bite.

I’ve made this soup on frequent rotation every winter since then and I’ve very happily adapted it for the slow-cooker.

Baked Potato Soup has been called a hug in a bowl. Everyone loves it!

To Bake The Potatoes

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Pierce each potato with a fork and then place on a baking sheet. Bake for approximately 1 hour, until fork tender. Cool completely.
  2. When the potatoes are cool, slice them in half and use a spoon to scoop out as much of the flesh as possible. Discard the skins and roughly mash the potatoes a few times, leaving plenty of large bite size chunks.
