Recipe Thursday #19: Baked Potato Soup

No, I didn't forget that today is Thursday! I apologize for my tardiness - Costco was calling. Here's today's recipe. I made this last week for only the second time and it made me realize I need to make it more often during the coming cold months. Yes, they are coming, hopefully soon. Any-who, this one is super yummy!

Baked Potato Soup


  • 4 cups peeled and diced potatoes (russet or gold work well)
  • 1/3 cup minced onion
  • 1 cup ham, diced and cooked (optional)
  • 2 - 14oz cans low sodium chicken broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 5 Tbsp butter
  • 5 Tbsp flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • Toppings: shredded cheese, sour cream, bacon bits, chives


  1. In a large stockpot, mix potatoes, onion, ham, chicken broth, salt, and pepper
  2. Bring to a boil and cook over medium heat 10-15 minutes or until potatoes are tender
  3. In small saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat
  4. Slowly add flour to melted butter, stirring with a whisk to prevent lumps
  5. Stir constantly for 1 minute or until thickened
  6. Slowly add milk to butter/flour mixture, stirring constantly to prevent lumps
  7. Cook over medium-low heat 4-5 minutes, stirring continuously
  8. Slowly stir mixture into stockpot
  9. Then cook soup for additional 5-10 minutes to heat thoroughly
  10. Serve hot - garnished with cheese, sour cream, bacon bits, and chives
