Baked Potato Cheddar Soup


We have been get a lot of snow here in Iowa. I love to have soup and bread when it is cold out to help warm me up. One of my favorite soup is Potato Soup anytime I go out to restaurants and I want soup I always order potato soup. So I searched for a great recipe for Potato Soup.

One of my favorite recipe websites is Taste of Home.  They have recipes for everything you can imagine. I found a recipe for Baked Potato Cheddar Soup that sounded really good and not to hard to make.

Baked Potato Cheddar Soup

Baked Potato Cheddar Soup


  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 large potatoes, baked, peeled and coarsely mashed (1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions, divided
  • Crumbled cooked bacon, optional


  • In a large saucepan, whisk flour and milk until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the potatoes, 1/3 cup cheese, salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • Remove from the heat. Stir in sour cream and 1/4 cup onions until blended. Cover; cook over medium heat for 10-12 minutes or until heated through (do not boil). Garnish with remaining cheese, onions and, if desired, bacon. Yield: 4 servings.

The potato soup is really good the only thing that really took any time was baking and peeling the potatoes. I also made Rhodes Frozen Dinner Rolls, put them in a muffin pan and let them rise and baked them as instructed on the packaging.



  1. Yum this sounds so good and it sounds like it would be the perfect meal for a cold day 🙂 I can’t wait to try it!

  2. I should make this today~ It is cold and snowy here and I feel frozen to the bone and in need of comfort.

  3. Oh wow, I’m almost falling over this sounds sooo good! It is perfect fall weather to make this. I bake extra potatoes (white and sweet) on the grill, wrapped in foil, so I have them for recipes during the week. Even if not, this recipe is worth it. I can’t wait!!!! to make this!!!!
