Soup on Sunday: Baked Potato Soup

Hands down this is the best potato soup recipe ever! It's not low cal, but it is delicious on a cold winter's day.

1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1-2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon pepper
5 cups vegetable broth
4-5 large potatoes, baked, peeled and cubed
1 cup half-and-half cream
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (Tabasco)
Shredded Cheddar cheese
Minced fresh parsley

In a stockpot sauté onion and garlic until tender. Stir in flour, salt, basil and pepper; mix well. Gradually add broth. Bring to boil; boil and stir for 2 minutes. Add baked potatoes, cream and hot pepper sauce; heat through but do not boil. Garnish with cheese and parsley.

Potato soup is one of my family favorites. We've been hooked on the Nordstrom Cafe recipe lately but this one appeals to me because of the Tabasco. I love the texture of potato soup when the potatoes are baked instead of boiled. I can't wait to give this one a try.

I just finished a bowl of this soup and it was amazing! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

*I wanted it a bit thicker so I added a couple spoonfuls of instant mashed potato flakes and it did the trick.

This is my first time commenting online EVER---that's how good this soup is! Love the pepper sauce. To make it even more decadent, garnish with chopped scallions and crumbles of bacon. Thank you, Tre

this soup is the best potato soup ever. i used thyme instead of the basil, and milk (whole) instead of the cream. i was skeptical about the tabasco, but i couldn't believe how it rounded the soup out. fantastic- thanks for an awesome recipe!
