Tasty Tuesday . Potato Soup

Posted by Claudia Moser on 11:19 AM in ,


4 baking potatoes (about 2 1/2 pounds)
2/3 cup all-purpose flour (about 3 ounces)
6 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
1 cup (4 ounces) reduced-fat shredded extrasharp cheddar cheese, divided
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
3/4 cup chopped green onions, divided
6 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
Cracked black pepper (optional)


Preheat oven to 400°.
Pierce potatoes with a fork; bake at 400° for 1 hour or until tender. Cool. Peel potatoes; coarsely mash.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Place flour in a large Dutch oven; gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk until blended. Cook over medium heat until thick and bubbly (about 8 minutes). Add mashed potatoes, 3/4 cup cheese, salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper, stirring until cheese melts. Remove from heat.
Stir in sour cream and 1/2 cup onions. Cook over low heat 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated (do not boil). Ladle 1 1/2 cups soup into each of 8 bowls. Sprinkle each serving with 1 1/2 teaspoons cheese, 1 1/2 teaspoons onions, and about 1 tablespoon bacon. Garnish with cracked pepper, if desired.

Your soup looks amazing!I,ll make it in winter!Have a great day Claudia!

Kartoffelsuppe habe ich schon als Kind nie gemocht, und bis heute ist es auch so geblieben, dennoch schaut es lecker aus und ist sicher doch mal einen Versuch wert...

Lieben Gruß

Looks delicious!

That soup certainly looks delicious my friend! I have copied it out to make in the winter. Hope you and Peter are both okay. Have been thinking of you and your loss of dear Naila.

Mmmm, that looks good! It will have to wait a little bit though as summer has just made a bit of a comeback here and I like soups in Autumn/Winter ;-)

So, when are you coming to the UK for tea and treats then?

Have a lovely evening xo

I love potato soup, thanks for the recipe. Wishing you a great week!

@Dimi - you are right, winter is the perfect season, but now it starts to get cooler and a warm soup helps!
@Cloudy - ein Versucht ist immer wert :)

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
