    Baked Potato Soup Baked Potato Soup

    This soup is sure to warm you up on a cold day.

    1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
    1/4 cup chopped onion
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1 can (14 1/2 oz.) chicken broth
    1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
    2 large or 3 medium baking potatoes, baked or microwaved
    salt and ground black pepper to taste
    4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
    1/2 cup (2 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
    3 tablespoons sliced green onion


    MELT butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 to 2 minutes or until tender. Stir in flour. Gradually stir in broth and evaporated milk. Scoop potato pulp from one potato; mash. Add pulp to broth mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture just comes to a boil. Dice remaining potato skin and potato(es); add to soup. Heath though. Season with salt and pepper. Top each serving with bacon, cheese and green onion.

    VARIATION: For a different twist to this recipe, omit the bacon, cheddar cheese and green onion. Cook 2 tablespoons of shredded carrot with the onion and add 1/4 teaspoon dried dill weed to the soup when adding the broth. Proceed as above.
