Baked Potato Soup

This soup is super easy & yummy! Its perfect for a cold night this soup is very filling and warms you up. This is also a really great recipe for kids, I let my son add in some extra cheese and bacon to his and he thinks its so cool to help! You can head over to the Carnation website and check out more information on it.


2 large or 3 medium baking potatoes, baked or microwaved
•1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
•1/4 cup chopped onion
•1/4 cup all-purpose flour
•1 can (14.5 fl. oz.) chicken broth
•1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
•Cooked and crumbled bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, sliced green onions (optional)


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 1 potato (reserve potato skin); mash. Add pulp to broth mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture comes just to a boil. Dice remaining potato skin and potato(es); add to soup. Heat through. Season with salt and ground black pepper. Top each serving with bacon, cheese and green onions, if desired.

Of course you can always add or subtract anything you want, it tastes great with a dollop of sour cream ontop!
