RECIPE: Loaded Baked Potato Soup

This is my really fast and easy dinner when I don't know what to make but I'm starving. It tastes just like a loaded baked potato, and it's really not too bad for you.



Loaded Baked Potato Soup

2 tsp. canola oil
1 onion, chopped
1 bag frozen potatoes
1 quart chicken broth
1/2 cup milk or cream
1 cup sour cream
Toppings, like shredded cheese, bacon, chives, green onion, etc.

Heat oil in a soup pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté until onion is soft.

Meanwhile, put the potatoes in a colander and run under hot water to thaw a little. When onions are soft (not brown) add the chicken broth and milk. Bring to a boil. Add potatoes and return to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are soft (usually less than 5 or 10 minutes). Sometimes I purée the soup at this point, but you don't have to. Stir in sour cream.

Ladle into bowls and add your toppings.
