If you love baked potatoes then you will swoon for this easy, tasty potato soup.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 6 cups Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional)
  • 1 cup extra sharp shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 tablespoons sour cream (optional)
  • 1 scallion, sliced (optional)


  1. In a heavy bottom pot, heat the olive oil and butter over medium heat; add the onions and salt; cook until just beginning to soften, about 5 minutes; add the potatoes and stir well; cook for another 5 to 10 minutes, until the potatoes soften as well.
  2. Add the chicken broth and stir well; bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the milk; add the bacon, reserving 2 tablespoons, and stir well. Stir in the cheddar until melted. Taste, and season as needed with salt and pepper.
  3. Divide the soup between four bowls and top each with 1 tablespoon of sour cream, 1/2 tablespoon of bacon and scallions, as desired. Serve immediately.
