Number of Servings: 8


    3 pounds all-purpose potatoes, peeled and cut into large pieces
    1 tablespoon stick butter or margarine
    1 1/2 cups finely chopped onions
    3 tablespoons minced garlic
    1 (14 1/2 ounce) can chicken broth
    2 cups milk (or to desired consistency)
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon pepper

    1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
    1 cup chopped scallions, divided


Place potatoes into large pot and cover with water. Heat to a boil and cook until done, but not mushy. Let potatoes drain in a colander.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a 4- to 6-quart pot over medium low heat. Stir in onions and garlic; cover and cook 10 minutes until soft, but not brown. Add 2/3 of the potatoes and mash with a potato masher. Add broth, milk, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally.

Cut remaining potatoes in small cubes. Add to soup and stir gently to reheat. Sprinkle with cheddar and scallions to serve.

    Very Good
    This was really good. I will def. make again. I subbed some of the milk for ff half and half and I threw carrots sliced up with the potatos when they cooked for some color and flavor. Next time, I'll leave a few more pieces of potato and mush up fewer, just because that's what my family likes. - 11/5/09

    I made this for my office at work and didn't even tell them it was healthy. Five people ate all but half a bowl of it. When I took the remainder home to my husband, he was upset he didn't get more. - 3/14/08

    This is great and easy to make! I did add a little to your recipe. I used red potatos (all I had) then I made a white sauce and melted cheddar cheese in the soup and added real bacon pieces. The I added this to your recipe! Shall we call it SMOTHERED AND COVERED BAKED TATOR SOUP!! :) Thank you! - 1/25/08

    Really good and simple to make. I did fry up some bacon and then crumble it up in the soup for added flavoring, though and it added nice flavor to it. - 1/4/08
