Introduction

This is a light version of what would normally be considered a diet no-no - creamy potato soup. Along with a salad, you could easily have a sinfully decadent dinner for under 500 calories.

Ingredients

    4 baking potatoes (about 2 1/2 pounds)
    2/3 cup all purpose flour
    6 cups 2% milk
    1 cup (4oz) reduced fat shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese, divided
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1 cup reduced fat sour cream
    3/4 cup chopped green onions, divided
    6 bacon slices, cooked until very crisp and crumbled
    cracked black pepper (optional)

Directions

Makes 8 generous (1 1/2 cup) servings

Preheat oven to 400.

Pierce potatoes with fork and bake at 400 for 1 hour or until tender. Cool, peel and coarsely mash.

Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup and level with a knife. Place flour in a large Dutch oven; gradually add milk, stirring with whisk until blended. Cook over medium heat until thick and bubbly, about 8 minutes. Add mashed potatoes, 3/4 cup cheese, salt and pepper, stirring until cheese melts. Remove from heat.

Stir in sour cream and 1/2 cup onions. Cook over low heat 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated but do not allow it to boil. Ladle 1 1/2 cups soup into each serving bowl, top with 1 1/2 tsp cheese, 1 1/2 tsp onions, and about 1 Tbsp bacon. Garnish with black pepper if desired.

  • This is a really great soup. I did make some modifications. I already had about 4 cups of homemade mashed potatoes frozen so I used those instead of baking new. I also added about 2 tsp of garlic powder in the pot first with a small amount of oil and onion then added the flour, etc. YUM! Thanks! - 12/10/12
