3 pounds starchy baking potatoes, scrubbed clean
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 1/2 cup onions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons fresh garlic, minced
1 can (14.5 ounce size) chicken broth
3 cups low-fat milk or whole milk

1 teaspoon salt, to taste
1/4 teaspoon black pepper, to taste


shredded Colby cheese, garnish (optional)
crumbled bacon, garnish (optional)
chopped scallions, garnish (optional)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Poke potatoes with a fork several times and bake 1 hour or until tender when pierced.

Let cool slightly, and when you can touch them without burning your fingers, peel potatoes.

Melt butter in a large stockpot over medium-low heat.

Add onions and garlic, cover and let sweat 10 minutes, or until soft but not brown.

Add 2/3 of the potatoes and mash using a potato masher right in the pot.

Add chicken broth, milk, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Raise the heat slightly to bring mixture to a low simmer (bubbles forming under the surface, but not a boil), stirring occasionally.

Chop remaining potatoes into small cubes, add to soup, and stir gently; keep heating until soup warmed through.

Ladle into serving bowls and garnish with any or all of the optional toppings.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
To cut the cooking time down I microwaved the potatoes and that worked fine. I think you could even use something like frozen hash brown potatoes and this would turn out good. I used 2% milk with about 1/2 cup of it being replaced with heavy cream for a little extra density.

Made this soup tonight for dinner. Quite husband gave it a thumbs up. We had a couple smoked pork ribs left in the frig so I added some of the meat to the soup. Nice flavor
