Baked Potato Soup

I tried this recipe for the first time last night, and I don't know what they are thinking--it was not a soup. But it was yummy. Next time I'm going to add a lot more liquid (chicken broth or milk), not just to make it really a soup, but also because the potatoes took forever to cook without enough liquid. Maybe keeping the lid on while they cook would help too.

Baked Potato Soup

¼ c butter
½ onion
2 T flour
1 can chicken broth
4 potatoes, cubed
½ t salt
½ t pepper
½ t garlic salt
Dash Tabasco sauce
1 c sour cream

Melt butter in a pot, sauté onions, sprinkle in flour—cook about 5 minutes.
Gradually add in the chicken broth. Stir in potatoes and seasonings. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in sour cream. Serve with chopped green onions, crumbled bacon, and grated cheddar.
