Outback Potato Soup Recipe
This potato soup is one of our favorite reasons to skip the restaurant and stay home! When it comes to copycat soup recipes, they don't get much easier (or more delicious) than this one. We love to garnish it with bacon and Cheddar cheese, but feel free to get creative! Crispy onions, smoked Gouda, or black olives would all be intriguing additions.
Bake potatoes until tender. Cool, peel and chop into small pieces. Set aside.
In a large soup pot, melt the butter over medium-low heat.
Add the diced onion to the pot and cook until the onion is soft and translucent.
Add the flour and cook, stirring often, for about 3 minutes.
Pour in the chicken broth and water. Season with celery salt, black pepper, and basil.
Bring to a boil, stirring often.
Gradually add the heavy cream until the soup is rich and creamy.
Add the potatoes to the soup.
Simmer for approximately 5 minutes to warm the potatoes all the way through.
Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with Cheddar cheese, bacon bits, and scallions.
