Tony Roma's Baked Potato Soup

I've kind of been on a soup kick lately, but I think it's time to kick the kick because we aren't even close to soup weather. It's in the 80's here today! Guess it's time to fire up the barbeque instead! So here is my last soup recipe for a while...



Tony Roma's Baked Potato Soup
(dont' know if this is REALLY the restaurants recipe--I copied it from my friend Allison)
2-3 medium potatoes, baked, peeled & diced
(bake at 400 degrees for about 1 hour)
3 Tblspn. butter
2 Tblspn. flour
4 c. chicken stock
3 c. water
1/4 c. cornstarch
1 1/2 c. instant mashed potatoes
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. basil
1/8 tsp. thyme
1 c. half-n-half
In large pot, melt butter and saute onions until tender and slightly brown.
Add flour to onions.
Add stock, water, cornstarch, mashed potatoes and spices.
Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and add half-n-half and diced baked potatoes.
Garnish with grated cheese, chopped bacon & diced green onions.
