Loaded Baked Potato Soup

This recipe was originally posted by seleach in Feb 2013 What's for Dinner thread.

I found this recipe at Jamie Cooks It Up
http://jamiecooksitup.net/2012/05/lo...d-potato-soup/

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

8 russet potatoes
1 (16 ounce) package bacon
1 C butter
1 1/2 C flour
4 C milk
4 C half and half
10 chicken bullion cubes (or 10 tsp. bullion granules)
salt and pepper
cheddar cheese, grated
green onions, chopped

Scrub your potatoes clean with water and then set them out on a baking sheet.
Press a fork into each potato several times. Pop them into a 400 degree oven and let them bake for about 1 hour.

Let the potatoes cool for at least 20 minutes before you try to handle them. When they are cool enough, peel them and then chop them into pieces.

Line a large baking sheet with tin foil and lay your bacon out onto it. Bake it at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until crisp.
Remove the bacon from the hot baking sheet to a plate lined with paper towels. Dab the excess grease from the bacon with another paper towel. Once the bacon has cooled, cut it into pieces.

Into a large pot melt 1 cup of butter.
Add 1 1/2 cups of flour to the butter.
Quickly whisk the butter and flour together forming a nice thick paste (this is called a roux)

Add 4 cups of milk,4 cups of half and half, and 10 bullion cubes or 10 teaspoons bullion granules.

Whisk the soup ingredients together over medium high heat. Keep on stirring until the soup comes to a boil and gets thick. Should take about 5 minutes is all. If the soup is thicker than you like add a little bit of milk to thin it out.
Add the baked potato chunks and allow them to get heated through.

Taste the soup, add a bit of salt and pepper to your liking. Serve it with the bacon crumbles, cheddar cheese and green onions.

Serves 12.

What could you use in place of bullion cubes and how much? I'm thinking of the sodium content on that, bacon would already be high would chicken broth (homemade) work just as well?

Do you mean to use chicken broth in place of the milk and half and half?
That would change the taste and consistency of the soup. I wouldn't recommend it.
The bacon is not put into the soup. It is sprinkled over the soup when it is served.
You could use turkey bacon if that would help you or omit the bacon.

No I meant the-
10 chicken bullion cubes (or 10 tsp. bullion granules)

I'm guessing this adds flavor to the soup so I was wondering what I could add to replace that since they are very high in sodium, even the low sodium ones if you can find them.

You can make your own chicken broth using chicken!

I used the canned low sodium myself and then used 1/2 turkey bacon and 1/2 regualr bacon, used fat free half and half and skim milk. It turned out beautiful!

Thanks cat lover. By using broth did you find that the soup was thin or did you cut back on the amount of half + half and milk?
