How to make it

  • Bake potatoes at 400 degrees until just tender. Cool, peel and cut into cubes.
  • Melt butter in large saucepan. Add onions and saute over low heat until golden, about 10 minutes. Add flour and cook, stirring often, until flour is absorbed, about 4-5 minutes.
  • In medium bowl combine water, chicken base, basil and Tabasco. Mix until smooth and add to onions, stirring constantly. Increase heat to medium and cook until soup begins to simmer.
  • Add cream and milk, stirring until smooth and slightly thickened. Simmer for 15 minutes, being careful not to boil.
  • Add potatoes and stir to heat and combine.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve topped with cheese and/or onions.

    This was a great recipe for Houlihan's Baked Potato Soup. I think that next time I will put just fried bacon pieces on top as a garnish. I used bacon bits this time - but it really needs just a little bacon grease.

    This was fabulous. I added a few more potato buds to the recipe, but otherwise did exactly as directed. Thank you so much!

    OMG, Houlihan's in Dallas used to be a frequent stop for me and this one of the things I often ordered. They are no longer around in this area anyway, unfortunately. Thanks Joe for bringing back a real treasure and a great memory.
