Fast and Easy No-Cream Baked Potato Soup Recipe

Fast & Easy Dinner: Baked-Potato Soup

OK, so this may not be the fastest soup ever, but it sure is easy. And delicious. And comforting. Who doesn't loved baked potato soup?! The reason this soup takes so long is that the potatoes have to bake. But have no fear, here's your gameplan for tonight's meal: When you arrive home, turn on the oven immediately, then throw the potatoes in. You have an hour to catch up on the Olympics, take a shower, make a martini — basically do whatever you want! When the potatoes are cooked, remove from the oven and while they cool, prepare the toppings of your choice. With just about 15 minutes of actual prep time, you'll have a soothing, scrumptious bowl of soup.

Okay, so I made this last night. Now keep in mind I'm not anywhere's near a gourmet chef. We are on a tight budget and this was so easy to make. However, no more often than I would make my own soup, I don't think I would make this much. It is really easy and tastes good, but I think I'll make one that is much more fattening and has cream in it next time. This recipe is like an low cal healthier version or something.
