panera- like baked potato soup recipe

I love Panera.  I could eat there every other day it is so yummy.  If you haven't tried their mac & cheese then you are missing out.  The only bad thing about Panera is the way your clothes smell when you leave....I can't explain it but it stinks.  Anywhoo, I am such a big fan of their soups I decided to google a copy cat and try it out.  This is SO good and cheap!   If sweet baby Jesus handed you a bowl of soup from heaven this would be it.


4 cups chicken broth
4 cups peeled and cubed potatoes (we used a little more)

1/4 cup minced onion

1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt

1/4 teaspoon white pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cut into chunks

Bacon, chives, and cheddar to top with


1. Combine broth, potatoes, onion, and spices.

2. Boil on medium heat until potatoes are tender.

3. Smash a few of the potatoes to release their starch for thickening.

4. Reduce to low heat.

5. Add cream cheese.

6. Heat, stirring frequently, until cheese melts.
