Baked Potato Soup

Recipe Submitted by Aunt Runner.

4 medium potatoes
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup diced white onion
2 tablespoons flour
4 cups chicken stock
2 cups water
1/4 cup cornstarch
3/4 cup instant potato flakes
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
1 cup half and half
8 strips crumbled, cooked bacon
Cheddar cheese for garnish

Bake potatoes until done in microwave or oven. As potatoes cool, melt butter in a large saucepan, and sauté onion until light brown. Add the flour to the onions and stir to make a roux. Add stock, water, cornstarch, potato flakes and spices to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out contents with a large spoon. Discard skin. Chop baked potato with a large knife to make chunks that are about 1/2 inch in size. Add chopped baked potato and half-and-half to the saucepan, bring soup back to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer the soup for another 15 minutes or until it is thick. Spoon soup into bowls and garnish with cheese. Serves 6-8.
