Hard Rock Cafe Baked Potato Soup

recipe box


  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1 cup diced yellow onions
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 6 cups hot chicken stock
  • 4 cups diced, peeled baked potatoes
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp red pepper sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp coarse black pepper
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup diced green onions, white part only
  • additional chopped bacon
  • grated cheese for garnish
  • chopped parsley for garnish


Fry bacon until crisp. Chop bacon and reserve drippings. Cook onions in remaining drippings over medium-high heat until transparent, about 3 minutes. Add flour, stirring to prevent lumps. Cook 3 - 5 minutes until mix just begins to run golden. Add chicken stock gradually, whisking to prevent lumps, until liquid thickens.

Reduce heat to simmer and add potatoes, cream, chopped bacon, parsley, garlic, basil, salt, pepper sauce and black pepper. Simmer 10 minutes; DO NOT ALLOW TO BOIL. Add grated cheese and green onions.

Heat until cheese melts smoothly. Garnish each serving as desired with chopped bacon, grated cheese and chopped parsley.
