Cook’s Tips:

Fresh garlic adds a wonderful flavor to many recipes. Our Garlic Press is a real time-saving tool because you never need to peel the garlic cloves before pressing.

Make-Ahead: Make this recipe with planned-over baked potatoes. Just bake extra potatoes for a weekend meal and you’ll be ready to make this soup on a weeknight. If you don’t have leftover baked potatoes, scrub and prick potatoes with the Hold ‘N Slice® then bake in 400°F oven 1 hour or microwave on HIGH 11-13 minutes until fork-tender. Cool slightly before using.
