Black Angus Potato Soup

Black Angus potato soup is creamy and thick and oh so comforting. This soup is made with baked potatoes and is so flavorful, it will soon become a favorite.

Black Angus restaurants used to be everywhere. They are still around, and you can find the majority of the restaurants in California.

Black Angus Steakhouse was known for serving Black Angus beef, but they also serve seafood, burgers, and more. Their baked potato soup is a thick and hearty soup you won’t want to miss.

What makes the Black Angus Potato Soup special?

There are a couple of ways this soup recipe differs from other potato soup recipes. They use potatoes that are already baked. These baked potatoes break down into the soup, so the soup becomes thick and hearty.

You will get a few small chunks of potatoes, but mostly the potatoes are completely broken down.

This recipe uses no chicken broth. Many potato soup recipes use chicken stock or chicken broth. This recipe uses milk as the liquid for the soup. This makes the soup very creamy and doesn’t take away from the baked potato flavor.

Ingredients needed for Black Angus Potato Soup

This potato starts with potatoes that are baked. You could microwave your potatoes to cook them, but I think the flavor of potatoes is different when they are baked.

You will need bacon, American cheese, sour cream,  chives, and Cheddar cheese.

This soup has a roux base so you will need butter, flour, and milk for the thick base of the soup.

As you can see you need the same ingredients in the soup that traditionally tops a baked potato.

Soup Steps

You will want to start the soup with baked potatoes, so this recipe is perfect if you have left-over baked potatoes.

You will scoop out the meat of the potatoes. You could turn the potato skins into loaded potato skins.

After you have scooped out the potatoes, you will want to prepare a roux of butter, flour, and milk.

After the roux is made you will add the baked potatoes, cheese, cooked bacon, sour cream, and chives to the soup.

It takes no time at all to make this soup.

How to reheat potato soup

Of course, you can reheat soup in the microwave. Since this soup is super thick, it will reheat best if you reheat it on the stove.

You may need to add a little more milk to the soup to help loosen up the soup. It tastes so good the first time, and even more the second time you enjoy this soup.

    I have been making this recipe for years and it is always a huge hit! It’s my go-to for potlucks and family dinners. I make it as the recipe calls for and don’t make any changes. It’s super delicious and one batch is never enough. My family goes back for seconds and thirds!

    Made this tonight it is real good!!! A keeper. I did make some changes as in other comments… I did 3 cups milk 2 cups chicken broth and 2 cups half and half… Very good. It tastes like a creamy, loaded baked potato. Delicious.

    This recipe was absolutely phenomenal. It tasted just like the soup at Black Angus. As suggested below, I replaced 2 cups of the milk with chicken broth. I am so glad I found this site and this recipe; definitely a meal that will be in the regular dinner rotation in my home!

    one more thing.. instead of baking the potatoes if in a hurry go ahead and boil them.. its much faster.. the only reason they baked them at the resturaunt was because they served baked potatoes as a side dish so for them it just made sense. i boil mine. but try this with the half and half and with the chicken broth.. its really good.. i also serve it with the Cheesy garlic bread they have on their menu.. its mayo, green onion, shredded mozzerella and sharp cheddar cheese, mix with crushed garlic, spread onto hoagie rolls or sourdough bread broil til cheese bubbles and the edges brown.. its such a nice meal

    i worked at this steak house for many years. I know of another secret ingredient that made this soup much creamier and yummier.. it had chicken broth added plus it was not milk.. it was half and half.. try it .. its waaaaaay better this way.. a bowl full of yummy for yer tummy.. l

    I thought the taste was great, added a little more cheese than the recipe called for because we love cheese. It was a very thick soup, next time I will add a little more milk to thin it out some

    I am sorry to report that even after following this exactly as written ( I even bought white pepper for this) it just wasnt good. My family loves Black Angus for this soup. All we could taste in this was the flour base. Thanks for posting but there wont be a second try for us.

      If you don’t cook the flour and butter roux long enough, you’ll taste the flour. I’d cook it for longer than the time stated. You don’t want color on it, but too short a time, and it tastes like flour rather than bechamel.

      • stephaniemanley

        This is so true. I always advice in my videos to cook the roux until it becomes fragrant. When it becomes fragrant you know it has cooked enough.

    This soup from Black Angus is the only reason I go to Black Angus–I made this recipe this last weekend and it’s almost identical! I’m very impressed and very happy!
