How to Make Outback Steakhouse Potato Soup (Copycat Recipe!)

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Lightly spray a baking sheet with oil, or line with a silicone baking mat (I like this one).
  2. Using a knife or fork, pierce each potato evenly on all sides. Place the potatoes unto the baking sheet, drizzle olive oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake until potato is tender, about 50-60 minutes.
  3. Into a large pot, melt the butter over a medium heat. Keep stirring to avoid burning the butter. Add in the garlic and onions. Stir until garlic is fragrant and onion is transluscent.
  4. Add in the flour (or cornstarch) and stir for 3-5 minutes to make a roux. Then add in the chicken stock, water, salt, and pepper. Keep stirring until mixture comes to a boil.
  5. Pour in the heavy cream. Stir to combine.
  6. When the potatoes are done, chop them into cubes and add it to the pot. Simmer for 3-4 minutes, then remove potato soup from heat. Feel free to mash up the potatoes to your desired consistency (I use this masher to make the job go quicker!)
  7. Divide soup into 8 bowls, then top with chopped chives/scallions, crispy bacon, and shredded cheddar cheese. ENJOY!

    I made this with a few changes and it turned out amazing – almost just like Outback or maybe O’Charley’s. I didn’t add water and instead of heavy cream used whole milk and just added it until the soup was the consistency I liked.

    1. I’d like to know too. We’ve been recently to Outback and it looks like they don’t have the skins on. I would think it’s a matter of preference. I like them on but for trying to make it as similar to the recipe I will peal my potatoes. I haven’t made this recipe yet. Planning on it for dinner today.
