Hi Bold Bakers!

Imagine a baked potato with all the trimmings: bacon, cheese, and sour cream. Now imagine that as a delicious, creamy soup made in the microwave from start to finish in MINUTES! It’s a delicious soup that is guaranteed to warm you cockles and fill you up until dinner.

The great thing about Mug Meals is they just require a handful of ingredients. Use what you have in your fridge and freezer. If you don’t like bacon, add in corn instead. Customize this soup to suit. This Microwave Potato Soup takes just a few minutes to make, even less time to cook, and you get a perfect single-serving portion. They’re great when you need something simple but still homemade. And they can be made up the day before for even more convenience.

I created all-new Mug Meal recipes that will cover you for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and of course dessert. If you like this recipe you will love my recipe for Mug Lasagna, Microwave Egg MugMuffin, Jelly Donut in a Mug and Chocolate Pudding in a Mug.

Learn how to make my Microwave Potato Soup loaded with delicious ingredients like bacon, cheese and scallions. It's a Mug Meal in just minutes!
Author: Gemma Stafford
Servings: 1

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup (6oz, 170g) water
  • 3 tablespoons potatoes , in small cubes
  • 1 tablespoon white onion , chopped
  • 2 tablespoons cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon bacon , cooked
  • 2 tsp cornflour (cornstarch)
  • ½ cup (4oz, 115g) chicken stock (or vegetable stock)
  • ¼ cup (2oz, 56g) milk
  • Salt & pepper
  • Sour cream for garnish , optional

Instructions

  • Add your potatoes and water into a large microwaveable mug. Microwave for 3-4 min or until the potatoes are tender. Check on it half way through and stir
  • Once cooked drain away the cooking water
  • Into the potatoes stir in the bacon, cheese and onions and cornflour. The cornflour will thicken your soup.
  • Stir in the stock and milk and season with salt and pepper
  • Place in the microwave and cook for 2 1/2 - 3 minutes or until it thickens and all of your ingredients have heated through. (Cooking time is based on my 1200W microwave so your timing might vary) Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook.
  • Serve topped with sour cream and some more sprinkles of bacon and chives

Recipe Notes

Use a large mug because the water can bubble up in the microwave
Cut your potatoes small because they will cook faster
They can be mixed up in advance for an even speedier meal
Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug
You can bake them in the oven at 350oF (180oC) for roughly 10-12 minutes. However every mug is different so I advise checking on it after 10 and then make a call.

I made this soup and it is delicious. I doubled the recipe so my husband could have some too. The only thing I did different was that I added 2 tablespoons of instant potato flakes for a little more potato flavor and some extra cheddar cheese. My husband loved it too. Thank you for a great quick recipe.

Really good recipe, I doubled it to make a bowl and it was perfect. It took a little bit longer in the microwave but still worked, also I added dehydrated mashed potatoes to thicken a little bit more. I will definitely make again.

Probably sounds silly but it would be really helpful if you included the mug size eg “use an 8oz mug” or something similar. I find my mugs are never the right size and the ingredients either disappear in the mug and looks like I’m trying to starve someone, or they bubble over and make a mess 🙁

Hi there a ruby!
I just searched for soup for one and I’m so glad I came across your recipe. I had all of these staples in my kitchen already and just made this this afternoon. I want you to know it was one of the best potato soups I’ve ever tasted !! The only thing I added was a little bit of garlic powder since I really like garlic. Thanks for the recipe 🙂 I’m going to follow your blog. Cheers

I was very skeptical that the microwave could yield creamy, cheesy potato soup but I was faced with a heat wave, some leftover bacon from BLTs, and a raw potato so I decided to give it a try. It’s better than any recipe I’ve tried on the stove! Oh man. This comes together so perfectly

I didn’t have cornflour so i substituted 3 tsp of flour inatead and I did not include the bacon and it was a delicous late night snack!

Just tried this Egg Mugmuffin and it was fantastic! I used mature English cheddar and green onions with more on top when it was finished. First recipe I have tried and will definitely try more. We are going to make your mug pizza for lunch. Thank you for the recipe.

Hi again Gemma!

Real quick question, any ideas on how I could modify this to make mashed potatoes instead?

Best,
Daniela
