Soup isn't cooked in the oven. If you have the "It's good for you" cookbook, look at the Smashed Potato Soup recipe. It's very similar. I'd cook it that way- but it wouldn't be a DCB recipe if it isn't in the microwave.
Personally- I'd precook my potatoes in the microwave (peeled and probably on a plate if she didn't have something to fit). Then do the Batter Bowl step for the milk/cream cheese- and precook it in the microwave maybe. Then I'd just put the cooked potatoes in a stockpot on the stovetop...coarsely mashed as instructed on the recipe. Then add the milk/cream cheese mix and just cook on the stovetop until heated through.
I've not TRIED it yet- but see no reason that wouldn't work.
esavvymom... I have made Smashed Potato Soup before. You are right, soup isn't cooked in the oven. I will share this recipe with her and the other tip you shared. Maybe between to 2 she can finally have her soup or chowder.
