Sandy Beall started managing Pizza Huts while a freshman at the University of Tennessee, to get out of fraternity house duties. It was just three years later that Sandy's boss at Pizza Hut would favor him with quite a nice gift: $10,000 to invest in a dream. With that, Sandy and four of his fraternity buddies pitched in to open the first Ruby Tuesday on the university campus in Knoxville, Tennesee, in 1972, Sandy was only 21 at the time.

Here's a great soup that can be served by the cup or in large bowls as a meal in itself. Along with the potatoes is a little bit of minced celerly, some minced onion, and a small amount of grated carrot for color. An additional pinch of cheese, crumbled bacon, and chopped green onion make a tasty garnish just like on the Ruby Tuesday original.

I've never been to Ruby Tuesday's, but I really love potato cheese soup. This sounded awesome, so I just had to try it. Amazing! I used what I had on hand, which meant dry minced onions instead of fresh, and the flour I used was brown rice flour. I also chopped up some fresh broccoli & added it in with the potatoes. The menfolk served it up in cereal bowls and between the three of us it was all gone!!!! I'll definitely make this again & again.
Best potato soup ever!

We made this for dinner tonight. My husband (who was starving and couldn't understand why I wouldn't just open a can of soup) took one bit and looked at me and said "Wow-some things ARE worth the wait". He then ate 3 bowls! So good.

I have had this at Ruby Tuesday's, and it is a dead-on clone. We're in the beginning stages of a blizzard here in NY and it's all about the comfort food. This is it.
