Loaded Baked Potato Soup is all of the flavors of a loaded baked potato in one comforting, easy, and delicious soup!
It's no secret around here that I'm a HUGE fan of soup. Especially this time of year, I seriously cannot get enough of it. Luckily, my kids love soup too, and this Loaded Baked Potato Soup was no exception!
I mean, this soup basically takes all of the amazing things in a loaded baked potato - bacon, potato, green onion, shredded cheese, and sour cream - put into a soup. This Baked Potato Soup is creamy, SO flavorful, and is definitely on our rotation all fall and winter.
Half and Half
This potato soup recipe starts by cooking diced bacon until nice and crispy. Next, the onion and garlic are sauteed in the bacon fat, and then shredded potatoes get tossed in and cooked slightly.
To the potatoes, add flour, and mix well, allowing it to slightly cook. The next step is super important, so listen up 🙂 You will very slowly add the milk, half and half, and chicken broth. VERY slowly. I like to slowly add it while constantly stirring it in. This will ensure the soup is super creamy, and worth having a little patience.
After this mixture is simmered until the potatoes are softened, shredded cheese and sour cream is added to the soup, along with the cooked bacon, and it's ready to go. I told you - it's easy!
This baked potato soup was a hit with the whole family, and I'm positive it will be with yours, too. We served it with a little side salad and some crusty french bread and it was such a tasty dinner on a chilly fall evening.
