Loaded Baked Potato Soup

xtal420

"Everyone who has tried this soup loves it. It is a good soup for veggie haters. Baking the potatoes first gives them the perfect texture for this thick creamy soup. You won't be disappointed. I always serve this with crackers and top the soup with a bit more shredded Cheddar, crumbled bacon, and a dollop of sour cream."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Wrap potatoes in aluminum foil.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven until potatoes are tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Cool potatoes until easily handled and cut into cubes.
  3. Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels and crumble.
  4. Combine milk, cream, sour cream, processed cheese, and Cheddar cheese in a large pot over medium heat; cook, stirring frequently, until cheeses are melted, about 10 minutes. Add potatoes and bacon to milk mixture and simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently, until potatoes begin to dissolve into soup, about 20 minutes; season with onion salt and black pepper.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can substitute other types of potatoes but I think red work best.
  • You can add chives or replace onion salt with chives/minced onion (just remember to add some salt).

All the dairy products made the soup curdle. We did not care for this at all. :(

It was very delicious but I also used all shredded cheese rather then the Velveeta. Definitely tastes better the next day after all the flavors exchange and soak up.

I have made this soup many, many times and it is always delicious. When my best friend was going through chemo treatments, I would make and freeze multiple bags of this soup so she always had i...

Make sure the bacon is fried crispy or it gets soggy

This will go straight to your good.

I used 1/2 the amount of butter. Also 1/2 the salt amount. Added half n half instead of milk. Used organic chicken broth. And only added half the cheese to the soup. Reserved the rest of the ch...

Thin and Curdled. Maybe I did something wrong...? Wasn't thick and creamy like I'd hoped.

I made it exact to the recipe, except the Velveeta cheese. I couldn't find it in the store so I used slices. It turned out awesome. Thank you for the recipe.
