The first time I decided to try making a loaded baked potato soup, I could not decide which recipe I found to use...so I combined 2 together that sounded great. It's is the best potato soup I've ever had! Anyone who's tried it cannot get enough of it.

  • Stir bacon, half-and-half, Cheddar cheese, and sour cream into the soup. Turn heat to Low setting; cook until thick and creamy, 15 to 20 minutes more.

  • Mash the soup in the slow cooker using a potato masher to your desired consistency. Garnish with additional Cheddar cheese, sour cream, and chives.

Cook's Notes:

You can use white or yellow onions.

Margarine can be substituted for the butter.

Light sour cream can be substituted for the full-fat version.

I used the instant pot to sauté the onion in the butter then switched to the slow cooker. We thought this was was yummy. I added 1tsp of rouge pimento and a 4 ounce can of mild diced Chili s. I put the crumbled bacon on the table to add as each person wished vs in the soup. This way it added needed texture. I was worried the soup would be grainy but it was really smooth. I ll make it again. Easy delicious and with a loaf of hot bread and a fresh green salad I made everyone happy! Read More

While red potatoes would be ideal russets was all I had so that is what I used. This turned out really good and was full of flavor. The one change I would make next time is to make extra bacon to set aside for garnish. I usually do this and just forgot. The additional texture and color would make this even better. Plus you can never go wrong with more bacon. This is a good soup and one I would definitely make again! Read More

My husband & I found this recipe to be Very Salty. All reviews talked about how delicious it is so I made a double batch. If making again I wouldn’t put in any salt. I’m not sure if it’s salvageable Read More

Followed the recipe step by step and it turned out GREAT. I just didn't garnish it with more sour cream in the end. I had a sample with it and just didn't feel the need for more... Read More
