Potato soup. Just the name alone makes me go, “ummmmmmm!”

Hearty, warming, and oh so very comforting. It is one of my favorite soup recipes!

Since this potato soup recipe utilizes pre-cooking your potatoes, you can have this soup on the table and ready for supper in 20 minutes. That makes it a sure-fire winner on busy weeknights when everyone is starving as soon as they walk through the door from Scouts, after school activities or work or for a body warming lunch on days like yesterday.

I start by cooking diced bacon in a Dutch oven until cooked throughout. Then, remove the bacon and whisk in the flour and cook until well combined, but not browned. Then, I whisk in my milk, broth and salt and cook until thickened. Meanwhile, I’ll have cooked my potatoes using either my easy baked potatoes recipe, slow cooker baked potatoes or a quicker method of quickly cooking in the microwave. Once the potatoes have cooked, you can split them in half and scoop out the inside of the baked potatoes into the soup or quickly peel and rough chop them and add them in.

Once cooked through, use a potato masher or an immersion blender until the potato soup reaches the consistency that you prefer.

I like to serve the potato soup like this and allow everyone to add their own favorite toppings to their loaded potato soup.

I’ll have toppings on hand of the cooked bacon, shredded cheese, and sliced green onions. You can also include chives, caramelized onions and sour cream! Whatever you like for your baked potato toppings work great in this soup!

Loaded baked potato soup makes a warm, comforting potato soup recipe. Made with baked potatoes blended into a creamy soup and topped with your potato bar favorites!

Ingredients  

  • 3-4 medium baked potatoes
  • 3-4 thick-cut bacon slices diced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 cup chicken stock or broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt

Optional toppings:

  • cheddar cheese grated
  • green onions sliced
  • caramelized onions
  • sour cream
  • chives

Instructions 

  • Dice bacon and cook over medium heat in at least a 3-quart Dutch oven until crisp and cooked throughout. With a slotted spoon, remove cooked bacon from the Dutch oven. Whisk the flour into the bacon renderings until well-combined but do not cook until browned. Whisk in milk, stock, and salt. Continue stirring until soup has thickened and begins to bubble, about 12 minutes.
  • Split baked potatoes in half and scoop insides of the baked potatoes into the thickened soup or peel the potatoes, give them a rough chop and add them into the soup. Using a potato masher or an immersion blender, incorporate the baked potatoes into the soup until well combined.
  • Top with optional toppings and serve hot.
  • Alternately, store without the optional toppings in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator or a freezer safe container for up to 1 month in the freezer.

  1. Robyn, I love this soup!!! I’m all about “loaded” everything when it comes to eating 😛 but maybe I’ll use lactaid instead of the milk 😛

  2. I made this tonight and blended with an immersion blender since my kids won’t eat lumpy soup. The flavor was great, but the texture was really gummy. Was that because of the blending? I’ll add more broth when I reheat it. Any other suggestions?

  3. I like your recipes…but going to your blog site is frustrating. There are too many ads jumping in constantly, making the page jump all over the place and reading your blog is too time consuming and …like I said….frustrating. Is all this necessary?

    1. Hi Patti,
      I am so sorry that is happening – we are working on getting that fixed ASAP! I appreciate you letting me know about it.
      Thanks so much!
