Loaded Baked Potato Soup

There’s a definite chill in the air. Ideal soup weather.  This easy recipe for a loaded baked potato soup the perfect way to warm you from the inside out. It’s darn tasty, too.


In the winter, I am the one in the family that keeps her coat on for an hour after we get home from running errands, wears multiple layers of clothing, and has an electric mattress pad. The one disadvantage of being skinny is constantly feeling cold when the temps plummet. I sip hot tea all day long.


When it gets really cold, I turn to hot, steaming dishes for dinner. Soup, like this Homemade Beef Barley Soup, is a favorite. Hubby prefers his meat and potatoes, so sprinkling this baked potato soup with a healthy amount of chopped bacon does help.

Make It Your Own


You can tweak  potato soup by mixing in your favorite baked potato toppings. I usually go with sour cream, shredded sharp cheddar, bacon and chives or scallions.


Feel free to saute a few cloves of garlic to make a garlicky baked potato soup.  Think of the toppings you enjoy on a baked potato or potato skins. The possibilities are endless.


Give this loaded baked potato soup a try.  My countdown to spring has begun. How about you?

  13. It’s not often I would endulge potatoes but this soup would definitely be the one! We have been rather fortunate weather-wise, it’s been quite lovely lately. But I know what you mean, even though I’m no where near skinny, I do find it difficult to keep warm, particularly my hands ans feet.

  17. Liz, this was delicious. I didn’t have enough milk but with cream, chicken broth, and sour cream, I managed to catch up with you. Mike isn’t easily pleased but he LOVED this soup. I wish I’d had more potatoes to make more soup to freeze and save. It was wonderful. THANK YOU~!~!

  18. Love the idea of this soup! Who could resist that flavor? I’d make this the whole meal — really good stuff. Thanks!

  19. Wow!

  20. I have never made baked potato soup though I have been terribly tempted. This sounds totally calorie worthy!

  21. That looks like true comfort in a bowl.

  22. Comfort food at its best! I think everyone in my family would love this one also.

  23. AWESOME recipe Liz! Perfect for us as well, not that finally the temps are a bit cooler. And you’re SO like Panos, the paragraph where you describe yourself with the coat, the electric mattress and sipping tea all day lol !!!
