Loaded Baked Potato Soup
Tips for Making Baked Potato Soup
- Russet potatoes work well for this baked potato soup instead of a waxy yellow or red potato.
- Steak houses typically use russet potatoes when they serve a baked potato with your beef.
- 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?
