Loaded Baked Potato Soup Recipe

So, I know it has been freezing just about everywhere in the country! While it hasn't been quite freezing here in Southern California, it has been a bit chilly. Here is a baked potato soup recipe that's sure to warm your heart, soul and tummy! :) I received this recipe from a girlfriend and thought I would pass it along to you!
Who doesn't love soup with butter, green onions, bacon, cheddar cheese sour cream, and potato? I like to serve my soup with crusty bread, or sometimes I hollow out a large roll and use it for a soup bowl.

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Prep Time: 15 Min

Cook Time: 15 Min

Serves: 6 to 8

•2/3 cup butter
•2/3 cup flour
•7 cups milk
•4 large baking potatoes, baked, cooled, peeled and cubed, about 4 cups
•4 green onions, thinly sliced
•10 to 12 strips bacon, cooked, drained, and crumbled
•1 1/4 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese
•1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
•3/4 teaspoon salt
•1/2 teaspoon pepper
I also add 1 onion soup mix ( Mrs.Grass or Lipton) for flavor.


In a large Dutch oven or stockpot over low heat, melt butter. Stir in flour; stir until smooth and bubbly. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly, until sauce has thickened.

Add potatoes and onions. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until soup begins to bubble.

Reduce heat; simmer gently for 10 minutes.

Add remaining ingredients; stir until cheese is melted. Serve baked potato soup immediately.
