Loaded Baked Potato Soup Recipe Is a Bowl Full of Pure Goodness

by Mary Fischer 

loaded baked potato soupI'm guessing it has something to do with the arrival of fall, but there's nothing I love more right now than a bowl of hot, savory, satisfying soup. But sometimes soup isn't quite sufficient enough to make up a whole meal, which is why I'm absolutely head-over-heels for this hearty Loaded Baked Potato Soup recipe from the Disney Parks blog.

OMG. If I had to name my top five favorite foods (like what I'd want to eat for my last meal), a fat baked potato with all the fixings would definitely make my list.

Topped with green onions, cheese, bacon bits, sour cream -- the works -- this soup is simply a dream come true.

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

1 pound bacon, roughly chopped

1 medium yellow onion, diced

1 large carrot, peeled and diced

3/4 cup diced celery

4 large Russet potatoes, peeled and diced

4 medium red potatoes, diced

1/4 cup flour

2 cups chicken or vegetable stock

Coarse salt, freshly ground pepper, to taste

4 cups heavy whipping cream

Optional garnishes: chopped chives, bacon bits, sour cream, shredded cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese

Directions:

In a 6- to 8-quart stockpot over medium heat, fry bacon until crisp.

Remove bacon and drain on paper towels, reserving half for garnish. In bacon fat, cook onions, carrots, and celery until the onions are translucent. Add potatoes and cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Whisk in flour and stir constantly over low heat until the flour is cooked and the mixture has thickened slightly, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add chicken stock and half of the bacon. Season with salt and pepper.

Over medium-high heat, bring the soup to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes or until the potatoes are soft. Mash some of the potatoes for thicker, creamier texture. Add whipping cream and simmer for 5 minutes.

Adjust thickness by adding water or stock. Soup should have a creamy consistency.

Season to taste, and garnish with toppings.

I like potato soup.  Unfortunately, if I followed that recipe, I would have soup for a month.  They seldom give recipies for one person.  I like chicken, kielbasa and cabbage, and cabbage and onion.

hooooooh! This sounds wonderful!!!!  I do like potato soup, it is a comfort food.  I mainly make it as my mother did, only I go with reduced fat.  I cook up potatoes, onion, celery, in water just to cover. Then season with salt and pepper. Mash with a hand masher. Add milk for desired thickness. And a trick I learned on here is to add instant mashed potatoes also as a thickener. :)
