How To Make Loaded Baked Potato Soup

  1. Cook bacon in a large 5-6 quart pot over medium heat. Cook and stir until crisped.
  2. Remove bacon and place onto a paper towel lined plate to drain.
  3. Add onion, carrot and celery to hot oil, stirring and cooking until fork tender, about 5-8 minutes.
  4. Whisk in flour, stirring until well combined, letting cook for a few minutes.
  5. Stir in chicken broth and half of the bacon, stirring to combine.
  6. Add diced potatoes, salt, pepper and garlic salt, stirring to combine. Let potatoes cook until fork tender, about 15 minutes.
  7. With the back of a fork, mash most of the potatoes and vegetables, this creates a thick, creamy soup base.
  8. Stir in cream and let warm on low-medium heat for 15 minutes.
  9. Reduce heat to simmer until ready to serve.
  10. Serve each cup of soup topped with shredded cheese, remaining bacon crumbles, and chives or green onion.

Once you’ve transferred the cooked bacon to a paper towel lined plate, start cooking the onion, carrot and celery in the hot bacon fat. Takes a good 5-8 minutes until they’re fork tender.

Add in chicken broth.

Add both Russet and red potatoes, plus half of the cooked bacon, stirring to combine and letting cook in liquid until fork tender as well. Takes close to 15 minutes, stirring often. I found it helpful to dice my potatoes into small pieces, all close to the same size so they cook quickly. Another note, the recipe called for 4 large Russet potatoes and I only ended up using 3 of them. The recipe also called for 4 medium red potatoes and I used 6 small ones. You’ll see when you start adding them to the liquid in this step, how many feels right. If you put too many diced potatoes here, they won’t have much liquid to cook in. Eyeball it and add what feels appropriate which will be dependent on the size of the potatoes.

When potatoes are fork tender, take a fork and mash most of them to create a thick soup base. I did leave some chunky potatoes.

Slowly stir in the heavy whipping cream. The original recipe called for 4 cups and I felt very happy with 3 cups. The soup was still nice and thick without too much liquid. Some people also will substitute 2 cups chicken broth/2 cups heavy cream. There are a few options for you. Note….this soup is very rich! It’s incredible, but will be made on special occasions going forward 🙂 It’s definitely worth celebrating with.

Cook the soup on low-medium until the cream is combined and soup is nice and hot. Reduce to low heat and simmer until ready to serve. Be sure to stir often as the cream will set slightly if not.

    It was so simple to make. I substituted the bacon and used turkey bacon instead, and it was still just as amazing. Pure deliciousness. 🙂
