Baked Potato Soup

This Baked Potato Soup has all the flavors of a loaded baked potato in a rich, creamy soup and it is pure comfort food on a cold, winter night. Sour cream, bacon, cheese, and green onions. It is pure yumminess in a bowl.

Serve with some crusty bread and a tossed salad for a delicious and comforting soup supper. The bread in the picture is some frozen bread that tastes just like Outback’s bread. I absolutely love it. It’s Harris Teeter brand bread if you have Harris Teeter stores near you. But watch out. It’s addicting.

I leave out the bacon and sub vegetable broth for chicken broth to make a vegetarian Baked Potato Soup for my daughter.

This recipe is a little different from most baked potato soup recipes in that there’s actually no baked potato used in it. The potatoes are diced and cooked right in the soup. So technically I guess it should just be called Potato Soup. But either way, it isΒ  super yummy and easy.

  1. This is SO perfect. Saturday I had lunch at the Cheesecake Factory in Seattle. I love soup and the soup of the day was baked potato. I wanted it!!!! But come on, ya can’t just eat soup at the Cheesecake Factory. So presto—-a tested recipe! Geez I wish it was ready now. It’s lunch time and I am famished.

  2. This meal is the way to my heart — that soup looks so good! I used to love the Outbacks bread when I used to go there – it might’ve been my favorite part. Ha. Delicious meal, Christin!

  3. This soup looks so nice and warming πŸ™‚ I wish I was not the only one eating soups at home..even if it’s very good, it is just not worth making such soup for myself and then eat it for few weeks:)
