RECIPE: Loaded Baked Potato Soup

This is my really fast and easy dinner when I don't know what to make but I'm starving. It tastes just like a loaded baked potato, and it's really not too bad for you! (Depending on the toppings, haha). *See notes below recipe

Here is a printer-friendly version!

Loaded Baked Potato Soup


2 tsp. canola oil
1 onion, chopped
1 bag frozen potatoes
1 quart chicken broth
1/2 cup milk or cream
1 cup sour cream
Toppings, like shredded cheese, bacon, chives, green onion, etc.


Heat soup pot over medium heat and add oil. Add the onion and sauté until onion is soft. Meanwhile, put the potatoes in a colander and run under hot water to thaw a little.

When onions are soft (not brown) add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add potatoes and return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low, and simmer until potatoes are soft. Add the milk and let it heat through on medium heat (don’t boil the milk, to avoid curdling it).

Sometimes I purée the soup with a stick blender at this point, but you don't have to—it just depends on the texture you’d like. Stir in the sour cream and warm through on medium-low heat (again, don’t boil it).

Ladle into bowls and add your toppings. Makes 4-6 servings, depending on how hungry you are!

*I like to use the crumbled bacon you can buy pre-cooked in a bag, but of course, this would be delicious with freshly cooked bacon.

*If you're not worried about calories, it's amazing when you throw in a handful of cheddar cheese and stir until melted before you ladle it into bowls.
