Loaded Potato Soup
As the weather begins to get frosty, warm meals are a go to. Autumn is officially soup season in our house. A nice big bowl of homemade Loaded Potato Soup topped with grated cheese, crunchy chopped bacon and bright green onions tops the list as one of our favorite soups.
I used to make this soup for my husband because he absolutely loves potatoes. But now my daughter has adopted it as her favorite soup too. She’s always been a fan of pureed soups. As a 3 year old she loved asparagus soup or “green soup” as she called it. Funny enough, once I used broccoli instead of asparagus in her “green soup” (it wasn’t asparagus season). She could tell the difference! At 3 years old she knew it wasn’t her “green soup!” Mealtime is always an adventure with a toddler. 🙂
Now my daughter is much more adventurous. She enjoys her asparagus soup, but she’s just as excited to eat a big bowl of Cream of Broccoli Soup. And as I mentioned, it seems this Loaded Potato Soup now tops the list. I think it’s because of all the fun toppings — the crunchy bacon pieces, grated cheese, bright green onions and sometimes even sour cream.
This Loaded Potato Soup tastes like everything you love in a loaded baked potato. All the flavors of the warm potato, butter, salt, pepper, and all the toppings combined together in a soup that’ll warm you up as you take each bite.
Besides the fact that everyone in my family enjoys eating this soup, I like making it because it’s easy and the cleanup is a breeze. It only takes one pot, which is just so nice in a dinner, because really who likes to spend all evening in front of the kitchen sink.
But in addition to an easy cleanup, what’s really neat about this one pot meal is the end product. In the end, your soup has so many layers of flavor. The base of this Loaded Potato Soup is the bacon, then the onions, celery and garlic and finally the potatoes. And since you cook the potatoes in the soup broth you get all vitamins and nutrients from the vegetable in your broth. It’s what I like to call the perfect way to eat a vegetable.
