Loaded Baked Potato Soup

 

  Loaded_Baked_Potato_Soup   Now that cold, chilly weather is in full effect, all I want is comforting and warm food to feed my belly. This soup fits the bill. It is thick, creamy baked potato heaven, garnished with bacon, cheese and green onions. Soooo good!

   If you plan a day in advance, and bake the potatoes a night ahead, this soup is perfect to make on busy weeknights. If not, save it for the weekend and you’ll be glad you did. It is nothing short of pure deliciousness! (and makes for amazing leftovers!)

Ingredients
  1. 4-5 medium russet potatoes
  2. 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  3. 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, divided
  4. 6 cups milk ( I used 2%)
  5. 2 teaspoons salt
  6. 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  7. 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  8. 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
  9. 1/2 cup light sour cream
Toppings
  1. Sour cream
  2. Shredded cheese
  3. Chopped green onion
  4. Chopped cooked bacon pieces
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prick the potatoes all over with a fork and then place on a baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven, and let sit until cool enough to handle.
  2. Scoop the insides of the potatoes into a large bowl, discarding the peels. Take a knife and break apart the potatoes into small chunks.
  3. In a large dutch oven or pot, melt the butter. Add 1/4 cup of flour into the pot and whisk into the butter. Cook, and whisk constantly for 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Whisk in the milk and the rest of the flour. Cook until thick and bubbly, about 10 or so minutes. Mix in the potato chunks. Whisk in the salt, pepper and cheddar cheese. Continue to whisk until cheese is melted.
  4. Remove from heat, then stir in sour cream and green onions. Serve immediately. Garnish with extra sour cream, cheese, green onion and bacon, as desired. Enjoy ♥

    I made this for dinner last night. This was probably the easiest homemade potato soup I’ve ever made. The only change I’ll make when I make it again is to add some diced up onion to that butter in the beginning, just because we love onion that much. I was fortunate enough to have fresh chives right out of my garden to put on top of our bowls, and it was awesome!
