Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Load Baked Potato soup is delicious and so great on a cold day. It is creamy, all of the flavors perfectly combine to make that perfect meal or side and it is a crowd pleaser at our home.

This is easy to make, but takes a bit of prep time. I like to chop the onion and garlic first and put it aside. Next peeling the potatoes and cutting them up. I like to do this because then lastly I cut up the bacon so don’t cut anything else on the same cutting board as raw meat.

We love this soup and you will too!
