I was so surprised at how quickly this comfort food recipe came together.

She has a brilliant tip – microwave your potatoes to cut down on the cooking time. I quickly zapped my spuds in the microwave while I was cooking up some bacon on the stove top. Before I knew it, the soup was ready!

The only thing I did change about this recipe was that I left some of the potato skins on the potatoes. We love the texture of them and I liked how it gave the soup a little more depth.

It’s obviously totally optional and would be amazing either way.

But seriously guys, you need this book! It’s filled to the brim with not only 100 mouthwatering recipes, but also some super cute and totally do-able crafts to go along with them! I’m super excited about the possibility of these easy crafts making me look like a modern day Martha Stewart to all my friends.

It’s the little things. 😉

This creamy Loaded Baked Potato Soup recipe is ready in less than 30 minutes!

  • Author: Shawn
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 6 to 8 1x
  • Category: Soup
  • Method: Stove Top
  • Cuisine: American
Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 large russet potatoes, scrubbed
  • 8 bacon slices
  • 4 tbsp unsalted Challenge Butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups low fat milk
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 tsp kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Minced fresh chives, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Pierce the potatoes multiple times with a fork, then microwave them for 12 to 15 minutes, or until tender.* Carefully halve the potatoes and let cool. Once cool enough to handle, remove the skins, and cut into chunks.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain and cool. Reserve up to 1 tablespoon of the bacon fat from the pan, discarding the rest. Once the bacon has cooled, crumble it into small pieces.
  3. In a large pot, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the reserved bacon fat, garlic and onion and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the onion is tender. Slowly whisk the flour into the pan and stir for 1 to 2 minutes. Slowly whisk in the milk and half-and-half. Keep whisking until smooth. Gradually add the chicken stock. Bring to a light simmer and whisk in the kosher salt, garlic salt and pepper. Keep at a light simmer until the mixture has thickened slightly, 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. If you’d like to use cheeses and bacon as a garnish, reserve 1/4 cup of t each. Stir in the remaining cheeses, remaining bacon, and the sour cream. Remove the pot from the heat. Scoop potato chunks into the pan, breaking them into small pieces or leaving them chunky, depending on your preference. Serve hot, topped with your favorite garnishes, like cheese, bacon and chives.

Notes

*If desired, you can bake your potatoes in the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and bake the potatoes directly on the rack for 45 minutes or until fork tender.

    All. The. Stars. This soup is the best thing that’s come out of my kitchen in a while. It has been bliss for this pregnant mama. Thank you!!

  2. I doubled this recipe to take to a carry-in supper in a crock-pot. Cooked the potatoes in the Instant Pot, cut the bacon (about 3/4 pound) into pieces before frying, then pretty much followed the recipe. Poured the onion, etc. roux, plus bacon, into the crock pot and heated the other ingredients in the microwave before they were added to make it easier on the crock-pot. Also added some frozen corn which also was heated. Darned good stuff, if I say so myself — others did also. Thanks for a quick & easy recipe.

    So glad I stumbled upon this recipe, it’s delicious!! It’s the perfect consistency and richness. Thanks!

    The only changes I made was throwing in some fresh thyme with the onions/garlic, used 3 cups of whole milk, and I used some homemade ham stock. This soup is definitely going in the rotation.
