Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Loaded Baked Potato Soup


  • 4 large baked potatoes (about 4.5 - 5 cups worth), baked, peeled and diced
  • 2/3 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 6 cups milk
  • salt & pepper , to taste
  • 4 green onions, chopped & divided (optional - lovely with or without them)
  • 12 slices of bacon, cooked, crumbled and divided (or about 1 1/2 'cans' of bacon pieces)
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, divided
  • 8 ounces sour cream


  • If not done already, bake the potatoes, cool them, then peel them and dice them. Not super small, but not very big either.
  • In a sauce pan over low heat, melt butter and then add flour. Stir until smooth. Cook 1 minute stirring constantly.
  • Add milk slowly. Cook over medium heat, stirring often until thick and bubbly.
  • Add potatoes, salt & pepper, 2 tablespoons of the green onions, 1/2 of the bacon and 1 cup of cheddar cheese. Cook until heated through.
  • Stir in sour cream. Add in more milk if too thick.
  • Serve with cheese, bacon pieces and green onions on top.
