My secret recipe for loaded baked potato soup – full of cheese, green onions and cheesy goodness!
A few months ago I shared 8 great potato soup recipes from other bloggers, and this whole time I have been hoarding my own recipe for baked potato soup. I planned on including it in my future cookbook, whenever I get around to writing one, but no longer. I am sharing it now instead.
Why the rush you ask? Well, I’m still thinking of writing a book. But my current book idea doesn’t have room for baked potatoes. Or potato soup. At least not in its current version in my head. Who knows – that may change. I haven’t written the first page yet, so anything could happen. And maybe then I’ll be wishing I had saved this recipe for my book. 🙂
I still can’t believe that I’m writing and sharing in general. For a very long time when I was asked what I wanted to be “when I grow up,” I would say a poet.
I can’t imagine now trying to make money writing poetry. I have horrible stage fright and I would probably have to read my poems out loud and often. And if I ever got good, or recognized, then I would definitely have to recite. No thanks. And I think I really only wrote 2 good poems anyway. Kind of glad I got too happy to write sad poetry.
Loaded Baked Potato Soup
Anyway. This recipe for loaded baked potato soup is really tasty, and really, really bad for you. Just take a peak at the ingredients. That’s really all I have to say. You can use low fat sour cream or reduced fat cheese – it will take away a little of the flavor but not enough that you really notice.
I do not recommend skim milk or any dairy-substitute milk. I have only tried it once with almond milk so far, but it was way too sweet. We had to throw it out which is always a shame.
Well, I hope you enjoy this soup as much as Mr. B and I do. Eat a bowl (or three) and heat up the leftovers the next day for lunch.
