Loaded baked potato soup is a hearty and comforting dish, perfect for cold days. Here’s a recipe to guide you through making this delicious soup:

Ingredients: 4 large russet potatoes, washed and dried 4 slices of bacon, chopped 1 medium onion, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced 4 cups chicken broth 1 cup heavy cream 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese 1/2 cup sour cream Salt and pepper to taste Chopped green onions or chives, for garnish Additional shredded cheddar cheese, for garnish Instructions: Prepare the potatoes: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

Pierce the potatoes several times with a fork and place them on a baking sheet. Bake the potatoes in the preheated oven for about 45-60 minutes, or until they are tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and let them cool slightly.

Cook the bacon and onions: In a large pot or Dutch oven, cook the chopped bacon over medium heat until it becomes crisp. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and set it aside on a plate lined with paper towels to drain. In the same pot with the bacon drippings, add the diced onion and cook until it becomes translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.

Prepare the soup base: Peel the baked potatoes and roughly chop them into chunks. Add the chopped potatoes to the pot with the cooked onions and garlic. Pour in the chicken broth and bring the mixture to a simmer. Let the soup simmer for about 10-15 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together. Blend the soup: Using an immersion blender or a regular blender, blend the soup until it reaches your desired consistency. You can leave it slightly chunky or blend it until it’s completely smooth.

Finish the soup: Stir in the heavy cream, shredded cheddar cheese, and sour cream until everything is well combined and the cheese is melted. Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste. Serve: Ladle the loaded baked potato soup into bowls. Top each serving with the crispy bacon pieces, chopped green onions or chives, and additional shredded cheddar cheese, if desired. Serve hot and enjoy!

This loaded baked potato soup is sure to warm you up and satisfy your craving for comfort food!
