Loaded baked potato soup is the best! This version uses baked potatoes and just a few ingredients for an easy potato soup recipe that comes together in just a few minutes. Tip: make a batch of crock pot baked potatoes to double up on meal prep: some in this soup, some for later in the week!
So, so good.
So, you know it's cold. My friend Amanda makes fun of me when I say it's freezing here, but it is currently 13 degrees outside and is supposed to get down to 8 or below tonight, so my all measures it's effing freezing. And so we need soup!
There was a restaurant we used to go to a TON in undergrad; it was right near campus but was kind of a legit restaurant instead of one of the fake Aramark restaurants that take your meal plan and have kind of the same foods at every location. This was locally owned and had this baked potato soup that was just ridiculously good. Now, I've spent years trying to recreate it and am definitely not there yet, but this version of baked potato soup is REALLY good. I cheat time by "baking" the potatoes in the microwave, and this soup is done even quicker by using leftover baked potatoes....
