Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Loaded Baked Potato Soup from justataste.com

Grab your spoons, folks. Soup season is upon us. But rather than stroll our way into the world of broths and stocks, I’ve decided we might as well start with a sprint toward the comfort food finish line. And nothing screams, “I feel comforted!” quite like a big bowl of Loaded Baked Potato Soup, crispy bacon, sour cream, cheddar cheese and all.

This easy potato soup was inspired by a similar recipe my mom used to make during the harsh San Diego winters. In those days—the days of fast metabolisms and 2-hour lacrosse practices—I’d pile my bowl so full of toppings that the soup was but a shallow pond surrounding my pork fat and cheddar cheese island.

I’ve since shifted strategies to better appreciate the velvety smoothness of the underlying potato purée, the real star of the dish. All it takes is a blender to transport you from gritty root vegetable to silky potato soup, which brings me to the latest and greatest (and my new favorite) appliance, the KitchenAid Pro Line Series 5-Speed Cordless Hand Blender.

KitchenAid Pro Line Series Cordless Hand Blender

And I’ve partnered with the generous team at KitchenAid to give one lucky reader their very own cordless hand blender.

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Yield: 10 to 12 servings

Prep Time: 30 min

Cook Time: 35 min

Ingredients:

8 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
3/4 cup diced celery
1 1/2 cups diced onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
6 small Russett potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
6 cups low-sodium chicken stock
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
Shredded cheddar cheese, for garnish
Sour cream, for garnish
Sliced scallions, for garnish

Equipment: hand blender or blender

Directions:

In a Dutch oven or large soup pot, cook the bacon over medium heat until all the fat has rendered. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cooked bacon to a paper towel-lined plate and drain off all but 1/4 cup of the drippings.

Reduce the heat to medium-low and then add the celery and onions to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent. Add the garlic and continue cooking for 1 to 2 minutes.

Increase the heat to medium and then add the cubed potatoes, stirring to combine. Cook the potatoes for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, then add the chicken stock. (The chicken stock should just cover the potatoes, so depending on your pot, you may have to add more stock.) Bring the soup to a simmer then cover the pot and cook the soup for 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork-tender.

In a separate medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, whisk in the flour to make a roux. Stir the roux constantly for 1 to 2 minutes until it's pale golden then whisk in the milk. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook it, stirring constantly, until it's thickened slightly. (It should be the consistency of gravy.) Whisk the milk mixture into the potato mixture and cook the soup for 5 minutes over medium-low heat.

Remove the soup from the heat. Transfer 1/3 of the soup to a medium bowl. Using a hand blender, purée the soup that's remaining in the pot until it's smooth. (See Kelly's Notes.) Return the reserved 1/3 of the soup to the pot, stirring to combine.

Stir in the heavy cream and season the soup with salt and pepper. When ready to serve, top each bowl of soup with the cooked bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream and scallions.

Kelly's Notes:
If you don't have a hand blender, you can purée the soup in batches in a blender. Leave 1/3 of the soup in the pot and purée the rest in the blender then continue with the recipe as directed.

I prefer seasoning my soups at the end to avoid over-salting them. That being said, potatoes need a hearty amount of salt, so don't be afraid to start with a teaspoon of salt and at least a few turns of fresh black pepper and work your way up based on your personal preferences.

    I love Potato Soup and make it often for the family. I go about preparing the potatoes differently, which for me is easy and the soup taste great. I use baked potatoes, remove the skin, and squish the potato between my hands into the pot. The smaller pieces of potato act as a natural thickener for the soup, yet you have chunks of larger potato to satisfy the potato lover in the family.

So, first order of business, ARANCINI BALLS! Second – probably drool-worthy slow-cooker honey garlic chicken. Third – your CREAMY TOMATO SOUP. I’ll probably make them all in the same day! Ah, I can’t wait!

    Ohhhh girl! Ever since I studied in Europe for a year and discovered the many uses for immersion blenders, I have been in looooooove with them! With the fall wind blowing in, I’m definitely looking forward to using some the lovely squash that is abundant. I’m definitely looking forward to giving your roasted butternut squash risotto a spin!

    You had me at the Loaded Baked Potato Soup, down here there is a BBQ place that has the most amazing loaded baked potato salad. I absolutely love it, soup is even better. But now, there seem to be so many I cant wait to try. Going to need more freezer space.

    Thank you for the Giveaway, Kelly! I have wanted one of these mixers forever, and would love it if I happened to win it!! I just got opened your email this morning and enjoyed looking at your Potato Soup recipe and pictures! Oddly enough, I just made Loaded Potato Soup last night with our own potatoes and onions! A loaf of my (ongoing) attempt to make the proper Cuban bread and our own homemade Blueberry pie topped it off! (Our own blueberries!) ~J

    Funny thing you ask– I have in the crockpot cooking now – waiting for me when I get home from work the Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken- I wanted to make it last week but did not have the hoisin sauce- I have been craving your Salted Caramel Hand Pies- was planning to make that for dessert tonight but also see the Banana Pudding w/ Salted Caramel Sauce
    tough decision– might make both being I can bring the handpie into work for snack tomorrow- gosh love your site and all your recipes

    Would love one of these mixers– it would make my day!!

    The potato soup looks amazing, but before I start a soup, I’ve got some lentils and speckled bananas dangerously close to spoiling. Tomorrow night’s dinner will be the lentils and spinach and a surprise dessert for my boys (infant, toddler, husband) of banana bread with streusel topping.

    I’ve made so many recipes from your site, its hard to choose. Honestly I made this soup last night, had some for lunch just now and I’m looking forward to it many more times this fall and winter. Its delicious, I generally don’t puree my potato soup, however it gives it such a creamy smooth texture so I’ll be doing it in a few other recipes.

    Baked potato soup is a dreamy classic. Load it up with bacon and a tasty amount of your favorite cheese for the ultimate dose of deliciousness. The more cheese, the better!
