You gotta love a meal that can be made from leftovers. A new, completely different meal! Just bake some extra potatoes and you’re well on your way to your next meal: loaded baked potato soup. Warm, thick, creamy, and topped with cheese, onions, and bacon. Oh yeah. Uh huh. Bacon!

 

2/3 c margarine

2/3 c flour

7 c milk

4 large baked potatoes, peeled and cubed

1 c sour cream

1 t salt

½ t pepper

garnish:

4 green onions, chopped

12 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

1¼ c shredded cheddar cheese

 

In large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour and cook for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Stir in potatoes. Bring to boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in sour cream, salt and pepper. Serve warm with onions, bacon and cheese as garnish.

    Yum! I’m at Brie’s in Wisconsin right now, and she’s been dying for soup because it’s been so cold. This looks like a good choice!

    I hope all is well in Millville and with your family….see you in a week or two!

      Hi Jan!! Oh how I’ve missed you! How’s your trip? How’s Brie? How are the twins? Yeah, with it being so cold there, sounds like you need a good soup. I like this one because it is so simple. Yet awesome comfort food! Well, have a great trip and we’ll look forward to seeing you soon. :)

    We love potato soup, and with the baked potato leftovers we have (and we are hungry now!) I choose this recipe tonight. Thanks!

    • Carol says:

      You’re welcome, Amy. I love when you can turn leftovers into hearty comfort food. Plus, any excuse for bacon!! Does it get cold enough there for you to “need” soup? Or hot cocoa?

      • Amy says:

        haha! no, it is not cold enough. But we are having it tonight again anyway since we LOVE it! And it’s not getting any cooler than this, so let’s just say it’s our window of opportunity. And I have hot chocolate all the time anyway 😉
