Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Ready in 2 hours

A baked potato with all the trimmings thrown together in a big pot!

"I really liked the idea of this recipe. I don't think you have to put everything together in the same order. My fiance isn't much of a cook but she cooked me some of this soup. In the directions it doesn't say to remove the fat from the bacon or to cook the bacon all the way through for crispiness. The soup she made had bacon that was chopped up with all the fat on it still. Other than the directions not being well the idea of this soup is really good. "

Really yummy! Used spring onions instead of chives and not as much cheese - came out nice and thick

Omg this is the BEST potato soup that I've ever had! I cooked the bacon one like medium till it was crispy like I like and I didn't put any chives in cuz I hate them. Everyone loved the soup I had none left.

Love this recipe! Was huge hit for my family. I did cook the bacon longer as recommended by another reviewer since we like crisper bacon. Def a new fav and will make again and again. Thanks for sharing.
