Loaded Potato Soup Recipe

Loaded Potato Soup Recipe

By Angela McGowan

It hasn’t really got cool enough yet for this soup in central Florida, in fact we were at a local waterpark over the weekend to celebrate my son’s birthday. We started off the day at Monkey Joe’s, a place filled with bounce houses. At the waterpark, he begged to go on a big slide, and we reluctantly took him on one. I came down the slide right after my husband and my son. I was even a little scared, and just new I would find my son crying at the bottom of the slide. To my surprise, he didn’t scream or cry, he was just got really quiet, and then said he was tired and wanted to go home and play with toys.

Yield: Serves 4

Loaded Potato Soup


  • 1/3 lb bacon, chopped
  • 6 medium Idaho potatoes, diced
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, or 1/2 stick
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, diced
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • potato flakes (if needed for added thickening)


  • grated cheddar cheese
  • freshly chopped parsley
  • sliced spring onions


1. Add bacon to a large soup pot and cook until it has rendered it’s fat. Remove and set aside. Then add onions and garlic to bacon fat. Cook until onions start to become translucent and then add butter. Let butter melt and then whisk in flour. Cook for 2 – 3 minutes. Add chicken stock and bring to a boil while scrapping the bottom of the pan. Add milk, potatoes and white pepper. Bring back to a boil and make sure to stir constantly to avoid lumps.

2. Cook over medium heat until potatoes are very tender, stirring from the bottom every few minutes. After potatoes are done, if your soup is too thick, add more stock or milk. If it is too thin, add potato flakes, a few tablespoons at a time, until you get your desired consistency. Wait about 2 minutes in between adding potato flakes to see what the consistency will be before adding more flakes.

3. When soup is done, remove from heat and stir in sour cream. Serve soup topped with crisp bacon, freshly grated cheddar cheese, freshly chopped parsley and chopped green onions.
