Favorite Fall Soup Recipe Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Favorite Fall Soup Recipe Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Image title

Welcome, October! This is my favorite time of year, and apparently it's special to many people! I have repeatedly seen memes on Facebook about October, Fall, and Halloween. One of my favorites has been, "I've been waiting for October since last October!".  With October comes cooler temps, warmer clothing, football, bonfires, and hearty soups for dinner. Loaded baked potato soup has long been one of my family's most requested cooler weather meals, and so I thought I would share this family recipe.  Loaded baked potato soup is thick and creamy, and you can use leftover baked or mashed potatoes in it as well. 


  • 10-12 slices of bacon

  • 2/3 cup butter

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour

  • 6 cups of milk

  • 1 cup of chicken broth

  • 4-5  large baked potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • 4 green onions, finely chopped

  • 1 1/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet and cook over medium heat until browned. Drain, crumble, and set aside.

  2. In a stock pot or Dutch oven, melt the butter over low heat and whisk in flour until smooth.  Add the chicken broth, still whisking until a smooth consistency. Gradually stir in milk, whisking constantly until thickened. Then, stir in potatoes and onions. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently.

  3. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Mix in crumbled bacon, cheese, sour cream, salt, and pepper. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until cheese is melted.

Serve in individual bowls, garnished with a bit of grated cheddar, bacon bits, and sprinkle with a few green onion pieces or some chopped red onion for color.
