Loaded Baked Potato Soup

I posted one of our favorite soup recipes last fall but our food photography was pretty much atrocious then.  Not that it’s Pioneer Woman good now but we’re making improvements.  Did you know that Nate has a thing for the Pioneer Woman?  I don’t think it’s really a romantic thing.  More of a “I wish my wife was as good with a camera and whisk” kind of thing.  I get it. 

He’s blushing now.  That’s why I love him.

Enough mushy stuff.  Well, mushy love stuff.  How about mushy soup stuff?

Loaded Baked Potato Soup to be exact.

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

We love this soup because it’s easy enough to make on a week night but still tastes week-end good.  You get that, right? 

Loaded “Baked Potato” Soup

  • Southern Style Hash browns (1 bag)
  • 3 cans chicken broth
  • 3 cups milk
  • 12 pieces of bacon (we go with the easy microwave kind)
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 green onion (diced)

Combine broth, milk, and green onion in stock pot.  Once hot, add hash browns.  Cook hash browns until mushy (technical term).  Mash with potato masher (one of my favorite utensils..after the whisk).  Add bacon.  Simmer for about 5 minutes.  Add cheese.  Simmer for about 5 minutes.  Add flour to thicken to desired consistency.  Enjoy!

We always enjoy it with salad Rhodes frozen bread.

  1. I read the ingredients and I thought, "there are no potatoes, she must have forgotten an ingredient."
    Sigh.
    I need another cup of coffee.
    I am definitely pinning this!!

  2. I'm a big fan of French Onion Soup. For years, I was convinced I would hate it because soggy bread makes me gag. But now my boyfriend and I just make it at home, and I can broil my cheesy bread on the side. Delish! Here's how we make it, with a bit of apple cider. So good on chilly days. http://www.examiner.com/article/classic-french-onion-soup-with-a-local-twist-for-the-holidays

  3. Really dumb question... I'm guessing you get frozen hash browns. Do you defrost them first or put them in frozen?

  8. Must try this asap. I love potato soup in the fall but rarely make it because usually the ingredient list is a mile long and I fall asleep before reading through it--but this looks manageable!
    I just made granola this saturday--it'll be making a frequent reappearance this fall. Yum.

  9. mmmm...soup. I love me some soup. I am not sure I have favourite though, maybe broccoli cheese? I have been wanting to try lasagna soup for a while now too.

  10. The weather is perfect for this and my guys would love it! I love broccoli cheese but it's like eating extra pounds so I don't indulge often.

  13. I made this soup last fall when you posted the recipe (and many times that winter). My daughter was just asking to make some this weekend so I bought the hashbrowns, we'll be making a batch soon! The kids love to take it to school in a thermos for lunch.

  14. I LOVE baked potato soup (sans the bacon -gasp I know!- and green onion though.) Girlfriend is picky.
    PW might make us womenfolk look bad, but Marlboro Man makes men look like weak-wristed sissy-boys.

  18. Hi just stumbled upon your website via Yahoo after I
    typed in, "Blogger: Decor And The Dog" or perhaps something similar (can't quite remember exactly). In any case, I'm delighted I
    found it simply because your content is exactly what I'm looking for (writing a university paper) and I hope you don't
    mind if I collect some information from here and I will of course credit you as the source.
    Appreciate it.

  26. I was curious if you ever considered changing the
    page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
    or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  28. Howdy, I'm new to blogging and internet sites in general and was curious about how you got the "www" included in your web address name? I see your web address, "http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=7658324608798777023&postID=6599124401219050445" has the www and my domain looks like, "http://mydomain.com". Do you know the way I can alter this? I'm using Wordpress
    platform. Thanks
