Loaded Baked Potato Soup

The other day I had some leftover baked potatoes that I needed to do something with.  So of course my first thought was Loaded Baked Potato Soup, creamy, yummy potato goodness.  My mom has a great recipe that you make using only cream.  I decided that day though that I wanted to find a recipe that was a little more budget friendly and that uses milk.  I ended up adapting a recipe that I found at Baking Like Betty.  However, I think the original recipe would have worked just fine.  It would probably just depend upon if you want it really creamy or not.

Come back tomorrow, I’ll share the recipe for the 15 Minute Cream Biscuits I served with the soup.

  • I’ve used the above recipe, with the exception of using 6 cups of milk (no cream) for years and it’s the best out of all the recipes I’ve ever tried. I don’t like the ones using chicken stock. I always use 2% milk but have tried 3 cups skim and 3 cups 2% with no detrimental affects. Yum…I want some now!

  • Beautiful photo. I know this soup is delicious from making it before!
