I make this sooo often! It's my favorite soup! It's even delicious without the bacon when I make it for my vegetarian friends!

WOW!! This is being added to the rotation - only change I made was half the salt and I added in all options. People are already asking me for the recipe!

Best baked potato soup I’ve made! Even my picky eaters liked it. Thick, creamy, flavorful and so easy to put together!

So tasty!! I did cut back to only 1 pound of bacon but subbed part of the butter with some bacon grease. Super Fall-Winter comfort food recipe and simple to prepare! I didnt bake my pototaoes ahead of time although next time i will!

Sauteed some onion and garlic with the butter when making the roux... amazing.

Turned out to be the thick, creamy and amazing. By the end, I did not need to add salt bc of all the flavors. I also used turkey bacon instead of regular bacon as well. The added season I used was cayenne pepper for more of a spice.

so creamy and very delicious! Best potato soup I've ever had (and I made it!)... It doesn't take long at all to make. I baked the potatoes and the bacon the night before and put them in the fridge over night. It made it easy to cut the potatoes. I didn't use the whole bunch of onions and it was perfect (I can't imagine using the whole bunch, it probably would've been overpowering). It does make quite a lot of soup as well.
